  • 8 ounces crescent roll dough
  • 3 tablespoons pesto approximately
  • 2 slices low moisture mozzarella cheese


  1. Lay out the triangles of crescent roll dough.  Cut each piece of cheese into 4 pieces.  Fold or cut each piece into 4 smaller pieces.  You will have 8 small stacks of 4 tiny slices each.

  2. Place 1 teaspoon of pesto in the center of the widest part of the triangle of crescent roll dough.  Place a small stack of mozzarella cheese on the pesto.

  3. Roll the crescent roll up, starting at the wide end, wrapping over the filling and ending with the small end wrapped around and tucked underneath.

  4. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes, until crescent rolls are golden brown and the cheese inside has melted.

Recipe Notes

I used Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, 8 count in an 8 ounce package, to make this recipe.
