Pepperoni Pinwheels

Tomorrow John is having a potluck at work and I volunteered to make pepperoni pinwheels (essentially a pepperoni bread only bite sized). I found this recipe on Pillsbury's website so naturally it is a very simple but tasty recipe. Enjoy!

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (2 oz)
1/2 cup sliced pepperoni, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1 egg yolk
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated flaky dough sheet
1 egg white, beaten

1- Heat oven to 375°F. In small bowl, mix cheese, pepperoni, oregano and egg yolk.
2. If using crescent rolls: Unroll dough; separate dough into 4 rectangles. Firmly press perforations to seal. If using dough sheet: Unroll dough; cut into 4 rectangles.
3. Spread each rectangle with about 3 tablespoons pepperoni mixture. Starting at shortest side, roll up each rectangle; pinch edges to seal. Cut each roll into 6 slices. Place, cut side down, 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush with beaten egg white.
4. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Optional: Serve with warm sauce for dipping
