Need a quick and easy appetizer, lunch or after school snack? Try this super easy Pepperoni Pizza Dippers recipe with flaky crescent rolls!
I can’t count the number of times my daughter has come home from school, complaining that she’s hungry. I can’t blame her because her lunch time is in the late morning— once school is out hours have passed since her last meal. We always have fruit and munchies on hand to subdue her cravings, but that doesn’t always cut it. A warm snack always does the trick to hold her over until dinner.
One of her favorite afterschool snacks is Pepperoni Pizza Dippers AKA Crescent Roll Pizzas. She loves that she can put them together herself and then I just pop them in the oven to bake. Crescent rolls are the secret to instant pizza dough, as well as halved mozzarella cheese sticks, which makes the un-cooked crescent easy to wrap around. We like to stuff our crescent roll pizzas with pepperoni, but any pizza topping could be used, even cheese alone works well.
Once baked, dip crescent roll pizzas in your favorite marinara or pizza sauce for the ultimate pizza flavor.
From start to finish, these pepperoni pizza dippers only take 20 minutes, making them an easy appetizer or snack when you’re short on time.
Pepperoni Pizza Dippers Recipe
- 1 can of crescent rolls 8 count package
- 24 slices of pepperoni

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Open the can of crescent rolls and place the separated triangles on a large baking sheet. Using your hands, press each triangle slightly at the edges.
Place 3 slices of pepperoni (slightly overlapping) the center of each triangle. Top with one-half of a mozzarella stick.
Roll up (starting at the side with the pepperoni and cheese) to the opposite point. Place rolls onto an ungreased baking sheet.
