Sourdough Crescent Pizza Rolls

I need to do some whining here. I am so tired of trying to find a house to rent! It should not be this difficult! Craigslist doesn’t really exist out here yet, which leaves me pouring over the classified ads with a red marker every week. We even have countless people trying to help us, and still nothing! That isn’t to say there are no houses to rent, because there are. There are a lot of houses to rent! The problem comes down to our two furry babies. Apparently having dogs means I am totally unworthy of keeping a house and yard in good shape.

Which, frankly, is just irritating. I know its hard to find people you can trust who will live in your house and take care of it. I get that. But don’t get hang up on me when I call! I’ve even offered to do whatever it takes – extra deposits, non-refundable deposits, recommendation letters, and still, I get met with cold shoulders. I promise we are nice and responsible! We won’t have wild keggers in your house, we won’t make meth in the garage, we won’t steal all the copper pipes. Our puppies don’t dig, chew, or pee everywhere. I can’t promise anything about barking because, well, they are dogs after-all. But we are nice, responsible people, who just want a nice place to call home! And we have all our teeth! That’s a plus, right?

These fun little crescent rolls come to you straight from Shelley at C Mom Cook. We were talking the other day and she told me she made these incredible soft and easy crescent rolls with her sourdough starter! Well, you know I just had to try them out!

We decided to fill ours with pepperoni slices and some shredded cheese and serve them for dinner. They were so fun to make and to eat! They were great as dinner, but they would be fun appetizers, too! And they would be excellent even without the pizza insides. Try them and let me know what you did with yours! 

Sourdough Crescent Pizza Rolls (C Mom Cook)
Yield: 12 rolls

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 TBSP sugar
4 TBSP butter
2/3 cup sourdough starter
Pepperoni slices
shredded mozzerella cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar.
Cut or rub in the butter until coarse.
Mix in the sourdough starter and stir together to make a soft dough.
Gently knead the dough for about a minute.
Divide the dough in half, and on a floured surface, roll each half out into a 9″ circle.
Cut each circle into 6 wedges (so 12 wedges total).
Place pepperoni slices and shredded cheese on each wedge, and then roll up (starting from the big bottom and ending at the small point).
Place on a baking sheet, forming a crescent, and bake for 12 minutes.
