Posts Tagged ‘Mozzarella cheese’

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.
