This is a favorite after school snack at my house. I got the recipe of the family fun website.

These were really good, and kids loved them. They would make a good party appetizer too, for the pizza lovers. I added a little garlic powder and italian seasoning to the sauce before rolling up, otherwise made as directed. Mine weren't as pretty as the pictures, they were hard to cut and keep their round shape once the dough gets warm. Next time I'll put the roll in the fridge for a while to harden back up before trying to slice. But they were delicious. The crescent dough really expands so use plenty of cheese - I'll use more next time. Thanks for a great idea!
