Creating these super cheesy and delicious cheeseburger pinwheels is quick and easy. They incorporate all the mouthwatering flavors of a scrumptious cheeseburger, presented in adorable pinwheel shapes that are ideal for gatherings, children's meals or simply for a delightful snack.


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 8-ounce block cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 16-ounce ball raw pizza dough (see notes)


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Spritz a stainless steel skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Cook ground beef and break up into little pieces with spatula.
  3. Add onion and garlic to skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes more. You want the onion to be slightly softened but still have some crunch to it.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. Add ketchup and mustard, then stir and taste. Adjust seasonings however desired. Remove from heat.
  5. Roll out pizza dough into a very thin, large rectangle. Spread a generous amount of cheese on the dough, then top with beef mixture. 
  6. Starting with the long end, roll up dough into a log. Gently stretch and shape the log until it is even thickness throughout. Use a large serrated bread knife to slice into about 20 pinwheels. Transfer to prepared baking sheet.
  7. Sprinkle pinwheels with remaining cheese and bake 18-20 minutes or until dough is cooked, lightly golden, and cheese is melted.


I buy premade pizza dough packaged by the pound at my regular grocery store. Check to see if yours does the same thing!
