Homemade Pinwheels, just like the ones found in pizza places on Long Island and all over the boroughs of NYC!  They can easily be made at home and personalized to whatever filling you crave!

You can add different veggies, different cheeses, or meats. Even chicken or ground beef would work. A dab of ricotta if you want. Pepperoni, or sausage is a typical filling offered at the pizza places.

This spinach/broccoli/mozzarella combo is my favorite.  

Usually they are served with a small container of tomato sauce for dipping.  They are so delicious!  

See some steps how I make it in the slideshow below.
