The way to make these is pretty similar to my pesto sausage crescent rolls.  All you need is pizza sauce, crescent rolls pepperoni and cheese (I used a mix of cheddar and mozzarella).

How to make pizza crescent rolls

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a piece of parchment paper, roll out the crescent rolls into a large sheet.  Overlap and pinch any seams to make one large connected sheet of dough.

Spread on a coating of pizza sauce, leave about 1/2 an inch of dough uncovered at top and bottom longwise.

Next layer on a small amount of cheese (not all of your cheese, just about 1/3 of it).

Top with a layer of pepperoni slices.  I spread mine out perfectly to make sure there was even coverage.

Add the rest of the cheese on top to make it nice and cheesy.

Starting from one of the long sides, begin rolling this into a log.  Since you left the extra 1/2 inch un-sauced, the dough can seal to itself and keep the log closed.

Toss into the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes to make the log easier to cut into slices.  In the meantime, spray your cookie sheet with cooking spray to prevent sticking.

Cut the log into slices about a half inch thick and spread out on cookie sheet. Pop into the oven for about 8-10 minutes or until cooked and golden brown.
