Spinach & Feta Pizza Wheels
For The Filling
  • 1 small yellow onion (3/4 cup minced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 8 ounces fresh spinach (washed)
  • 8 ounces Greek feta cheese, (crumbled)
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts (toasted)
  • fresh nutmeg (to taste)
  • olive oil
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • To make the filling: Place a large sauté pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot add a drizzle of olive oil followed by the onion and garlic with a large pinch of Salt. Cook, stirring occasionally for at least 5 minutes, or until the onions are tender and translucent. 
  • Push the onions and garlic to one side and start adding the spinach. As it wilts, add more, eventually fitting it all in the pan. Cook for a minute or two, until all of the spinach is wilted. Season with salt and pepper and pour into a colander to drain and cool.
  • When the spinach mixture has cooled enough to handle, wring out all of the extra moisture and place it into a bowl. To that, add the feta and pine nuts and set aside.
  • To Assemble: Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Press out into a 10x14” rectangle. Drizzle or brush the dough with a little bit of Olive Oil then spread the Spinach filling evenly over the rectangle, leaving a 1 inch border. Grate a light, even layer of fresh Nutmeg over the surface. Working with the side closest to you, roll the pizza up, pinching the seam, and then tuck each side under.
  • Slice into 1-inch thick slices and place the pinwheels on a lightly oiled 13 x 9 baking dish or baking sheet. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until golden brown and crisp. Remove from oven and cool slightly before serving.
  • Helpful Tips:
    1. Cook spinach for about 5 minutes until spinach in completely wilted. Then strain to remove excess water.
    2. This could be made in a baking pan or a cookie sheet
