Pizza Pinwheels

I don’t think it’s any secret that I love to entertain. We have friends and family over quite often. I’ll look for any excuse to send out an invite asking folks to join us for a little fun.

Of course with events like the big game coming up, it’s a given that we’ll be hosting a fun shindig! Last year we had a big group of folks join us and I am betting that the guest list will be even bigger this year.

You know that means that I have to whip up some tasty foods for everyone. Handheld snacks are a must-have when you have a bunch of folks watching a football game. You don’t want to have to deal with a bunch of utensils when you are jumping up cheering on your favorite team.

One of my absolute favorite game day appetizers are these Pizza Pinwheels. They are so easy to make and are sure to be a hit. Plus you only need a few ingredients and you can have them ready in a flash. Grab the kids and have them help you. My Jeb-a-doo will be the first to volunteer when he hears the word pizza.
