Love. {Quick Pizza Edition}

We had a house showing last night and didn't arrive home until it was almost bedtime for the kiddos. I did a quick scan of my fridge to see what I could whip up for dinner and after finding an almost-empty jar of spaghetti sauce and some crescent roll dough, a new family favorite was born.

"Quick Pizza"
(Because I am AWESOME at coming up with creative names for stuff.)

-1 can Pillsbury Crescent Creations Dough
-1 half-used jar of some kind of spaghetti sauce you found wedged between an expired container of yogurt and an apple
-1/3 fresh mozzarella ball, sliced
-1/2 tomato (rinsed with Veggie Wash!), diced
-some minced garlic
-turkey pepperoni
-whatever else you happen to find in your fridge that might taste good on pizza

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a glass 13 x 9 casserole dish with some trusty Pam. Unroll crescent dough and spread spaghetti sauce in an even layer on aforementioned dough. Thinly slice the fresh mozzarella and lay the slices side by side on the sauce-covered dough until the entire surface is covered. Sprinkle said surface with some diced tomato, some chopped up turkey pepperoni, and a tiny bit of minced garlic. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the crust looks the way you like. Then watch your family inhale the entire pan in less than 15 minutes. Our stats looked like this:

Dadda: Three slices
Caleb: Three slices
Mama: Two slices
Naomi: One slice
Kitchen floor thanks to the somewhat unsteady hands of a toddler: One slice

The organic garlic totally negates the sugary crescent dough, right?

Ha ha. Ha.

Healthy? No. Yummy? YES. I'm pretty sure we'll keep this on the menu for a while.

Have a lovely weekend, friends!
