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

"This recipe was ok, but there was a strong unidentified taste to it. If I were to make it again, I might cut the italian seasonings in half or maybe leave it out entirely."

"Excellent!!! We gave some to our 95-year old neighbor. She said, "I loved those little round things. What was in them?""

"Very easy and tasty. Using the crescent rolls that are sheets work much, much better. I did not chop the pepperoni. Rather I just laid them on top of the cheese mixture and then rolled up. I bought high end pizza sauce too. But they are good without the sauce too."

"These were fabulous; I'd give them 4.5 stars, but the website won't let me change my rating... We had to cook them about 20 minutes to get all the dough cooked though."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 18, 2010

"My family loved these! I did ladel the pizza sauce on the dough before spreading on the filling. Also I had pepperoni slices on hand so rather than diced pepperoni in the filling, I layered pepperoni slices on top of the filling before rolling...this did make it a little harder to roll up and slice."
