    Really good! I put dried basil on top of the mozzarella (used slices not sticks) and brushed the top with butter, garlic and Italian seasoning. They were delicious!

    This recipe was a hit with my family. Picky kids liked it. Served almost as a side with some fettuccine, and it was great.

    So yummy! I ended up using shredded mozzarella cheese and they still came out just as good. I think next time I will try melted butter with garlic and brush that on the croissants instead of the egg. Overall great, my picky eater loved it!

    Turned out ok... crescent roll tasted a little too buttery for the stuffing. Probably would not make again.

    Kids loved them! Used mozzarella slices instead of stick. Felt like stick would likely not melt enough and my kids don’t like the the cheese sticks. Mozzarella slices worked perfect cut in half.

    They’re good, not great. 4 stars just because I thought the mozzarella cheese halves were a little too thick for the small rolls. The cheese didn’t melt all the way. Also, the dough comes out a bit too thin. I’ll try using less cheese next time.

    I cut up the pepperoni in small pieces for my 2 year old grandson’s croissants and layered the remaining as the recipe said. My son and DIL loved them and my picky eater grandson liked that he could dip it in pizza sauce like Grandma

    They were easy- taste wasn’t good though. Definitely would use a different dough- maybe phyllo.

    Great idea and was fun to make. Very easy. But we didn't like the taste. We think it was the crescent rolls. Would make again with different dough.
