Tips & suggestions...
If you can't find the reduced fat crescent rolls the regular works just the same however they may be slightly higher in points. You could try the 2 ingredient dough with this, I have not so I'm not sure what the end result will be.
It helps to roll out the dough onto the cookie sheet, make sure you pinch any seams closed to help them keep their shape when they are out of the oven.
I don't eat mushrooms but you could definitely add them in, sautee them with the peppers and onions.
Provolone cheese works well with this recipe however feel free to change up the cheese, you can use cheddar, mozzarella, even a havarti would be delicious!
You could prep these a few hours before baking them, I would suggest not to prep them the night before.
They will freeze well if you want to freeze any leftovers.
