Sometimes you just have to go back to the most basic of recipes! A nice baked brie with apricot jam is fun, but sometimes (and especially for football parties), you just want simple “guy food”.
These pepperoni pizza crescent rolls fit that requirement quite well! Not only does it make a great appetizer recipe, it would even make a nice quick dinner recipe for the kids!
You can use just pasta sauce or jarred pizza sauce, but I find that those tend to be too “runny”. I like just doctoring up a can of tomato paste. You get plenty of flavor without the cooked pepperoni pizza crescent rolls being a gloppy mess! HOWEVER, when it comes time to dip them, I prefer to use my homemade pizza sauce recipe!
To make them, you will need:
- 1 can Crescent Rolls
- 24 slices pepperoni
- 2 Mozzarella String Cheese
- 1 6oz can Tomato Paste
- 4 oz Water
- 2 tsp Sugar
- 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
- 1/2 tbsp Onion Powder
- 1 tbsp Basil
