It’s fall, and that means football. In our house, certain food just goes with a football game. For example, chili is a classic Sunday football meal. Nachos of any kind are great for a weekend game. And of course you have chicken wings and jalapeño poppers that are in the “classic game food” category as well. One thing that Matt often request for a football game snack is pepperoni pinwheels. He loves these little bite size pizza snacks, and he can easily devour a whole plate of them before half time. I don’t mind making them for him at all, because they are a five ingredient snack that is quick and easy.
2 cans of refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 package of pepperoni
1 bag of shredded mozzarella cheese
Open can of dough and cut dough in half. Unroll both of the halves. Top the dough liberally with pepperoni. Add cheese and sprinkle dried oregano on top of the cheese. Roll up each half and cut each half into eight “pinwheels”. Follow the directions on the can of dough for baking. Each can of crescent rolls will make 16 “pinwheels” yielding 32 total. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
