Pizza Crescent Rolls are a great snack when you need something quick!
Crescent Rolls make these little bundles almost effortless. Fill them with cheese and pepperoni (or your favorite pizza toppings) and bake.
A Quick Snack
- It needs just a few ingredients
- Toppings (or fillings!) can be adjusted based on your tastes
- The recipe comes together quickly
- Each crescent roll comes out tender, flaky, and packed with cheesy pizza goodness
Make a build-your-own pizza bar and set out bowls of favorite add-ins and toppings and let everyone make their own! Such a fun party activity!
CANNED CRESCENT DOUGH The crescent rolls make this fast to make. This can also be made with real pizza dough (but will taste more like a calzone).
FILLINGS We added some spicy pepperoni but you can add your favorite toppings. If they have a lot of moisture (like mushrooms or pineapple) be sure to cook them first or squeeze them dry.
CHEESE String cheese keeps it extra easy and doesn’t melt out of the pockets as easily as shredded cheese.
SAUCE Warm pizza sauce is great for dipping. You can add it inside if you’d like but we prefer using it for dipping.
