Prosciutto Mozzarella Pinwheels

Prosciutto Mozzarella Pinwheels

Even though this is listed as a “kids recipe” in Giada de Laurentiis’ book “New Italian Favorites”, I thought it was a great weeknight meal for me and Ben.  Last week was a successful meal planning week and this was one of those dinners.  Ben loved this, and I ate it for lunch the next day.   It’s super simple and a nice switch up from your every day chicken or pasta.

Prosciutto Mozzarella Pinwheels (Giada de Laurentiis “New Italian Favorites”)

Four, for dusting
1 pound purchased pizza dough
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
7 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
1 cup coarsely chopped baby spinach (about 1 1/2 ounces)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

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

On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pizza dough into a 12- to 14-inch circle, about 1/4 thick. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella over the dough. Arrange the prosciutto over the cheese in a single layer. Sprinkle with the chopped spinach, then top with the remaining cheese.

Roll the dough into the thin cylinder, gently tucking in the ends. Brush the entire roll with the olive oil and season with the 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 or 4 minutes, then use a serrated knife to cut it into 3/4-inch wide slices.

  4. Looks great! This may be a stupid question, but where do you find prosciutto? Does your regular grocery store carry it? I bet ours does, but I don’t know where to look!

    • Hey Annie! You shouldn’t have a problem finding prosciutto at the deli in any major supermarket or grocery store. They can thinly slice it for you! If you want to make it a little more fun, try finding an Italian market near you and I bet they’ll have some really good prosciutto!

  5. Ooh, I made these a while ago and they are so delicious! Looks good!

  6. This looks delicious. Perfect for Sunday. I will have to try this. I have had success with Giadas recipes efore, but havent tried this one. Thanks!

  7. These look so good, I bet they would be great with a hot bowl of soup on a cold night.
