Pepperoni Pizza Crescent Snacks
We had a sandwich night for our Wednesday night Bible study group back in October. I served all the fixings for sandwiches but Pepperoni Pizza Crescent Snacks were also on the menu. This appetizer uses only five ingredients: refrigerated crescent rolls, pizza sauce, pepperoni slices, sliced mushrooms and mozzarella cheese That’s it. There’s enough pizza sauce left over in the jar so you can dip the snacks into it, too. That’s an excellent way to serve this tasty finger food.
These creative and easy snacks are really terrific for tailgating parties, potlucks and easy weekend snacks for your family. They’re like mini-pizzas but so much quicker to toss together than regular pizza. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy simple finger foods that taste great?
I do recommend that you purchase real pizza sauce for the recipe rather than trying to substitute marinara or spaghetti sauce which is a lot thinner. Spaghetti sauce will drain out of the crescents too easily and not hold its shape like the thicker pizza sauce does. It also has a richer flavor than most store bought spaghetti sauces.
Pepperoni Pizza Crescent Snacks is a delightful Gooseberry Patch recipe that’s perfect for New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day celebrations. It’s also outrageously good for the Super Bowl and other parties where appetizers are served. Enjoy.
