Our daughters make one recipe a week for dinner and these Pepperoni Pizza Stuffed Crescent Rolls are our youngest daughter’s creation she can’t wait to share!
I’m sitting here watching the Blind Side, remember that movie? I haven’t seen it in years. In fact, the last and only time I’ve seen the recipe is when I was in the hospital fighting to survive. It’s brought back a lot of memories sitting here, listening, watching, writing about Pepperoni Pizza Stuffed Crescent Rolls.
Ok, the writing about pepperoni pizza stuffed crescent rolls definitely didn’t happen, but it is this time and it’s all thanks to the little girl who I was desperately trying to live for in order to bring her into the world.
Can’t wait to tell you all about it!
Time has flown by too quickly, hasn’t it. I remember wanting and wishing for college and growing up, unable to see life around me.
Later I was excited to be in love, married and waiting on little ones to join our family. I had no idea that my body would work against me having children in a horrible way.
When I was pregnant with our first I got incredibly sick and couldn’t figure out what to do to keep things under control. Everyone had all of the answers…
- Eat a little cracker before you ever even sit up in bed you won’t throw up.
- Chew mint gum it will help with the nausea.
- If sleep more and take a walk outside in the cold air your body will handle the nausea more.
UGH!! It’s not true!
Maybe for someone.
Hyperemesis Gravidarum, It’s Not Morning Sickness
We wrote an entire post about Hyperemesis Gravidarum, it’s NOT morning sickness. We wanted the chance to explain what I was really going through and also, more importantly to help others be educated in what they might be suffering from and to know that they aren’t alone.
Our second pregnancy was the absolute worst. I was in and out, in and out of the hospital over and over again. On one particular stay towards the end of the pregnancy I was so physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted.
The Blind Side
When you’re that sick you can’t stand noise, movement, reading, breathing, eating and on and on. Every sensory thing you could think of only makes you more sick. Because of that you spend a lot of time staring at the walls. Not sleeping because on top of being sick I developed insomnia as well. There was no release.
But one night, out of nowhere I felt like I could attempt TV. I turned it on and The Blind Side was on. I made it off and on through most of the movie that night. It sounds silly to say but it felt like a great tender mercy.
Can you imagine staring at the wall every day, all day and all night for 9 months? It makes you feel crazy because not only are you literally bored out of your mind but you’re also so depressed and sick.
Her First Recipe Video
I know, what does this have to do with pepperoni pizza stuffed pizza rolls?
Not much, but also everything.
Our second daughter, the one that I was pregnant with when I had that tender mercy, she’s the one that created this recipe. I found her recording her own video and decided to help her out.
I held the phone and she totally made her own little video!
How is our little miracle baby old enough to do something like that?! I think it’s pretty darn good for her first video, especially at 8 years old!
Pepperoni Pizza Stuffed Pizza Rolls
As you can see, you make the pizza rolls by using just a few ingredients.
- Crescent Roll dough
- String Cheese
- Garlic Seasoning
- The BEST Pizza Sauce for dipping (and I highly recommend you make our homemade version)
Can I Use Shredded or Sliced Mozzarella?
Can I use shredded cheese? Yes! Please use any kind of mozzarella cheese that you’d like, but string cheese stays the most cheesy and stretchy in the pepperoni pizza stuffed crescent roll.
Can you Skip the Garlic Seasoning?
You don’t have to do the butter or the garlic seasoning. Or if you’d like to try a different version you could always do parmesan cheese sprinkled on top!
