Pizza Pinwheels

I made these a couple of weeks ago for my nephew and niece. Then I also made some for my boyfriend, Stephen. Everyone absolutely loved them, and they are so easy to make. But you might want to make a lot, because it is really hard to eat just one.

Pizza Pinwheels

2 puff pastry sheets, thawed
1/4 c. pizza sauce
1/2 c. pepperoni slices
1 c. smoked cheddar cheese, shredded

Unfold the puff pastry sheets and crimp the seams together, if necessary. With long side of the sheet facing you, spread half of the pizza sauce on the sheet, leaving about 2 inches without sauce along the long side of the sheet farthest from you. Sprinkle sauce with 1/4 cup cheese, layer half of pepperoni slices and top with 1/4 cup cheese. Roll puff pastry into a pinwheel, rolling away from you. Press finger along edge of seam to seal. Put puff pastry on cutting board, seam side down. Repeat process with second puff pastry and other half of ingredients. Place pinwheels in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Remove from refrigerator and slice into 12 equal pinwheels. Place pinwheels flat on greased baking sheet. Bake in 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
