Game Day Pepperoni Pinwheels

Pepperoni rolls were always a go-to recipe growing up. Whether it was for an afternoon snack or the most popular appetizer at a Christmas Eve party, pepperoni rolls were always a hit. Now that football is back in full-swing, it’s time to think about tailgate and game day recipes. This spin on my favorite pepperoni rolls is the perfect, finger food snack and it’s game day approved!











My mom has been making pepperoni rolls for as long as I can remember, and it’s always been one of my favorites {especially with the addition of the banana peppers!}. I wanted to change up the recipe a little, just so they were different, so I added the pizza sauce. It gave the pinwheels and amazing flavor, but it’s definitely optional when making the pinwheels and rolls. 

I would recommend doubling {at least} this recipe if you are making it for a crowd. One pizza dough gives you about 10 pinwheels and after we ate through these pretty quickly, I really wished we had more! Check out this easy, game day recipe below!
