Posts Tagged ‘Crescent Rolls’

I love finding new ways to make an old favorite.  This recipe remakes pizza, which is a huge favorite in my house, using flaky crescent roll dough.  They are great plain, but even better dipped in a little pizza sauce on the side.  I found these at Two In The Kitchen so head on over there to see their version.

These Crescent Pizza Triangles are perfect as a party food, but they also make a great lunch as well.  Versatility is the name of the game here since you can adapt the recipe to use your favorite pizza toppings.  I hope you give these a try.

Crescent Pizza Triangles

2 cans crescent rolls

1/4 cup pizza sauce plus more for dipping

1/2 lb. ground beef

1/2 lb. Italian sausage

1/4 cup chopped sweet pepper

1/4 cup finely chopped onions

8 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese

1 egg, beaten

2 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese (I use the green can.)

1 tsp. dried oregano


In a large skillet over medium high heat, cook the beef, sausage, onion and pepper until the meat is cooked through and the veggies are soft.  Allow the mixture to cool for 15-20 minutes. (That is what is in the zip top bag in the photo. I had precooked that and had it in my freezer.)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray.  Press out one of the tubes of crescent rolls to approximately 10×15 inches.  Pinch the perforations together to seal.

Spread a layer of pizza sauce, then the meat mixture, then the cheese.


Press out the remaining dough on top and seal the edges by pressing them together.  Brush the crust with the beaten egg.  Sprinkle the parmesan and oregano over the crust.  Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. 

Cool for a few minutes then slice into triangles and enjoy!  Don’t forget to use a little extra pizza sauce for dipping.

I am always on the hunt for new supper ideas that we will like.  I am a little more adventurous than C is when it comes to trying new things, but he does pretty well if I don’t go crazy.  One thing that holds me back severely is that I am very very allergic to chicken and turkey.  Those are two meats that you will never find on my blog because I can’t even touch them without getting a reaction, let alone eat any.  It definitely limits my options.

That means I am thrilled when I find a new ground beef recipe that looks promising.  This recipe did more than look promising; it was delicious!  I served these with chopped fresh veggies and oven baked fries on the side and it also made enough for lunches for the next two days.  This is definitely a keeper!

Another great thing about it is that it is totally customizable to your burger preferences.  Give this a try!

1 lb. hamburger

1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 tsp. minced onion

2-3 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled

3 can crescent rolls


Cook the ground beef over medium heat until there is no pink left.  Add the minced onion, bacon, and cheese; stir to combine and set aside.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a cookie sheet.  Unroll the crescent rolls into individual triangles.  Place about 1 tablespoon of the meat mixture onto the big end of the roll.  Roll the dough toward the small end and tuck the ends under to make a package.


Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.  Serve warm with ketchup or you favorite dipping sauce.
