A sheet of Pillsbury crescent dough and a few spicy ingredients make this recipe a snap to pull together for a weekday dinner or afternoon snack.
I’ve seen (and tasted) a version of this recipe posted elsewhere using a traditional bread dough loaf. I found the dough to be dense and heavy… Frankly, the “dough to filling” ratio was a bit overwhelming.
Here, I have used Pillsbury crescent roll sheets to bundle up the tasty Italian ingredients to make this undeniably delicious roll. I just love the way the traditional filling sits within the light and flaky crust. This Finger-Licking Pizza Roll recipe is incredibly hard to resist!
Finger-Licking Pizza Rolls
1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheets
1/2 6 oz. package pepperoni rounds
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup pizza sauce
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Lightly flour counter surface. Unroll dough. With a rolling pin, flatten dough evenly to stretch dough to 13×9″ rectangle. Spread pizza sauce over surface. Layer on pepperoni, overlapping rows. Sprinkle evenly with mozzarella cheese.
Starting with one short side, roll up rectangle; press edge to seal. Place cut side down on cookie sheet.
Bake 25-35 minutes or until roll is dark golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes. Slice roll into 3/4″ slices. Serve warm with leftover warm pizza sauce for dipping.
