Need a quick and easy snack idea that’s also healthy and delicious? It may seem like an impossible ask, but we’re here to help with these Easy Pepperoni Pizza Pinwheels. Not only are they super simple to make, they taste like a slice of pizza while also fitting into your weight loss plan. What could be better?
When we say that these pizza pinwheels are easy to make, we mean it! Just grab two whole wheat tortillas and top them with low-sodium pizza or marinara sauce, Italian seasoning, turkey pepperoni and part skim shredded mozzarella cheese. Roll them up and place them on a baking sheet with the seam side facing down. Bake at 400 degrees for eight minutes or until the cheese has melted. Let the pepperoni pizza roll ups cool slightly, then slice them up into bite-sized pieces.
That’s it! We told you it was easy. If you want to switch things up a bit, you can add more spices like garlic powder. You can also add in your other favorite pizza toppings, such as olives, grated parmesan cheese or jarred jalapenos. Need an easy way to get in more veggies? This recipe is the perfect place to include them! We think that sliced tomatoes, onions or bell peppers would pair perfectly with the flavors of pepperoni pizza.
