  1. Do you know the point value without the pepperoni (I don’t eat meat)? Also, where do you find low fat Pillsbury crescents?
    I really enjoy your recipes, especially the meatless ones, as they are hard to find elsewhere – thank you! 🙂

      Hi Lynda, glad your enjoying the recipes, I buy my reduced fat pillsbury crescent roll dough at most grocery stores near me.. The pepperoni only adds 4SP to the whole recipe.

  3. A coworker told me about your website the other day. I must say, I am impressed. Thanks for sharing your recipes, they look great. I can’t wait to try some of them. I’m a busy mom and I love how easy many of them are. Quick question. Do you think ground turkey would work as well?

      Hi Nicole, glad you found me 🙂 Yes many people sub in turkey in lots of my recipes, just not sure on the points for turkey pepperoni on ground turkey as I never use it .. Hope you enjoy the recipes 🙂

  4. Hi I’m making these today! Do you ever freeze them or do you think they would freeze well?

      Hi, sorry for the late reply, I have not frozen them but I think they will be fine to do so 🙂

    I love your recipes! They look so yummy and very few ingredients required!

  6. Sadly, this recipe didn’t not work for me and it looked terrible — when I tried to gently twist, all the toppings spewed out the center and went everywhere. Yikes, a major mess and no way to really recover except to throw it in the oven… looking like a mess.

    Also, in step 2, don’t roll your dough out on the cookie sheet you just prepped. Thought instinct would tell you you too!

      Hi Jen, sorry they did not turn out for you, yes they can be a bit tricky , if I could be in everyone’s kitchen helping them I would 😉 and re: step 2 I did not roll out the dough on the cookie sheet I used, I did in on a separate cutting board.. with a little patience I had no issues putting these together
