Yield: 8


1-8 ounce can of Pillsbury Crescent rolls

24 slices of pepperoni

½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Separate dough into 8 triangles; pat out each triangle slightly. Brush a small amount of pasta or pizza sauce on the dough. Place 3 slices of pepperoni overlapping one another on each triangle. Top each triangle with approximately 1 tablespoon for mozzarella cheese. Roll up each triangle starting at the shortest side of the triangle and roll up to the point. Place rolls down side on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet and serve warm with pasta or pizza sauce.
