  • 1 8 oz can crescent rolls
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella or Italian blend cheese
  • ½ cup diced olives, pepperoni, or other favorite toppings

Simple Marinara Sauce

  • 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes, without seasoning
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add all sauce ingredients to a food processor and pulse until you reach desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings per preference. If a thicker sauce is desired, place sauce in a thin mesh strainer to drain off some juice.
  • Unroll and detach crescent rolls and lay flat on a sheet pan. Spread a thin layer (approx. 1 ½ tbsp) of sauce across each roll.
  • Sprinkle rolls lightly with cheese and favorite toppings, being careful not to over fill. Firmly, but gently, roll triangles into crescent shape.
  • Bake rolls for 14-16 minutes, or until rolls are golden brown.
