Our household is made of of 4 growing boys and 1 teenage girl, so you can imagine how many times a day I get the infamous ” I’m hungry” or “There isn’t anything to eat!” phrases! Enter Pizza Spirals! These little bites of yummy pizza goodness amazingly appeal to all 5 of the kids (and this rarely happens!) A typical batch of these will get eaten before they are even cool on the rack. The combination of the traditional pizza flavors, along with the cream cheese, make these little bites truly delicious! I have learned that when I make them, I need to make 5 batches if I want to freeze any for later.

- 1 package refrigerated crescent rolls
- 5 Tbsp cream cheese, warmed
- 1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 8 Tbsp pizza sauce
- 3/4 cup chopped pepperoni
- garlic and oregano, if desired
- Additional or alternate toppings: browned ground beef or sausage, cheddar cheese, onions, mushrooms
Unroll crescent roll dough into 4 long rectangles, pressing the diagonal perforations to seal. Spread warm cream cheese evenly over dough. Sprinkle with garlic and oregano if desired. Spread pizza sauce evenly over the top of the cream cheese. Sprinkle chopped pepperoni, then mozzarella cheese on top. Tightly roll up each rectangle, starting at the shortest side. Cut each of the rolls into 5 slices. Place slices on greased cookie sheet and bake 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool pizza spirals completely. Flash freeze on baking sheet or cooling rack. Transfer to gallon freezer bag and freeze up to 3 months. TO SERVE: Do not thaw. Microwave 60 seconds or until warmed through.
