Cheesy Pizza Wreath Skewers

It’s fun. It’s easy. And it all started with a completely different recipe.

I love my Kraft Food and Family magazine.  A recipe for a Baked Cheese and Veggie Twist caught my eye- but the ingredient list was one that my family would never go for.  Broccoli? No way! Mushrooms? Nuh-uh!  But my wheels started spinning… what a fun way to make a pizza!

Crescent rolls, lined up as shown in the magazine (or you can watch the video on that link up there), a layer of sauce, pepperoni, mozzarella.  Folded the edges over to form the “wreath.”  Used a crescent roll triangle to form a middle to the wreath.  Baked at 375 for 20 minutes.  Took it out and put a few slices of pepperoni in the middle and then put mozzarella all around the wreath.  Baked another 10 mins.

But we didn’t have any.  Maybe… a skewer? None of those.  But I did have chopsticks- each child got one stick and the fun began!
