These easy pizza pinwheels ditch the sugar and make a fun dinner. You can pick up the fixings at the grocery store, including fresh pizza dough and sauce if you don't have time to make your own. If packing in a lunchbox, cool the pinwheels on a rack then wrap in foil and include an ice-pack.
Recipe type: Dinner
  • 1 pound fresh pizza dough
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup homemade tomato sauce or packaged pizza sauce
  • 6 ounces or 1½ cups grated part skim mozzarella cheese
  • 6 1-ounce slices ham
  • ½ cup torn kale leaves
  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Grease a rimmed baking sheet with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  2. Sprinkle a work surface with flour and form the dough into a 18x12 inch rectangle.
  3. Spread the sauce on the dough, leaving a ½-inch border.
  4. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the dough, then evenly layer on the ham slices and the kale leaves.
  5. Starting with the wide side of the rectangle, roll the dough away from you into a log like a jelly roll.
  6. Brush the roll with the remaining tablespoon of oil. Cut the roll in half, then cut each half into 4 equal sections, resulting in 8 pinwheels.
  7. Place pinwheels on the greased baking sheet. Lightly press each pinwheel down to slightly flatten. The ham should be peeking out on top of each pinwheel. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.
  8. Let cool at least 5 minutes before serving. Be careful as the filling will be hot. To pack in a lunchbox, let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before wrapping in foil.
