Pizza Pinwheels

1 package prepared pizza crust, such as Pillsbury
1 (8-ounce) container whipped cream cheese 1⁄4 cup pizza sauce
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 350oF.


Roll pizza crust out on a large, flat surface. Spread whipped cream cheese to the edges of the crust. Do the same with pizza sauce and pepperoni. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and Italian seasoning.


Roll into a log. Wrap log in plastic wrap, and let chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Remove from refrigerator, and slice into 1⁄2-inch pieces. Lay pieces at least 2 inches apart on a nonstick baking sheet. Sprinkle more mozzarella cheese and Italian seasoning on top of each piece.


Bake about 20 minutes, until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
