Kid-Approved Food: Pinwheel Recipes
We are all about easy food here on Ruffles and Rain Boots. Kids and adults both love fun food, and pinwheel sandwiches, pinwheel appetizers, and basically, anything wrapped to look like a pinwheel qualifies!
In addition to these fun pizza pinwheels, we’ve also shared a family-favorite: ham and cheese pinwheels. They are so much fun to make and the kids love getting involved.
But we are making a fun way to serve pizza with these pepperoni pinwheels and cheese pizza pinwheels. How much fun are these?!

Easy Pizza Pinwheels Ingredients
This is an easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy kind of recipe, friends. Get the kids in the kitchen and let them help with these fun pinwheel pizzas.
- 8 flour tortillas
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce
- 8 ounces shredded Mozzarella cheese
- 8 ounces cream cheese (room temperature works best)
- 4-5 ounces of mini pepperoni (it’s okay if you eat some…)
How to Make Pizza Pinwheels
Note: you can bake them for a few minutes before rolling, just enough to melt the cheese slightly. If you do this, remove the flat pizzas, roll tightly in a clean dish towel, and leave until they cool a bit. Then slice and serve.

This looks great and easy. What size tortillas did you use?
Thanks, Dennis – we make them all the time and they are very easy. We use the soft taco size, so a normal-sized flour tortilla (not the big burrito ones) because they’re for the kiddo (she’s 7), but if you have a party, making them with the larger tortillas will work (they’ll just need a bit more of the ingredients – likely double).
Hope that helps!
