Fill Pillsbury™ Crescents with pepperoni to make these cheesy sandwiches that are ready in 25 minutes—perfect for dinner.


  • 1 can (235 g) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescents (8 count)
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced pepperoni (24 slices)
  • 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat oven to 375°F (190°C). Unroll dough onto cookie sheet; separate into 4 rectangles (2 triangles each). Press each rectangle to form a 6x4-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon pizza sauce on half of each rectangle to within 1 inch of edge. Sprinkle each with 3 tablespoons cheese; top with 6 slices pepperoni. Fold dough from the top over filling; firmly press edges with fork to seal. Sprinkle each rectangle with 1/4 teaspoon grated cheese. With fork, prick top of each to allow steam to escape.
  3. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until deep golden brown. Serve warm.
