It's time for Potluck at IHCC, something I look forward to each month. For August I picked Giada de Laurentis' recipe for Mozzarella Pinwheels. This is a great lunch and easy to make too. Some of you will be exhausted from back to school shopping and this would make a nice lunch to bribe your kiddies with after a day of shopping.
•Flour, for dusting
•1 pound of pizza dough (if you don't make it grab it from the cold case at the bakery in your grocery store)
•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 the oven to 425 degrees F and position a rack in the lower 1/3 of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the pizza dough. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Layer ham or proscuitto, add fresh chopped spinach. Now top with mozzarella. Roll it up!
I used ham for this pinwheel...........
Bake at 425 F for 25 minutes. Let it cool before you cut it.
