Prosciutto Mozzarella Pinwheels

Hi all. I am on a huge Giada kick & loving all the recipes in her new book plus some old ones. What I like to do is skim through her show on Food Network & if there are any recipes I am interested in I quickly add the link to my list on my sidebar.

Anyway, this appetizer is awesome!!! I haven't worked with prosciutto much in the past but it's a salty meat, an Italian word for ham. This was simple & fun to make, ready to go in the oven as soon as the bell went off. And delicious!!!!!!

Flour, for dusting
1 lb purchased pizza dough (I bought fresh from deli)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
7 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced
1 cup coarsely chopped baby spinach
1 tblsp olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Preheat oven to 425 & position rack in lower third of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. If not, grease one.

On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pizza dough into a 12 to 14-inch circle, about 1/4-inch thick. Sprinkle 1/2 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 a thin cylinder, gently tucking in the ends. Brush the entire roll with the olive oil & season with the salt & pepper. Place the dough, seam-side down, on the baking sheet & bake for 25 minutes until the top is golden brown.

Cool the roll for 10 minutes, then use a serrated knife to cut it into 3/4-inch slices.

My husband will love when I make this. Hey, thanks for the word of encouragement about my little "extra" note this week. I am glad you keep coming back.

Bitsy said...

Seriously, can I just hire you to come cook for my family? LOL!!!

Printing this one out!

Tara @ Feels like home said...

This sounds delicious. I think it would be great with basil leaves instead of spinach, too.

I wonder why it's an appetizer. If you cut it into larger pieces, it would be a great stromboli-type meal. Yum!

Pam said...

I love Giada's recipes, too, though I don't have a cookbook of hers (yet). I usually just watch her shows and download the recipes.

This looks DELECTABLE. I must try it soon. Thanks!

And thanks for stopping by my blog, too, and commenting. You're so sweet!
