Around here, Friday night is pizza night. It’s been going on for years. I’ve tried talking my family into enjoying something else, but they don’t want to hear about it.
A few weeks ago, life got a little crazy (don’t you just hate when that happens?) and I was left with just 30 minutes to make dinner. As tempting as it was to call the pizza place just around the corner, I decided to put a twist on the classic pizza and surprise my family. Forty minutes later there were no crumbs left. Guess that tells you how much they enjoyed it!
Open the can of crescents and unroll the dough—either on a piece of parchment paper or directly onto a baking sheet. With your fingers, pinch the crescents to create a seamless dough sheet. Using your fingers or a rolling pin, press the dough into a 14 x 10-inch rectangle. Spread 1/3 a cup of marinara sauce along the center of the dough, top with 1/2 a cup shredded cheese and finish with pepperoni slices.
