Easy Crescent Roll Pepperoni Pizza Snacks

Don’t you just love crescent rolls? You can make so many recipes with them. And let’s not forget how buttery and delicious they are all by themselves.

For these pepperoni pizza snacks, you simply unroll the dough and press each triangle into the bottom of a muffin pan. This will make a tender and flaky crust perfect to hold our yummy pizza fillings.

A muffin tin with crescent rolls, pizza sauce, next to a cup of shredded cheese

Spoon a little (or a lot) of pizza sauce into each crescent lined muffin tin. We used about one tablespoon for each serving.

We used a standard sized muffin tin like this one for this recipe. You could also tear the crescent dough into smaller portions and use a mini muffin tin. Tiny little baby pepperoni pizza snacks!
