Pizza Wheels

My kids are "normal" kids, not too picky 'bout what they eat.
But coming up with new ideas they like can be a feat!

For your little eaters who are tired of your meals.
Here's a recipe we love, some Mini-Pizza-Wheels.

(This has evolved over time but I'm pretty sure this is the link to the original recipe I tweaked).
1 can of crescent rolls
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
1/4 cup grated parmesan (I've used the powdered and shredded and both are good)
1/2 cup shredded mozarella
1/2 chopped pepperoni (or ground beef would be good too)
If you like veggies, you can sneak them in too

Mix everything together and spread onto the crescent rolls like below.
Roll them up and cut them into little wheels.
(Yes, in my letter to Santa I asked for new baking sheets although my grandpa always said food tasted better when cooked or baked on a "seasoned" pan.)
Bake at 350 until nicely browned (anywhere from 8 - 15 oven is nuts).
If it weren't so cold, I would have stripped the kids naked and served these with spaghetti sauce for dipping but I didn't feel like doing tomato-sauce-drip laundry.

Did I mention this is also FAST?
