|A baked version of crab rangoon|
The recipe I put into my files used a pizza crust but I started to wonder if it wouldn't be even better using the crescent rolls as a crust instead of the pizza dough; similar to the other appetizer base.
I am going to post it from my files with the store bought pizza crust as listed but I'm already playing with this recipe in my mind to two one of two things; either I'll make my own homemade crust (I never buy canned pizza dough, always make it from scratch) or I will try this recipe with the crescent rolls pressed into the pan and the seals sealed to make a bottom crust. I think that's my first choice. Have any of you tried this yet???
