Delicious Chicken Pizza Pinwheel Recipe

Pinwheels are such a delicious treat to have. You can have them for breakfast or during the day as a snack. During my time in secondary school, there was a restaurant right across the street from my school that sold the BEST pinwheels. I would always anticipate buying during my lunch break. There are so many variations of pinwheels such as: steak, ham & cheese etc. and different ways you can make them e.g., mini or jumbo pinwheels. I usually enjoy making mine a bit large with either grounded chicken or beef. So, let us get into the dough! It is oh-so-soft and fluffy. Literally, it is like a taste of heaven!!The carrots and corn added to the sauce make every bite so flavorful and delicious. This recipe is AH-MAZING. I do hope you guys enjoy it!

Helpful Tips:

  1. You can put any cheese you like into the pinwheel; it does not have to be parmesan cheese.
  2. Sparkling water is an important ingredient as it makes the dough incredibly soft just like pizza.
  3. Everything goes quickly with regards to mixing the dough, so, ensure all your ingredients are nearby.
  4. I used my KitchenAid mixer to knead my dough, but you can also use your hands.
