Easy Crescent Pizza Bake – Delicious and Kid Friendly

Easy Crescent Pizza Bake

This Easy Crescent Pizza Bake is a great recipe for anything from a quick kid friendly dinner to a delicious party appetizer. Buttery and flaky crescent dough is snuggly wrapped around pizza sauce, mozzarella and pepperoni. The whole thing is then topped in seasoned garlic butter and then baked until golden brown. Save this recipe as it will be a favorite for a long time!

Here are some tips for making my Easy Crescent Pizza Bake:

  • If you can find the sheets of crescent dough (not precut for rolls), grab those! It makes recipes like this just a little easier because you don’t have any seams to pinch together.
  • Go ahead and add any of your other favorite pizza toppings into this bake. Sausage, peppers, onions and spinach are all great options. Just be sure to cook any meats ahead of time and you may also want to cook your veggies a little depending on your preference.
  • If you like things extra saucy, serve a little warm pizza sauce on the side for dipping!

These are the ingredients that you will need for this kid friendly recipe:

  • Crescent dough
  • Pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Pepperonis
  • Butter
  • Garlic powder
  • Italian seasoning
