Quick and Easy Pizza Croissants with Warm Italian Butter Spread

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Unilever.

I’ve mixed up pizza sauce, cheese and all kinds of breads and doughs for as long as I can remember, but the one thing I had never done was to add a hot, buttery seasoned glaze of happiness o’er the top. So I did it.

Oh my word, why did I wait so long!!!

I melted some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, mixed in some seasonings and then brushed it on top of these freshly baked pizza croissants.

Oh heaven, oh heaven.

Pizza Croissants recipe

Before I give you the recipe (adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything,) let me just remind you why I’ve been extolling the virtues of using spreads instead of butter. I’m desperately trying to keep the heart disease family curse away from me, so using cholesterol-free spreads with 0g trans fats is super important to me.

Yes, I should give up pizza completely, but Since I’m stubbornly attached to it, I just eat it a lot less often and make it taste especially good when I have it. Plus, using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter eases my guilt a little bit. ;)

So anyway, here’s how I made these yummy pizza croissants. So easy!

Ready for the recipe? 

Quick and Easy Pizza Croissants
(brushed with warm Italian butter spread)

Ingredients
1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent roll dough (feel free to use a reduced fat version)
4 cheese sticks, halved
1 (3.5 ounce) package turkey pepperoni (or regular, if desired)

Italian Butter Spread
4 Tbsp I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spread, melted
3/4 teaspoon Italian seasonings
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon and a pinch or two of grated Parmesan cheese

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place a few pepperoni slices (more if you want it loaded) onto the wide end of each dough triangle. Place a cheese stick half on top and roll up. (I also made several without pepperoni, just cheese.) Place seam side down on a cookie sheet and bake for about 12-14 minutes or until a nice golden brown.

3.  While croissants are baking… In a small bowl, mix together the melted I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and remaining ingredients.

  3. I make these all the time and always change up what I stuff teh croissants with. I love the versatility! You can even do nutella and strawberries or banana for a yummy dessert!

    Made these for the kids for lunch today! They loved them.

  5. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says:

    These look REALLY good – and also wonderfully adaptable! I mean if you don’t want the Pepperoni – you could substitute from cold cuts, to leftover roast beef, chicken or turkey – or even Pulled Pork – not to mention VEGGIES!

    I also love the use of the “cheese sticks” which you can usually get in both Cheddar and Mozzarella (or whatever marketing name they might call them ; – ) !!! Thanks Liz – aka dearheart amiga / my favorite BlueViolet!

  6. I’m am definitely going to try this recipe !! My son will love it :)
