How to make Pinwheels

Finger foods always tend to go over well for most types of parties which is why I love these little pinwheels. Pinwheel Snacks That Taste As Good As They Look. And the most exciting part is you can stuff with variety of flavored ingredients like pizza pinwheels can be stuffed with cheese and veggies.
Pinwheels are so easy to make so I love to prepare for small get-together, even picnic.
My favorites are Spinach pinwheels. Flaky puff pastry with melted cheese and garlicky spinach, shaped into cute little spirals – these Cheesy Spinach Pinwheels make a perfect appetizer.

Kids tend to love pizza pinwheels. Not only kids but almost everyone will enjoy pizza pinwheels in your next party.

I also love to make fusion pinwheels by making Indian stuffing like Chili paneer, Samosa stuffing, and so on. One can make even assorted pinwheels.

I usually use crescent roll dough to make pinwheels flaky. Puff pastry or even pizza dough can be used. If I want to make pinwheels using pizza dough, I add butter instead of oil in pizza dough to get that flaky texture.
