Twirly Whirly Pizza

twirly Whirly Pizza

I don’t know what it is with the oven and me, I just love to use the oven. Before starting the new adventure of baking eggless cakes and muffins, I started simply with cooking store bought frozen French fries and pizzas. We prefer making them at home because we can control the amount of cheese and increase the quantity of veggies. I’ve not yet tried to make the dough myself. Recently I have also found a simple recipe to make home made pizza dough using whole wheat flour. Can’t wait to try that!

But before that a simple one to make at home with store bought ingredients. I saw this recipe in Parents Magazine a couple of months back. I wanted to try this for a long time now, but got a chance only today. You need just 4 ingredients to make this beautiful looking and tasty pie. Refrigerated pizza dough, sauce, any cheese of your choice (I used the part skim pizza blend cheese) and fresh baby spinach. This can also be considered a healthy pizza, because it requires only half a cup of cheese and has spinach. Not bad for a pizza, which has a bad reputation as greasy food. The process is also very easy, but a little messy at the end. The next time I bake it I would add some pepper powder/chilly flakes too. It was very bland for our taste. Other than that, this recipe is definitely a keeper. Kids will also enjoy doing this. Find the recipe here.

Ingredients:
1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza dough
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1/2 cup shredded Italian-mix cheese, divided
1 cup fresh baby spinach leaves

Stage 1:
Preheat the oven to 400F/200C for 15 minutes. Unroll the dough.

Stage 2:

Stage 3:

Stage 4:
Roll the dough starting with the short end.

  1. […] Whirly Twirly Pizza from Eggless Cooking.com- I made two of these, one with spinach and basil (I added fresh basil to the recipe) and then one with just basil. For this recipe too I did buy a Vegan cheese. To be honest I though this was good but not as good as the chili. I followed the recipe and used the roll out pizza doughs in the cans (like the crescent rolls, etc) but I always always always homemake my own pizza dough, so I’m not sure if I just didn’t like the “crust” or if it was the cheese I wasn’t super fond of. Regardless this recipe was soooo easy to make and to me is a brilliant idea! They are so fun, cute and creative! I love that you can make these with any ingredients you can think of! It’s also super kid friendly!! Seriously, what kids wouldn’t love helping make this? […]

  2. I would like to say, excellent post. Im unsure if it has been talked about, however when using Explorer I can never get the whole page to load without refreshing many times. Maybe just my CPU. Thanks

  3. I absolutely love the recipes on your site. They are sooo easy and soo tasty. For this recipe, did you cover with aluminium foil while baking the pizza or uncovered?

    Thank you very much Madhura. I did not cover it while baking.

  4. Hi Madhuram,

    You’re welcome Sangeeta.

  6. I had fun making this with my son. It was easy,fast and delicious! I did add garlic salt and onion powder to it and cooked it at 425 for 35 minutes. Please if you have other easy recipes send them my way.

    Thanks for trying it and for your feedback as well Sarah. Sent you an email.

  7. Madhu, WHich pizza dough did you use (as it probably has no eggs, if you used it!). –deepa

    I use Pillsburry’s Pizza Crust. I hear that even pizzeria’s sell the dough alone, I should try that too and make my own pizza dough too sometime.

  8. Hi Madhuram,

  9. @Siri: It’s healthy one too, with just half a cup of cheese and lot of spinach. But you might want to add something to spice it up. It was a little bland. Try adding some red chili flakes.

  10. That looks delicious. I just tried home made pizza for the first time last evening and enjoyed doing it. I doubt we can find prepared pizza dough here in Chennai, but this recipe is a keeper. Thanks very much for sharing.

  11. Gary, thank you very much for trying the pizza. I really appreciate it. Just use half a cup of sauce and 1 cup of spinach that should work out fine.

  12. As a pizza lover I wanted to try your new twist, or should I say twirl, idea. My first attempt nearly worked. I used a little too much sauce and that made the rolling and sectioning a little messy, and required a little more bake time. But the result was still tasty. I still have ingredients for another try, but I will cut back on the sauce (my favorite part too) next time. THANKS!

  13. Madhuram,
    absolutely love this version of pizza, I’m going to be trying it very soon! Love your blog too, as we are in the process of giving up eggs and I love baking 🙂 SO your recipes will be a great resource.

  14. Roma, welcome back. First pre heat the oven for 15 minutes at 400 F (or 200 C), then prepare the pizza as per the instructions and bake it for 22-25 minutes. Sometimes I also set the mode to broil for 1-2 minutes to get a charred topping. But be cautious while broiling, because it will turn black very quickly. Also leave the oven open while broiling.

    I’m also new to baking Roma. As mentioned earlier I also started with pizzas only. Best wishes for your new experiment.

    I did not give the quantity of the ingredients and other details because it was from a magazine and I did not want to get myself into any copyright issues. You can find those details in the link given. Thank you.

  15. I will definitely try this one.

    The most innovative and tempting Pizza I’ve seen in a long time. Great job Madhuram!

    One doubt, can you please tell me at what temperature I should bake the pizza (I am fairly new to baking).

    Thanks,
    Roma

  16. Hi Vaishali, I think I cannot take credit for the idea per se. But good for the first try right? Home made pizzas can’t get any easy.

  17. Nice to find another blogger interested in eggless cooking, Madhuram. And the pizza rolls look absolutely fabulous- what a great idea!

  18. Rachel and Cham, Such a neat idea right? Thanks to Parents Magazine. This is my first experience with refrigerated pizza dough and it has come out well.

  19. Bee, You’re welcome. Thank you are visitng my site as well and letting me know about “Taste of India”. I was not aware of that site earlier.

    Dhivya, Thank you for visiting my site. ya, the pizzas are very easy to make and tasty also. Just add some heat to it.
