  • two rolls of crescent roll dough or two packages of pre-made pizza roll dough
  • 1 bag pepperoni slices we use turkey
  • 1 package Hillshire Farms Naturals Ham
  • bag of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • parmesan cheese
  • fresh-ground salt and pepper
  • dried oregano
  • garlic powder


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Unwrap the dough and roll it out onto a cutting board. If using crescent roll dough, press the seams together, but it isn't a big deal if there are still seams left.
  • Place your pepperoni slices onto the dough, evenly spread apart, but filling most of the dough's surface.
  • Cut the ham into tiny bite-size pieces and sprinkle over the pepperoni.
  • Add both cheeses, evenly.
  • Season well with seasonings over top.
  • Begin carefully rolling the dough from the bottom up to the top.
  • Place seam-side down before cutting with a pizza roller or super-sharp knife into 10-12 even sections.
  • If the roll is somewhat flat, press into itself to form more of a circle, and press the dough to meet the other side so that it stays.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes on a sprayed cookie sheet, pan, or baking stone until dough is no longer doughy and lightly brown and a little crisp.
  • Let cool completely before serving or packing into your child's lunch box.
