Deep Fried Crescent Pizza Rolls

I was in the mood for mozzerella sticks but I didn't have bread crumbs. Then I thought pizza rolls but didn't have egg roll wrappers. Hmmm. Ah ha! I have refrigerated crescent rolls. Deep frying gave the pizza rolls the most amazing texture - crispy on the outside and flaky on the inside with ooey goey mozzerella and yummy pepperoni. The possibilities are endless - ham and cheese, hamburgers, fried fruit pies...I can't wait to play with this some more.
