Let me share with you how easy these are to make. These are so easy you could make them with your eyes closed. I don’t recommend it but it’s an option, It’s actually the exact same as the ham and cheese pinwheels but change the cheese and meat.

Lay a tortilla out on a flat surface. Hopefully you’ve already set the cream cheese out to soften. If you didn’t, all is not lost. Take it out and go do a sandwich making station while it softens. I have found that cream cheese softens faster if you take it out of the box and lay it on the counter.

After the cream cheese has softened and you put your sandwiches in the freezer, come back to your pinwheels. Spread the cream cheese over the whole tortilla. Place a layer of cheese on top of the cream cheese. Cover those layers with mini pepperoni. Roll the tortilla and slice into individual slices. If freezing, slice in half, roll in plastic wrap and place all logs in a freezer bag.
