Pepperoni Pin Wheels (Cheese Dough) by Jacpod


DOUGH 220g of shredded Mozzarella Cheese 55g cream cheese 3/4 cup of almond meal 2 Tablespoons of oat fiber 1 large egg, beaten PINWHEELS 3 oz of Hormel Large Round Pepperoni 1/4 cup pizza sauce 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese


To make your dough add your shredded mozzarella and the cream cheese to a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the cheese for short bursts of 30 seconds. After every 30 seconds, remove from the microwave and stir. You want the cheese to be melted enough to stir the cream cheese in completely.
Once it is at the smoothest consistency take it out and add in the dry ingredients and the egg. Mix the dry ingredients into the cheese until there are no lumps. For the best results spray your hands with cooking spray and knead the cheese dough with your hands.
When there are no visible lumps of dry ingredients your dough is ready to roll out.
At any time if your dough gets hard to work with microwave it for 30 seconds until it is softer and easier to work with.
Make your cheese dough and roll it out into a rectangular shape between two pieces of wax paper. About 1/4 inch thick, but it doesn't have to be perfect.
After you have your dough rolled out spread the pizza sauce evenly around the dough. You only want a light even coating of the sauce. Too much makes the dough soggy when baked.
Layer your pepperoni slices across the top of the pizza sauce and top with the 1/2 cup of shredded Mozzarella cheese. If you want to leave the cheese off on this step that is fine.
Next begin with the end of the dough closest to you and roll it toward the opposite end. Make sure you are rolling it as tightly as possible. This will ensure it holds together well when sliced and baked. It will also make a prettier pinwheel.
Wrap you rolled pinwheels in the wax paper and chill in the refrigerator for an hour at least. This step is needed for easier slicing.
After your roll has chilled, slice it into 24-26 slices with a very sharp knife.
Place the pinwheels on a greased baking sheet about 1-2 inches a part and bake for about 16-18 minutes in a 400 degree oven. Watch carefully after 14 minutes. You are looking for a nice golden brown color.
Serve warm with a dipping sauce.
