Easy pizza twists

June 28, 2016

I love pizza.. you love pizza… we all love pizza.. Am I right?? Creating a point friendly pizza snack was what I was aiming for when I came up with these delicious bites of pizza heaven.. They are easy to make and these pizza twists are the perfect snacking food or serve them up at your next party, they will be gone in minutes I promise (so you might want to hide a few for you!) Only 2 smart points each… how awesome is that!!

  3. Spread out 1 Tbsp of pizza sauce on top of two of your dough pieces.
  4. Top each of the two pieces with 10 pepperoni slices and 2 Tbsp shredded cheese.
  5. Cover with your other two dough pieces. Using a pizza cutter, cut each into 7 pieces, giving you a total of 14 pieces.
  6. Take each piece one at a time and transport to your baking sheet, just before you lay them down give them a twist using your fingers.
  7. Sprinkle parmesan cheese and italian seasoning on top and bake in oven for approx 12 minutes. Serve warm.

    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! ๐Ÿ™‚

      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.

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

    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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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
