Party Pizza Pinwheels

Who doesn't like a pizza bun? Bake these up and throw them in the freezer to enjoy with soup or stews, make ahead for the lunch boxes, or get the kids to cook with you as an afternoon activity. Either way, these buns are really delicious!

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 Tbsp sugar
3 1/2 Tbsp butter, cubed and kept cold
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
approximately 1/4 cup milk

Pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce
Mozzarella cheese, grated

Pre-heat oven to 400 F.

Stir together the flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. Slowly add the milk, stirring, until the mixture comes together and forms a ball.

On a lightly floured counter, knead the mixture five or six times until the dough is smooth. Roll out dough so that it is in the shape of a rectangle. Be SURE to have the counter dusted with flour before you go onto the next step.

Top the dough lightly with some pizza sauce, and sprinkle mozarella cheese on top. With the longest side facing you (as in the picture), gently roll the dough so it looks as pictured below. It may be a bit gooey, as the pizza sauce adds a lot of liquid. If you haven't floured your counter, it may stick.

You should end up with one long roll of dough. Cut into 12 pieces and place them about 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet (mine is non stick so it was okay not to grease it.)

Bake for about 10-12 minutes, until they are golden brown. These are delicious with soup, on their own in a lunch box, or for a party.
