Everybody’s favorite standby-pizza- gets a new treatment. Ready-made bread dough is cut into triangles and filled with all the familiar ingredients: pepperoni, cheese, herbs, and sauce. These crescents are not only easy on the budget, but make for easy eating and entertaining. Great for snacks, too.
Substitute your favorite pizza toppings (mushrooms, sauteed onions, anchovies, sausage) for the green pepper. Frozen bread dough also comes in whole wheat, a good replacement for the white dough.
Makes 16 pizza horns.
