Pizza Bundles with Friends

Last week, we were able to spend a few hours with a dear old friend of mine and her kiddos. We've known each other since the awkward years of junior high school and still enjoy a sweet friendship that knows no bounds. Since we were at their house over the noon hour, she graciously made the kids some Pizza Bundles for lunch.
I forced her kindly asked her if I could document it in pictures, just in case the kids really liked it. She agreed, but warned me that she had only seen it on Pinterest and hadn't actually tried it. Fortunately, it was a huge hit with the kids. So, I thought I'd share it with you too. Oh, and because this was just a casual lunch among friends, I did not have her bring out her good dishes just so I could turn her kitchen into a food studio. She was sweet enough to let me take pictures of the process.
Here's what you need: pizza sauce, crescent rolls, string cheese and pepperoni (or other pizza toppings)
Start by separating out the triangles.
On each triangle at the large end, place 3-5 pepperoni pieces and/or other toppings.
Top the pepperoni with 1/2 of a string cheese. (For some of the bundles, we skipped the pepperoni all together and got rave reviews from the two 8 year olds.)
Roll up the bundles and place on cookie sheet.
She used her well-seasoned Pampered Chef stonewear. You could sprinkle the bundles with Italian seasoning or garlic powder before baking too.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 12-14 minutes or until the bundles are golden. Remove from pan and serve with your favorite pizza sauce.

We had a blast catching up and letting the kids play. It would have been nice if I would have gotten some pictures of our play date. Oh well, maybe next time. At least we've got our memories... and the Pizza Bundles.

Besides a fun lunch for the kids, these Pizza Bundles would make a great snack for your Super Bowl parties coming up. I know we'll be making a batch at home real soon. They were that good...or so I'm told. They were all eaten before I got to sample them.

I'm linking up at some of these great parties and

  7. I make this with Rhodes rolls. They can be a little more of a hassle because you have to let them thaw out so not a quick snack but they taste really yum. Like you said, sprinkling with Italian season adds some great flavor.
    Have a wonderful Thursday,
