Italian Appetisers

Italian Pizzette: Mom’s Italian Pinwheels

Mom’s Italian Pinwheels. In Italy called pizzette.

We attended our first ‘neighborhood’ party this evening, and had a lot of fun meeting neighbors.

I was requested to bring a side dish, appetizer, or dessert, and since I’m still riding the cookie high from Christmas, I went with an appetizer.

And an easy one, to boot!


SERVING: Makes 24 appetizers

  • 1/2 cup sliced Italian Salami, finely chopped
