Pizza Roll-Ups

Since getting this recipe from our 4-H club, it's been a regular after-school snack. We like to dunk these bite-sized pizza treats, made with refrigerated crescent rolls, in spaghetti sauce. —Donna Klettke, Wheatland, Missouri

    I needed something easy and fast because I was having three of my teenage grandson's over for a visit and shopping. I made these (and doubled the recipe) and they disappeared in an instant, the boys loved them and they were super easy to make and the one I got was delicious..

    The kids liked these a lot. I made my own crescent dough and used jarred spaghetti sauce for the tomato sauce.

    This idea is absolutely genius.I'm 26, and I constantly struggle with meal planning. I don't have kids, so it's only my boyfriend and I in the house and there are always just too many leftovers junking up the fridge. We just can't eat all the food most recipes make before it goes bad!These are a great call for people in my shoes for a few reasons: namely, they please the boyfriend. We alternate between bento box lunches (Mon/Wed/Fri) and mason jar salads (Tue/Thurs). But I can't be the only one who gets the sneaking suspicion that the guys ditch their salad lunches and just get fast food... these are a super easy pack into the bento box that encourages portion control while still providing flexability. I added a dash or two of Tony Chachere's (never heard of it? You're really missing out) along with the oregano, and even though I find that to my taste, the boyfriend can still throw on a slice or two of pepperoni and top it with more cheese so he's happy! These easily keep for five days, so he gets a treat Mon/Wed/Fri and that encourages him to eat his more vegetable-esque lunches on the in between. Not only that but they are super quick and easy, and most items were already in my pantry.Oh, and definitely don't try to substitute the crescent dough for some other kind. Not worth it, trust me. It's just not as good!

    Just made these last night. My boys LOVE them! They are so simple and they are easy to switch up! Try taco filling! I've even done left over spaghetti and sauce inside them.

    Staying true to the recipe above...Pros: I had all the ingredients on hand, only 1/2lb Hamburger that fed our family of 4! Cost effective!Con: A messy mess. There was no good way to cut the dough. Kinda bland but the kids liked it. They said they would eat it again.I may try the pizza edition.

    I changed the tomato sauce to pizza sauce and made my own crescent roll dough. My toddler loves them! So portable and yummy hot or cold.

    These were a pain to make, the dough split, and they burned on the bottom after being in the oven for about 7 minutes. Kids loved them.
