    Starting with long side of 1 rectangle, roll dough tightly into 6 1/4-inch roll; press seam to seal. Repeat with remaining dough rectangles.
  • 3
    Spray thin serrated knife with cooking spray. Cut each roll into 16 slices. On ungreased large cookie sheet, place 32 slices about 1/2 inch apart. Place remaining 32 slices on second ungreased large cookie sheet.
  • 4
    Bake 1 cookie sheet at a time 8 to 9 minutes or until slices are light golden brown.
  • 5
    Top baked slices using all 8 toppings and making 8 appetizers of each, or choose your favorite topping options and make as many of each as you’d like. All toppings are quick to assemble, taking only about 4 to 8 minutes to make 8 appetizers.
