Ingredients

Cornmeal, if desired
2
cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated seamless dough sheet
1
package (32 oz) cocktail-sized smoked link sausages (I used the cheese-filled variety)
1
egg beaten with a splash of water for egg wash
1/2
cup pizza sauce
1
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
Pepperoni or any other toppings, as desired

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 8-inch pizza pan with cooking spray, or sprinkle with cornmeal.
  • 2 Unroll 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ Crescent Recipe Creations™ refrigerated seamless dough sheet, and slice lengthwise into 8 strips. Then slice each strip into 4 widthwise. Now make diagonal slices to form small triangle-shaped pieces of dough. They don't have to be perfect!
  • 3 Using 1 package (32 oz) cocktail-sized smoked link sausages, roll up a sausage inside each piece of dough, starting at the widest end, making mini crescent dogs. Refrigerate while you prepare the pizza.
  • 4 Unroll another can of crescent dough sheet to fit the pizza pan; trim away edges to fit. Brush edges of pizza crust with egg wash, made with 1 egg beaten with a splash of water.
  • 5 Firmly press all of the mini crescent dogs onto the egg-washed edges, all the way around the pizza crust. Brush mini crescent dogs with more of the egg wash.
  • 6 Fill center of pizza with 1/2 cup pizza sauce, 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz) and pepperoni or your other favorite toppings.
  • 7 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until dough is golden and toppings are gooey!

Expert Tips

Instead of the dough sheets, you can use 2 cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls, but press perforations together to seal.

Add a slice of jalapeño and/or a squirt of mustard into the crescent dog crust for added kick!
