Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper; spray generously with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Unroll dough; separate into 8 triangles. With pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut each triangle in half lengthwise to make 16 triangles. On cookie sheet, place crescent triangles lengthwise in long row, pointing same direction, with edges overlapping slightly on cookie sheet. Press overlapping edges together to help seal, but leave triangle points free.
  • 3
    Spread pizza sauce in 2 1/2-inch wide strip lengthwise on widest part of dough, leaving 1/2-inch edge. Sprinkle half the cheese over sauce. Place pepperoni slices on top, and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • 4
    Fold over tips of dough to enclose filling; pinch ends of dough on edge to attach. Gently picking up top end of dough, curve one end of strip to form top of cane. Brush dough with melted butter; sprinkle Italian seasoning over top.
  • 5
    Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet. Use parchment paper to help slide crescent to serving platter. Serve warm.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

    Lining your cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper makes it easy to curve the dough for the candy cane shape and makes for quick cleanup.
  • tip 2
    Try Italian 6-cheese blend in place of mozzarella for a different flavor twist.
  • tip 3
    Serve this pizza candy cane crescent snack with extra pizza sauce for dipping, if desired.
  • tip 4
    For a pretty presentation, after cooling 5 minutes on cookie sheet, use spatula to carefully help slide crescent to serving platter, loosening edges with spatula first, if needed. Serve warm.
