Pizza Crescents!

 
 
This is a simple little recipe really, but the results are so yummy!   It turns canned crescent rolls plus a few other ingredients into something so good!  These are great served with pasta or soup or as an appetizer.  Two of them are also a good lunch!  The kids will love these for an after school snack and they can even assemble their own.   Here is what you will need:
 
1 can crescent rolls (I used Pillsbury)
1 cup pepperoni slices
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
garlic powder
1 cup pizza sauce or marinara sauce, warmed for dipping
 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
 
Separate the rolls into triangles. Place about three pepperoni slices at the end of the widest part of the triangle. Sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese and a little of the Parmesan cheese. Then roll them up.  You need to roll them pretty tight so the cheese doesn't leak out.  Place them with the pointed end down on a cookie sheet.  I lined my cookie sheet with nonstick foil, which is the best thing ever.  If you don't use that you might want to spray your cookie sheet lightly with nonstick spray. 
 

Sprinkle the tops with a little garlic powder and little more Parmesan!  Place in a 375 degree oven and bake for 13-15 minutes or until browned.
The cheese will be ooey gooey!  Place on a serving plate with the warmed pizza sauce or marinara sauce for dipping.
 
These are so good and you can add other ingredients you might like...browned sausage or beef, olives, jalapeno, or mushrooms!  Get creative!!!
