How to Make These Easy Pepperoni Crescent Rolls

To create these little gems, you only need a large baking sheet and three ingredients!

Ingredients for Easy Pepperoni Crescent Rolls on Kitchen Counter

Ingredients:

  • Can of Crescent Rolls
  • Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
  • Sliced Pepperoni

Quick Tip: One can of store-bought dough usually doesn’t do it for our family! We typically double (or triple…ahem) this recipe.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step #1 – Open your can(s) of Crescent Rolls – laying the dough out flat on our favorite non-stick silicone baking mats.

Don’t own a set of these mats yet?

Try a foil-lined or parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Don’t forget the nonstick cooking spray!

Sometimes I use individual triangles of crescent roll dough, but other times I press the seam of two triangles together to make a square.

Quick Tip: To me personally, the squares can feel like a bit too much dough. So while hubby and the kids don’t mind the squares, I prefer the triangles. I like to call it my “low-carb” option. ha!

  • Step #2 – On top of the dough, lay your desired amount of pepperoni slices and a piece of string cheese. Want to also add cheddar cheese? Go for it!

These easy pizza crescent rolls are delicious served with a side of marinara pasta sauce or warm pizza sauce.

Either eat these pepperoni rolls straight from the baking sheet or off of a paper plate.

You don’t want to ruin this quick-fix meal by creating unnecessary chores for yourself. ūüėČ
