Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips 
  1. I do not recommend using the new Cresent Roll Dough Sheets for this recipe nor for the Crescent Roll Veggie Pizza recipe. I've tested the new sheets against the crescent rolls and the sheets cook unevenly and get very crispy. The actual crescent rolls stay a bit soft and puff up a little when you bake them. The crescent rolls are a much better choice for this recipe. 
  2. I am all about convenience so I use pre-shredded cheese and pre-shredded iceberg lettuce from the grocery store. You could also use the pre-diced tomatoes that are sold in the produce department at most grocery stores.
  3. Be sure to completely cool the baked crescent dough pizza base before assembling. In fact, I usually bake mine early in the morning and let it sit on the countertop to cool or I make it the day before I'm going to serve it. I leave it on the countertop on the cookie sheet and simply cover them lightly with a paper towel or plastic wrap.
