Pizza Crescent Rolls

I’m not really sure how I found food inspiration before Pinterest.

I guess that’s what cookbooks and magazines are for? Now don’t get me wrong – I love reading cookbooks. But only if they have pictures. It’s a requirement for me to even consider the cookbook.

That’s what makes Pinterest so great. It’s all pictures. And I stumbled across these and stuck them on my Entertaining and Appetizers board. I am obsessed with crescent rolls, so it was a sure win.

Now this is one of those recipe inspiration dishes. There are no exact measurements, just whatever you feel in your heart and stomach.

Pizza Crescent Rolls
Inspired by Food is My Friend

Crescent rolls:
Can jumbo crescent rolls
Bell peppers
Black olives
Marinara sauce

Roll crescent rolls out onto a sprayed pan, then finely chop the ingredients to put inside. Spoon a little sauce onto the crescent roll at the wide end, and put a small amount of your ingredients on top of the sauce. Roll the crescent rolls and, if possible, tuck the side ends in.

Olive oil
Garlic pepper
Dried oregano
Dried basil

In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the glaze. Using a pastry brush, brush the olive oil mixture onto the crescent rolls and bake 10-13 minutes at 375°F, or according to the directions on the package.


Vegetable Pizzadilla

I am getting excited for holiday THINGS but not the holidays. Not yet.

Like, pumpkin everything and, better yet, PEPPERMINT everything.

Check out these super sweet Pringles. And I just bought this soap yesterday. And I’m about to take my second shower of the day because of it. Double win.

And on a non-peppermint note, this needs to be in my belly now. And this already is in my belly.

But here’s a totally non peppermint or even sweet thing. But it is ‘sweet’ in the awesome sense. Hello, pizzadilla.

This isn’t a technical recipe. This is just from Pinterest, but specifically from The Key Ingredient.

— tortilla + pizza (or pasta) sauce + black olives + bell peppers + spinach + tomatoes + mozzarella cheese

— stick it on a greased skillet over medium heat, let it toast for a few minutes, flip, and continue until slightly crispy on each side

Blueberry and Peach Pizza

I’ve done it again. I made a fruit pizza.

Now, my coworkers look at me like I’m crazy. But I’m not. I’m just crazy for fruit. Not crazy mental.

If you’ve never roasted fruit, you don’t know what you’re missing. Something about sticking a piece of fruit in the oven and pulling it out 10-30 minutes later is the most incredible experience. The fruit becomes sweeter (yes, it’s possible) and juicy and plump and fragrant and downright delicious.

An old childhood friend came to visit this past weekend, and we had a blast. Straight up girl time. Luckily, she is with me on the fruit pizza train, and she wolfed it down.

Just, trust me. Sometimes, you have to trust people. I’ve learned from trusting people that sleeping with a pillow between your knees reduces back pain and aligns your hips, liquid eyeliner is a lot easier to use than you think, and refrigerating cookie dough before you bake it makes it less likely to turn into melted cookie ice cream pudding. Good things come to those who are trusting [of the right people]. I’m the right person.

Now go make some fruit pizza.

Blueberry and Peach Pizza

1 whole wheat pizza crust
1/3 c pesto
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 peach, thinly sliced

1/4 c feta, crumbled

1. Spoon and spread pesto onto crust, then brush balsamic vinegar on top of pesto.
2. Place peach slices, blueberries and feta on top of pizza crust.
3. Bake according to directions.


Now that I am out of school and back at home, my life pretty much consists of the gym, work [aka: reading Harry Potter in the back of a yogurt shop], and cleaning my room. Oh, and some crafts.

I apologize for my lack of recipes lately. I had two more recipes but they had terribly blurry photos and I couldn’t bring myself to blog about them.

So? I’m giving you some lunch inspiration. Lunch can get you down sometimes. It’s easy to just say “Eh, I’ll just have a snack and wait til dinner.” or “Peanut butter & jelly sandwich again? Sure.” or “Ice cream totally counts as a meal, right?” Don’t worry. I am here to inspire you.
