If you have children in your life, you know almost all kids love both pizza and hot dogs. This may sound different, but it's surprisingly good and combines the best of both worlds. It's a whole new twist on pigs in a blanket. The crescent roll dough is stuffed with a hot dog, cheese, and pepperoni. At the end of baking, it's topped with extra sauce and cheese to make things super yummy. After the baking process, the hot dog gets a little crisp. Great for an after-school treat, weeknight meal or a game day snack. Kids can help prepare them too.
