New Year, New Recipes!!


Pizza Pinwheels

A new and fun way to eat pizza!


  • 1 (8-ounce) can of refrigerated reduced-fat crescent roll dough
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 24 slices of turkey pepperoni
  • 1 (14-ounce) can of reduced sodium pizza sauce


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees Celsius)
  • On a large baking sheet, pinch the 8 crescent roll dough triangles into 4 rectangles. Layer each rectangle with 6 slices of pepperoni and even amounts of mozzarella cheese. Roll tightly lengthwise and slice each into 4 or more pieces.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.


Turkey Pinwheels

As simple as making a sandwich!


  • 1 large whole wheat tortilla
  • 1 natural cheese slice, torn in half (Swiss, provolone, mozzarella, cheddar)
  • 3 to 4 thin slices of turkey
  • Spinach or mixed greens
  • Tomato
  • Reduced-fat cream cheese or hummus
  • Cucumbers
  • Optional ingredients: onions, dill, mayonnaise, ranch, olives, everything seasoning


  • Lay tortilla flat
  • Add the remaining ingredients on top of each other, in this order: spread, cheese, spinach, and/or mixed greens, turkey, tomato, and cucumbers. Try to keep everything in a line from one side of the tortilla to the other.
  • Starting at the bottom, roll the tortilla up tightly. Trim off ends.
  • Secure with toothpicks, spaced out as evenly apart as possible.
  • Cut in between toothpicks with a knife.

Note: The toothpicks can be removed as long as the pinwheels haven’t been overstuffed and they’re going to be arranged on something like a platter. Otherwise, we suggest leaving the toothpicks in.
