Yes, that says appe-teezer. That's because if you truly make this an appetizer, it is a tease! I made these for a small get together at my house, then I had to make more - for dinner. The kids loved them. So simple, but..... there are a few things to make it easier.
This is what I will start calling my Pinterest project. I spend time looking at crafts and recipes and all kinds of fun stuff - it's time to actually start trying it! Here we go!
4 Simple ingredients:crescent rolls (I usually buy store brand, but these were on sale and I had coupons....)
Pizza sauce - left over from making pizza 2 weeks ago
string mozzarella cheese
Roll out the crescents into triangles. Spread on sauce. After actually making these and eating them, and making them again, I left out the sauce and put it on the side for dipping. Much better - leave the sauce out - too messy.
Cut the string cheese in half
Put the string cheese at the largest part of the triangle
Add pepperoni - we like a lot of pepperoni, but add a little at a time
I started rolling.....
And added more pepperoni
Forgot to take more photos - hard to roll messy pizza rolls and take photos.
Hint 1: Leave off the sauce. Use it for dipping
Hint 2: PULL and roll. If you dont pull, the crescent fluffs and you end up with a lot of roll and not much pepperoni.
Bake 325 degrees about 10 minutes.
Hint 3: Serve hot. I made these for an event and they were cold by the time I got around to eating (with company). They were ok, but much better fresh from the oven.
Hint 4: Do not over bake. Crescents are sensitive anyhow, if you over bake, you loose cheese - not cool when you are making pizza.
