Calzone Pinwheels Recipe

Once you try these mini-sized calzones, you may never go back to the large ones. Not only do these pretty bites take advantage of convenient refrigerator crescent rolls, but they can be made ahead and popped in the oven right before company arrives. No one can eat just one and people love the cheesy, fresh taste! —Lisa Smith, Bryan, Ohio

Yum! These wre excellent. I used refrigerated pizza crust instead of the crescent rolls and left out the peppers and mushrooms. I added some chopped leftover steak.

We were a bit afraid of ricotta cheese but these pinwheels were excellent. I omitted the pizza sauce for my own marinara sauce.
