Pinwheel pizzas are delicious treats which make perfect snacks. It is perfect for parties too. You can flavor it any way you like â€“all meat, Hawaiian, margherita or even just plain old garlic and cheese. Marinara sauce can also make a good dip for this recipe. It is best served warm, so that the cheese is soft and melted. Mozzarella can be a good alternative to cheddar as well because of its taste and chewiness.
For this recipe, we used a cheese and herb dough. Just like anything else, you may alter it as you wish. Regular pizza crust dough will do just fine too. Moreover, it is interesting to know that nutritional yeast is also a good cheese alternative for the dough. It has a cheesy and nutty taste and it is rich in B complex vitamins and it is a complete protein.
