Pizza Crescent Ring

If you are like us, this time of year is all about party food! With the end of football season comes get togethers centered around the all important playoffs and eventually the super bowl. Finding easy recipes that feed a crowd can be difficult (thank heavens for Pinterest!), but there are some tried and true food that will always be in the mix. Pizza comes in MANY forms. For instance, check out these super awesome pizza-themed recipes I’ve shared in the past:

But honestly, one of my favorite things is this super simple Pizza Crescent Ring.

Warning: Making crescent ring recipes is addicting. You’ll start with this pizza crescent ring, and next thing you know you’ll be making EVERYTHING into a crescent ring. Trust me on this.

Ingredients:

4oz pepperoni slices
1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 ½ cups pizza sauce
2 cans Pillsbury crescent rolls
Optional: You can add other meat, like sausage or bacon.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375. While oven is preheating, lay out the crescent rolls in rectangles (see photos) in a circle, leaving the center open. Do not separate rolls into triangles. Some rolls will overlap.

Using photos as a guide, add pizza sauce, cheeses, and pepperonis in layers onto the crescent ring. Leave a little space in the center for wrapping the rolls around. If you decide to add extra meats like sausage, you might want to combine the cheese, sauce, and meats together in a bowl and spoon the mixture onto the crescent roll ring.

After you’ve added your toppings, fold the crescent rolls over to the middle, tucking in so they don’t come apart while expanding. It’s okay if there are gaps in the ring itself, the mixture is thick and it won’t leak out.

Bake for about 20 minutes (I think we baked ours a few minutes too long, so watch it once it gets past 15 minutes).

Allow to cool a little before slicing. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.

How gorgeous is that?! This is such a great party food, as you can slice it up and get about 16 servings out of it. Bake up a few different ones with various fillings, and you’re in business!

I also like to serve this with ranch dressing for those who are so inclined. Obviously it’s a wonderful snack for a crowd, but it’s also good for family dinners!

My mom always made stromboli for us growing up, which is very similar to this – pizza toppings wrapped in dough. But this way is a little easier as the dough is handy in the fridge!
