Homemade Pizza Crescent Rolls

While being sick over the past couple of days, I spent a lot of time on Pinterest and decided I had to not only make pizza crescent rolls, but I had to make the crescent rolls from scratch! I used the recipe that I found from Baking Bites, and they turned out so yummy!
Here is the recipe: Easy Homemade Crescent Rolls 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast 1/4 cup water, warm (100-110F) 1/2 cup milk, warm (100-110F) 1 tbsp sugar 2 cups bread flour 1/2 tsp salt 4 tbsp butter, room temperature In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, or in a large bowl if you prefer to mix by hand, combine yeast, water, milk and sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes, until foamy. Add in bread flour and salt and mix well with a dough hook. Cut the softened butter into three or flour pieces and drop them into the dough, letting the mixer blend them in. Knead (with a mixer or by hand) for about 2 minutes. Cover the bowl and let rise for 45 minutes in a warm place. Preheat oven to 400F. Turn risen dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Press it out into a circle with your hands, then use a rolling pin to roll it out into an even, 10-inch circle. Use a pizza cutter or a sharp knife to divide the circle into 12 triangles (just like slicing a pizza). Starting with the outside edge of one of the triangles, roll the edge towards the center of the “pizza.” Once rolled, curve the roll slightly into a crescent shape and place on a parchement-lined baking sheet. Repeat with all rolls. Cover rolls with a clean dish towel and let rise for 20 minutes. Melt additional 1 tbsp butter in a small bowl. Brush tops of rolls with butter butter. Bake for 14-18 minutes, until golden brown. Allow to cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before serving. Makes 12 rolls.
Before I rolled them up, I added some tomato sauce, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese to half and the other half, I added ham and cheese. I then rolled them up and popped them in the oven!
They were so good!
