Calzone Pinwheels

Once you try these mini-sized calzones, you may never go back to the large ones. Not only do these pretty bites take advantage of convenient refrigerator crescent rolls, but they can be made ahead and popped in the oven right before company arrives. No one can eat just one and people love the cheesy, fresh taste! —Lisa Smith, Bryan, Ohio

    I made these pinwheels for an upcoming cocktail party. Mine turned out kind of soggy and tasted extremely Crescent roll-y; very bread-y. My husband didn't like them. I don't think I'll serve them at my party.

    I omitted the mushrooms, just personal preference; and added garlic because I put garlic in everything! Tasty, cute little treats, kids especially, would love,

    Easy to make; easier if I place the rolls in the freezer for 20 minutes before cutting; they turn out beautifully. I added olives for my family.

    I have not made these but want to comment on the way TOH presents their recipes for printing always requiring 2 sheets of paper because of layout. print "directions" to the left of "ingredients

    These are easy to make and great for a Sunday afternoon of watching football! This is a cross of pizza and lasagne with the addition of the ricotta cheese.Family friendly recipe! Very good!

    These were pretty good. The sauce made them taste better. I left out the mushrooms.

    These were very easy to make and very yummy! I omitted the peppers and mushrooms and switched out the pepperoni for some kolbassa I had on hand. I took them to a party and they were a real hit! Will definitely make them again.

    These were just OK. Was disappointed in the lack of flavor.
