Serve these super easy, cheesy crescent pizza rollups for football parties, holiday appetizers, and weeknight meals… just add a salad! They’re fun to make and kids will love them!
It’s been a different summer for us this year. Austin is a very outdoorsy city, and with a new baby, that presents some challenges. The days we would have been swimming the springs and slurping cold cocktails were replaced with just trying to keep cool indoors and ride out the 100+ degree afternoons. With working air conditioning, stashes of freezer pops and a cuddly baby, that wasn’t the worst fate. But, we love to get out and have fun. So, now, as the weather is cooling and everyone’s emerging from their climate controlled homes, there are more chances for long breezy walks, patio lounging and get-togethers with friends!
For my husband and I, that means a little more sanity. A little more getting back the social butterflies we are. And a big, warm (well, hopefully not too warm) welcome to the fall season. For the blog, that means more fun autumn appetizers. And these doughy, cheesy crescent pizza rollups are an absolutely delicious new fave.
… And you hardly need a recipe for them!
Layers of flaky, buttery pastry envelope creamy mozzarella string cheese and rounds of salty pepperoni. You can use your own favorite pizza toppings, though I found this classic combo the most quick and easy. Just tuck ’em all together into a tasty bundle, bake for 12 minutes, and you have the perfect party appetizer full of gooey pizza goodness. They are SO delicious dipped in bubbly hot marinara sauce.
You can also serve these rollups for a super simple weeknight meal – just toss together a quick salad for the side, and dinner is done. Kids will love them!
Pepperoni Pizza Crescent Rollups
- 1 8 oz. can refrigerated crescent rolls
- 32 slices pepperoni
- 4 pieces mozzarella string cheese, cut in half
- Garlic powder, for sprinkling
- Italian seasoning, for sprinkling
- Marinara sauce, for dipping
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Unroll crescent rolls on a lightly floured surface; cut into triangles. Top the widest end of each triangle with 4 pieces pepperoni, then a piece of string cheese. Roll up and tuck corners in to keep cheese from oozing out. Place on a baking sheet.
- Lightly sprinkle tops with garlic powder. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Serve warm with marinara sauce for dipping.
This is so neat! Perfect for a party as well.
It sounds like you have made the most of your hot hot Summer! Plus there have been a lot for you to adjust to, so I reckon you’ve done well :D And all these delicious recipes you put up, loving that you actually have a dip for these rolls – clever :D x
oh boy! My little boys and of course my husband are going to love these rollups. So easy yet so tasty and perfect for weeknight dinner
I wish we had refrigerated bread like you do in the states. All bread here comes from the bakery or the oven at home. I want to have these! :)
These roll ups look absolutely fantastic!!! I can’t even stand how delicious they look.
I love pizza anything and these little babies look sooo good! I’ll switch the pepperoni for some tomato sauce, so that they’ll resemble my favorite kind of pizza: margherita.
I am thanking the stars above that fall is finally here. I miss running outdoors without dying. These rollups look amazing. Hello, football appetizer.
I’m feelin ya! It’s almost time to come out of our summer hibernation here in Phoenix ;) my kiddos would love these in their lunch boxes!
Hurray for getting back into the groove of things, and what perfect timing now that the weather is actually tolerable! Quick, easy snacks like these are essential during football season!
Love this idea — I do something similar using olive oil, basil and parm. Crescent rolls make a great canvas!
These are always a hit with our kids! So easy and so good!
What a fun way to do pizza. And yes, my kids would gobble these up!!
I am in love! These rollups are such a great idea for any night, but I can’t wait to whip them up this Sunday while we watch football. The look absolutely perfect. I can’t pin them fast enough ;)
These are so fun. I’ll definitely be making them for the next potluck I’m going to. I know they’ll be a hit.
These are SO fun for fall. I hope you three have fun getting out and about!
