Pizza Braid

Pizza Braid

Have you ever wanted pizza but were to lazy to make the pizza dough?

This happened to me not to long ago and I didn’t have any store bought pizza dough.  I normally will have a roll of Pilsbury pizza dough but not that day.  But I did have some Pilsbury Crescent dough.  So I decided to make a pizza braid.  This recipe you can make however you want.  Use the ingredients you have on hand.  You could also make it flat instead of a braid, but I like the look of the Pizza Braid.

  12. Parmesan cheese
  1. In frying pan, fry Italian sausage until completely cooked.
  2. Add tomato sauce and mix well.

  2. You could use a variety of meats, vegetables and cheeses.
  3. This recipe also works without braiding and making it like a regular pizza.
