    I decided to add finely chopped pepperoni on top of the pizza sauce and I don't know if that's what made them so mushy inside. I chilled it, too, before slicing as suggested, which seemed to have made it easier to slice. But these just did not turn out for me. I doubt I'll try it again.

    I added pepperoni and used scissors to cut the dough instead of a knife, this made them appear more like a pinwheel and less like a flat tire. Overall, though, they were too soft and did not bake up like the picture. Maybe I will put them in the refrigerator next time before cutting them.

    My grandson (12) asked me for the recipe so that he can make it again.

    After I rolled the dough in jelly-roll style, I put it in the fringe for about 15 minutes. It was much easier to cut into slices after it had been chilled. Everyone liked this recipe, next time I will chop up some pepperoni into small pieces and put on top with the tomatoes and cheese.
