Crescent Roll Pizza Braid a fun way to eat pizza by using a can of premade crescent rolls and filling them with your favorite toppings.
These crescent roll pizza braids are fun and easy to make. In fact, it is a recipe that you can get your kids involved with. I am sure they would love to help with adding the filling to each braid.
Normally I like making my own dough when I am making pizza. I have been using the same pizza dough recipe for more than 20 years (that sounds like an awfully long time). It’s a recipe that I found in a magazine way back when; I have changed it a bit to suit my taste, but it’s a good one.
The crescent rolls work well for these braids and they look pretty impressive when they are baked. I like making individual braids instead of one big one that way you can change up the filling for each individual. And, that is the nice thing about making individual pizza braids each person can have what they want.
How to make a crescent roll pizza braid:
Divide the dough into 4 rectangles. Seal the perforations before adding any of the ingredients. With a pizza cutter cut the sides into about 1/2 inch strips about 1 inch long. Spread the center of the dough with pizza sauce.
Top with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. Starting at the end fold over one strip of dough and then take one from the opposite side and fold over the top of the first one. Continue this procedure until completed. brush with olive oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
Bake in a 375 degree F preheated oven for12 to 14 minutes.
