Serve pizza toppings swirled in a tender crescent pastry with a dipping sauce at your next get-together. This is a great snack or appetizer. It's kind of like "bet you can't eat just one!".

I made these for my teenage daughters 16th birthday party and there were no leftovers. The kids just gobbled them up. I sprinkled the dough with garlic powder before slatering on the pizza sauce. I also topped the cheese with Italian seasoning for some added zing.

I didn't have crescent dinner rolls so I used Grands and skipped the rectangles. I flattened them into pizzas and topped with Ragu, bell peppers, salami, and cheese. Next time I'll add some basil or oregano to spice it up. This is a very quick appetizer or lunch you can whip up with ingredients you have on hand. Made for P-A-R-T-Y 2009. Thank you Nana Lee!

These were a good idea, but I had a hard time cutting them into pinwheels, so I just made them into pizza pockets. They were good, easy, and fast. I found it on Pillsbury too, but thanks for putting it on here, it's where I keep all my recipes! :)
