Recipe: Pizza Made with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls


Ainsley and I made dinner tonight while Kristen was at the gym. We kind of made it up based on stuff we have in the refrigerator. We made Pillsbury Crescent Rolls stuffed with pizza fixings.

Ingredients:

  • One Can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • One small can of pizza sauce (We had a regular size can, and only used half.)
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 16 pieces of pepperoni

Basically you pop open the crescent rolls, and unrolled them into triangles. This is a pain in the ass. One can contains eight triangles.

Put about 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce, a little shredded mozzarella, and two pieces of pepperoni on each triangle.

Roll them up according to the directions on the can. You can't really Crescent them... because they're pretty fat. Plop them on a cookie sheet (with no anti-sticking spray, etc.) and bake them at 375°F for about 12 minutes.

It makes eight rolls. Each roll is about the size of a small slice of pizza, so depending on your family you might double the recipe.

They have a slightly sweet taste because of the crescent rolls, serve you want more of a pizza flavor I'd recommend adding some garlic & oregano. We also made two of them without pepperoni, because Ainsley is a vegetarian. I tried both; the pepperoni ones were superior by far.

I don't think you could really use any other toppings because anything chunky would not roll very well. Anchovies would be a possibility, but peppers, mushrooms or onions would be too much.

Gourmet dinner... no. Twenty minute meal that kids like... yes.

Sunfyre's Google Glass Fundraiser (a.k.a. shameless begging)

Well, Google Glass went on sale today for a limited time to the general public.

Unfortunately, I can't exactly spare $1500 right now.… Commence shameless begging!

I try not to play the "help the disabled guy" card.  It goes against my nature. But in this case, I figured I'd make an exception (at least this is how I'm rationalizing it in my own head).

Google Glass has amazing potential for people like me. I can't use my arms or legs any longer. I use my voice recognition software to type, design websites, write articles and marketing plans for clients.

In the era of smart phones, they aren't very friendly to people like me. Most of them can't be navigated with a mouse, and even Apple's Siri doesn't do a great job with voice activation. First, you have to press a button just to get her attention.
