Servings 8 large Pinwheels


  • 1 Package of Pillsbury Pizza Dough
  • 1 Roasted Chicken
  • 1 Package of Mac & Cheese Cooked
  • 1 Bottle of Ranch Dressing
  • 1 Package of your Favorite Cheese
  • 1 Tsp of Parsley
  • Optional Topping: Chorizo Adds Big Flavor


  • Layout Pizza Dough on a cookie sheet. Do not oil or butter the cookie sheet as the pizza dough as enough butter in it to make sure it will not stick. Spread the dough out to the edges of the cookie sheet if possible. The first layer is the ranch dressing, be sure to use enough as it brings great flavor to the pizza. Next goes the mac & cheese, followed by the roasted chicken, parsley, cheese, and chorizo.
  • Roll up the pizza dough lengthwise so that the pinwheels aren't too big. Into refrigerator or freezer to set up so slicing the pinwheels is easy.
  • Place on cookie sheet and bake at 400 for 18 to 20 minutes.
  • Serve with marinara sauce topped with chopped parsley for color.
