My family LOVES pizza. We love it so much that we have it once a week! Here is another way to get your pizza fix if you are a fan like we are. 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!
