Pepperoni Pizza Crescents

Pepperoni Pizza Crescents

About three years ago, my ex and I moved in together. I was so excited about having our own place and having a chance to have people over and cook. It was just the most amazing thing to me at the time. I had one of my dearest friends over one day, and I went all out on the food. We had snack, apps, and dinner. It was pretty intense. One of the things I made were these pepperoni pizza crescents. I, of course, tweaked the recipe a bit and added in olives, since we all love olive and pepperoni pizza. Point being these were a total hit.

I would reccomend these from now until I’m no longer around. These are some really great snacks, and they’re fun to make with others. 

If you have your nieces and nephews over wiht your kids, or you have you grandkiddos over, this would be a really fun thing to make with them. One, they’ll love the end result. Two, they’re going to love with the helping to make the food. At the preschool where I work, we will let some of the older kids (ages 4-6) sometimes help make lunch. They learn about why it’s important to wash their hands. They learn about clean workspaces, and then they also get to help assemble the meal for the rest of their friends. It always fills them with such joy and pride. Involve the kids, and watch them beam when they see the end result!
