Calabrese Salami and Mozzarella Pinwheels

This is a new favorite of mine.  Hands down!  At first, I thought it was missing something.  It seemed too plain, I thought of adding a little pizza sauce to add some flavor but I am glad I didn’t.  It had so much flavor.  Everything complimented each other really well, nothing was overpowering it was simply delicious!  You could alternately use prosciutto instead of the calabrese salami but I do recommend trying both because they are both really amazing.  You could serve this as a main dish or as an appetizer.  It is a very quick and simple recipe that will have you hooked after the first try.

Ingredients and Directions for Calabrese Salami and Mozzarella Pinwheels

Ingredients and Directions for Calabrese Salami and Mozzarella Pinwheels

1.  Ingredients

Flour, for dusting

1 pound pizza dough

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

7 ounces calabrese salami, thinly sliced

1 cup coarsely chopped baby spinach

1 tablespoon olive oil

salt and pepper

To Prepare the Pinwheels

Preheat the oven to 425F and position a rack in the lower third of the oven.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2.  On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pizza dough into a 12- to 14-inch circle, about 1/4 inch thick.

3.  Sprinkle half of the mozzarella over the dough.

4.  Arrange the salami over the cheese in a single layer.

5.  Sprinkle with the chopped spinach, the top with the remaining cheese.

6.  Roll the dough into a thin cylinder, gently tucking in the ends.  Brush the entire roll with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Place the dough, seam side down, on the baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Cool the roll for 3-4 minutes, then use a serrated knife to cut it into 3/4-inch wide slices.

Serves 6-8

You could make these into individual logs which is great if you have children because then everyone may pitch in and make their very own!
