This version comes together in a jiffy with the use of crescent roll dough. Then it is topped with a simple ground beef mixture and cheese.  All the pizza basics!

  • Hi. Love your blog and now have a link button on my own to yours! Please tell me, here in the UK we do sometimes get crescent roll dough, we always used to have Pilsbury dough when I was young, however if I cannot get it is the pastry you are using equivalent to puff pastry? Desperate to try this recipe so please help.x
