In need of an easy appetizer? These Cubano Pizza Pinwheels are a winner. I know it sounds weird, but trust me they are delicious. A traditional Cubano sandwich has roasted pork, ham, pickles, swiss cheese, and mustard. We kept this recipe easy and omitted the roast pork, but all the other ingredients are rolled up in some pizza dough. You could definatley add roast pork if you have some handy.
How to make Cubano Pizza Pinwheels:
- Make some Homemade Pizza Dough or use store bought pizza dough.
- Spread yellow mustard all over the dough for the sauce.
- Sprinkle sliced ham, mozzarella cheese, swiss cheese, and diced pickles.
- Roll everything up into a log, and slice it into eight equal pieces.
- Bake for 15 minutes at 450 degrees.
