CANNED CRESCENT DOUGH The crescent rolls make this fast to make. This can also be made with real pizza dough (but will taste more like a calzone).

FILLINGS We added some spicy pepperoni but you can add your favorite toppings. If they have a lot of moisture (like mushrooms or pineapple) be sure to cook them first or squeeze them dry.

CHEESE String cheese keeps it extra easy and doesn’t melt out of the pockets as easily as shredded cheese.

SAUCE Warm pizza sauce is great for dipping. You can add it inside if you’d like but we prefer using it for dipping.

  1. Made this twice with the help of my grand babies. They loved helping and it tastes great too! Moms and Dads were excited about how easy they were to make. The second time we used the “Grands’ Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and they turned out a little bigger and didn’t change the flavor at all. We rolled them in the parmesan cheese vs sprinkled. That seemed to coat them better. Thank you!

  2. Delicious-sounding ingredients. Unfortunately my oven is off by 50-75°. I haven’t gotten it down to a science. It looked to by just shy of 400° on my oven thermometer. When it was at 50° from 375°, it read 350°. So many things used with flour and yeast in my oven dry out on the bottoms. When I pull the things out it is burnt on the bottom and I’m discouraged! Wish it worked instead of charring on the bottom.
