If you're looking for an easy, kid friendly and affordable meal, you've come to the right place! Today's recipe is all of that and much more!

These Crescent Roll Pizza Bites are such a fast lunch, dinner or appetizer. You can customize with your family's favorite pizza toppings or serve it with classic pepperoni like we did.

This is one meal most kids will love. Unless you dislike pizza, like my 15 year old. She's picky about pretty much everything, so there's always other options for her dinners.

Not only will kids love it, but they can easily help make them! We love using cooking as an opportunity to learn by measuring, teaching life skills and so much more. The reward for our hard work is eating the delicious end result. 

These pizza bites are so delicious. We love the buttery flavor from the crescent rolls, and they're nice and cheesy. Serve with some extra sauce on the side for dipping, and a salad for a complete meal. So simple and filling.
