These artichoke spinach pinwheels are definitely going to make your guests rave for more. Super easy, packed with nutritious ingredients and tasty pinwheels are perfect appetizers for the holiday season.
I never had these pinwheels until recently when I happen to attend a housewarming party for one of my friends. They served a spinach-based pinwheel and I absolutely loved it instantly. It was so delicious that I knew I had to try this at home.
However, I gave these pinwheels a twist of my own by adding a variety of other ingredients that I love. When it comes to making pinwheels you can add whatever ingredients you like. I prefer veggies but you can add your favorite choice of meat too. I found them to be a perfect addition to a party/gathering menu when it comes to choosing what appetizers to serve.
These don’t take much prep time and with a pre-made organic croissant dough such as the one by Immaculate Baking, the process of making these pinwheels cannot be much simpler.
For this recipe, I used one of their pre-made croissant dough. Particularly because they do not add any artificial preservatives and chemicals, which is why I would recommend using them when you do not have time to make the dough at home. You can also use homemade pizza dough instead of croissant dough.
