Cook Time
  • 111 ounce can refrigerated Italian or French bread dough
  • 2tablespoons melted butter
  • 2teaspoons fresh oreganochopped or 2/3 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2pound spicy Italian sausage meatcooked, crumbled and drained well
  • 1/2cup shredded Parmesan or Asiago cheese
  • 1/4cup shredded Mozzarella
  • Cooking spray
  • Flour for rolling dough
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 14” x 10” baking sheet with cooking oil.
  2. Find the seam that runs lengthwise on the dough. Carefully unroll dough into a rectangular shape and place on a lightly floured surface. Roll out to approximately 13” x 8” and brush the surface with melted butter, leaving a ½” seam allowance on all edges.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together sausage, oregano, salt and pepper. Spread the sausage mix evenly onto the dough, leaving the ½” seam allowance.
  4. Combine the cheeses and sprinkle evenly over the sausage mixture.
  5. Starting with a long edge, roll the dough up like a cinnamon roll. Pinch the lengthwise edge into the roll to seal. Leave the ends open.
  6. Cut the 1/2” seam allowance from the open ends and discard. From one open end, cut the remaining roll across the grain into 1/2” slices, creating pinwheels. Arrange on a cooking sheet so the edges aren’t touching.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25 – 30 minutes, until lightly browned.
