More About This Recipe
  • Are you craving pizza, but don’t want to spend the money on delivery? These easy-to-make, handheld pepperoni rolls are ready to eat in 30 minutes. One can of Pillsbury crescent rolls makes 8 servings, which means you can share if you want (but you don’t have to). These crescent dough pizza roll-ups are very similar to Italian Stromboli, which is a type of turnover filled with various cheeses, cold cuts or vegetables. While this recipe calls for mozzarella cheese and pepperoni, you can easily customize your meat and cheese selections to your own tastes. Speaking of sharing, if you’re bringing these delicious appetizers to a party, you can roll up the crescents and store covered in the fridge for up to two hours ahead of time. They are best served just after baking. Looking for more crescent pizza ideas? We’ve got you covered.
