  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray, or line with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    Unroll dough on cookie sheet. Press into 13x8-inch rectangle; if using crescent rolls, firmly press perforations to seal. Spread pizza sauce in 3 1/2-inch-wide strip lengthwise down center of dough all the way to ends. Layer half the pepperoni slices and cheese over sauce; repeat.
  • 3
    Make cuts 1 inch apart on each side of rectangle just to edge of filling. Alternating from side to side, fold cut strips of dough at an angle halfway across filling, slightly overlapping ends.
  • 4
    Bake 16 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown. Serve with additional pizza sauce, if desired.

Expert Tips

  • For additional cheesy flavor, sprinkle top of crescent dough with 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese before baking.
  • No pizza sauce? Use marinara sauce instead.
