How to Make Pizza Crescent Rolls
Instead of making these into individual rolls, we're going to shape the crescent roll triangles into a circle. Then add the cheese followed by the pepperoni slices.
Brush with olive oil and your favorite seasonings before baking in a preheated 350°F oven until golden brown.
Pepperoni Pizza Cresent Rolls
My family loves pepperoni, but if one of your family members doesn't, you can easily replace the pepperoni with your favorite pizza toppings.
Crumbled Italian sausage would be delicious wrapped up in the crescent rolls. You could also add mushrooms, green or red peppers to add a different flavor as well. Check out my other pizza casserole recipes with crescent rolls for a variation of the same recipe.

Step 1 | Prepare the Crescent Rolls
- On a baking sheet that's been sprayed with non-stick baking spray, place the crescent roll triangles into a circle along the edges of the pan with the points facing outwards.

- Fold up the outer edges of the crescent rings into the center being careful to tuck the ends under.
