Pepperoni Pizza Crescent Rolls
I am a sucker for pizza. No seriously, I’m a HUGE sucker for anything involving a crust, sauce and cheese. I’m a bit of a snob though. Pizza has to be JUST right or else it falls flat. These pepperoni pizza crescent rolls? They hit the spot! The “crust” is made from a buttery crescent roll giving them a flavor that just can’t be found anywhere else! Use jarred sauce or the pizza sauce recipe below and you’ve got a winner! They’re super easy (the kids can help make them!), freeze well (can you say once a month cooking) and VERY budget friendly! Plus they’re versatile enough to use as lunch, dinner or a snack!
You Will Need:
- (1) can of Crescent Rolls – any brand is fine
- (24) Pepperoni Slices – (don’t forget that you can pick up Hormel at the Dollar Tree cheap anytime you have a coupon)
- (2) Mozzarella String Cheese
- (1) Can of Tomato Paste, 6oz
- 4 oz
- 2 tsp Sugar
- 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
- 1/2 tbsp Onion Powder
- 1 tbsp Basil
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and roll out crescents until they’re flat.
While the oven is heating, combine tomato paste, water, onion powder, garlic powder, sugar and basil in a small saucepan.
Stir well and cook over medium heat until it’s warm throughout and mixed well. It won’t hurt to let it cook a bit, just be careful that it doesn’t burn.
Cut each string cheese in quarters (4 pieces). I find it’s easiest to do this by cutting each piece in half lengthwise then cutting each piece again in half width wise.
Spread a small amount of sauce on each crescent roll making sure not to get it over the edges.
Layer (3) pieces of pepperoni on top of the sauce, overlapping them so that they fit without overhang.
At the top of each piece, lay a piece of the mozzarella cheese that you cut.
Starting at the wide end, roll each crescent up and place on a cookie sheet, seam side down.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
YUM! To freeze these bad boys, just let cool completely, wrap each roll in plastic wrap then place inside of a sealed Ziploc bag. When ready to fix, grab and microwave 2-3 minutes or until warm.
