    How do you reheat these without a microwave? After our last microwave died we felt it was best not to replace it, radiation and all that. I don’t mind taking more time to heat things up.

    I’m so excited to have found this recipe! My daughter is allergic to dairy and eggs and has been wanting pizza lately. I omitted the cheese. Instead, I diced 1/2 of a green pepper and red pepper, 1/4 onion, 5 fresh mushrooms (all of these finely diced), & 1/2 tsp minced garlic. I sautéed the veggies in olive oil and used them instead of the cheese. Yum!! My sweet toddler loved it and has now has a yummy and safe pizza- thanks to you! Thanks!!!

    Can you give me an equivalent to the crescent rolls? I’ve never seen canned rolls before (I’m in Australia)

    Any tips on how to make these look pretty? I put the hot filling in the first time. Tasted great, looked awful. The second time, I chilled the filling first, and it helped, but they still came out flat balls of dough pretty much

      Taryn – Yes – cooling the filling does help in the presentation of these. To make them look similar to the picture, don’t cover the entire filling with the dough. My work surface tends to get messy too, which then makes the “sleeping bag” a little less than pretty.
