Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (7 oz)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (1 oz)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 jar (14 oz) pizza sauce
  • 2 cans (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count) or 2 cans (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Dough Sheet
  • 32 small slices pepperoni (about 2 1/2 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat waffle maker with 8-inch-square cooking surface on Medium-High heat setting. In medium bowl, mix both cheeses, basil and oregano; set aside. In 1 1/2-quart saucepan, heat pizza sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally, until hot. Place in small serving bowl.

    If using crescent rolls: Unroll both cans of dough onto work surface. Separate each crosswise, making 4 (7x6-inch) rectangles; firmly press perforations to seal. If using dough sheets: Unroll both cans of dough onto work surface. Cut each rectangle crosswise making a total of 4 (7x6-inch) rectangles.
  • 3
    Place 1 dough rectangle on bottom surface of heated waffle maker, being careful not to open up perforations. Quickly sprinkle 1 cup cheese mixture evenly on top of dough. Place 16 slices of pepperoni evenly over cheese mixture. Top with another dough rectangle; close waffle maker.
  • 4
    Bake 2 to 3 minutes or until sandwich is golden brown. With pancake turner, remove from waffle maker; place on cutting board. Cool 30 seconds before cutting. Cut into 4 square sandwiches or 8 triangular snacks. Repeat with remaining dough, cheese mixture and pepperoni. Serve warm with pizza sauce for dipping.
