Spinach and Mozzarella Pinwheels

I have a favorite show… Odd Mom Out.  I know the season finale was a few days ago, and I have yet to see it!  That’s just how it goes in my home.  Handsome and I are DVR watchers!  Handsome likes it because there are no commercials, and I like it because Handsome and I cuddle on the couch together, enjoy a glass of wine (or two) and have a snack.

Spinach and Mozzarella Pinwheels

This is what Handsome has requested when we catch up on our favorite shows this weekend, spinach and mozzarella pinwheels.  They are delicious and so very easy to make.  I use this home made pizza dough recipe, but they can easily be made with a can of Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust.

Spinach and Mozzarella Pinwheels

Once the dough is rolled out, spread the Mozzarella cheese and spinach to cover the dough.

Roll the dough into a log and cut into 1″ rounds.
