  • Unroll crescents onto work surface. Top each piece of dough with shredded cheese and a few slices of pepperoni. Sprinkle on a bit more cheese, and roll into crescent shape. Place pizza "moons" on a baking sheet.

  • Bake until crescents are golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Cook's Note

Any type of cheese can be used. Try sausage or chicken in place of the pepperoni.

I like to make this with halved string cheese sticks (one half inside each crescent "moon") instead of shredded cheese. I usually double the recipe and serve it with homemade pizza sauce to dip. The husband and kids LOVE this dish. I serve this with a huge veggie platter with homemade light ranch dressing for a quick "dipper" supper. Read More

These were alright but either I did something wrong or there was WAY too much cheese for the amount of crescent roll! Still good but a little too cheesy for me. Read More

I have made a similar recipe "Pizza Pinwheels" from Pilsbury website. That recipe adds another ingredient pizza sauce to use as a dipping sauce. My 4 year old likes helping out with making these. A quick and easy appetizer. Read More

You had great timing!! I had the dough in the fridge from being on sale last week and a small troop of men coming over after a hockey game lol. Big hit very simple straight forward and tasty shortcut for a fun snack. I think kids would enjoy making these with an adult which is a great way to sneak in family time too. I served with some garlic mayo and pizza sauce for dipping. Thanks again! Read More

Great snack. I did add pizza sauce that I made with tomato sauce and some seasoning. It was a lil difficult to keep the ingredients inside while rolling them up and after it baked I thought it needed more of the taste inside. Maybe I will follow the directions and not put the sauce inside just use it for dipping. I also cut the pepperoni up to make it easier to put them inside. I topped them with some cheese half way thru the baking process. Thank you! Read More

These were great! I made them last night simple and delicious. I just wish there was a sauce to go along with it. I found one however called Easy Pizza Sauce III. It's great to go with these delicious Pizza Moons! Read More
