Pizza Stuffed Crescent Rolls

Today I am sharing these AMAZING Pizza Stuffed Crescent Rolls! These are so simple to make and they don’t last long once they are out of the oven. The warm mozzarella melts in your mouth with a hint of spice from the pepperoni. An easy and quick way to make a pizza with the light and flakey crescent roll. The handheld pizza is sure to please any kiddo that is on the go or just enjoying an after school snack.

I love making these for my kids if they need a weekend snack or even if it is game night. My daughter loves to help in the kitchen and these are the perfect snack for her to make along side of me. Her cute little hands melt my heart as she is a preparing them on the cookie sheet for the oven. She loves to watch the crescent rolls bloom in the oven as they are baking.

These are great for any age! My boys love to come home from school and pop open a tube of crescent rolls and make these while unwinding from their long day. I often catch myself listening in to their conversation while they are in the kitchen together waiting for them to bake. Lots of laughter and talking but once that oven beeps it is silent from them eating these right out of the oven. haha. These Pizza Stuffed Crescent Rolls are so easy to make and are seriously addicting. Warm, flakey crescent rolls filled with gooey mozzarella cheese and pepperoni!

  • Unroll crescent rolls onto a baking sheet lined with a silicon baking mat. Separate into triangles.

  • Roll the wide end to the smaller tip of the crescent making sure to tuck in the corners so the cheese doesn’t ooze out.
  • Brush melted butter onto crescent rolls.
  • Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and garlic powder if desired.
  • Bake for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve warm with marinara sauce for dipping.

Can You Use Other Types of Cheese?

Yes! I would recommend using mozzarella cheese sticks for best results and the perfect amount of cheese but I totally understand experimenting with other cheeses. Cheddar cheese or grated cheese also works for this snack.

  • Sausage
