Tips to Make these Cheeseburger Rolls

How Do I Make this Cheeseburger Pinwheels?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial. If you’re making a pinwheel sandwiches playlist on YouTube, here is our cheeseburger pinwheels video tutorial.
- 1 pound hamburger
- 2 packages refrigerated pizza dough
- 2 cups cheese
- 1 package bacon bits
- Onion Powder
- ¼ cup olive oil
- Preheat oven as indicated on your pizza dough packaging.
- In a pan, brown the hamburger. Season with salt and pepper. Drain the excess grease. Allow to cool for a few minutes. You will want to keep it warm but not hot.
- On a sprayed cookie sheet, unroll a prepackaged pizza dough.
- Spread half of the hamburger meat over the pizza.
- Top with 1 cup cheese.
- Add bacon bits on top of the cheese.
- Sprinkle with onion powder. (Or diced onion!)
- Starting from one end, roll the dough up with all of the meat and cheese inside. Pinch closed the sides.
- Repeat with the other package of dough.
- Brush the top of the dough with a bit of olive oil to help it crisp to a nice brown.
- Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
- Allow to cool. Cut into slices.
- Serve with ketchup and mustard for dipping.
