This week it's all about one of a kid's favorite things....Pizza. Here are some of my Grandson Wes' favorite pizza treats..

Crescent Pepperoni Roll-ups
1 can refrigerated Crescent rolls
40 slices pepperoni (turkey pepperoni healthier)
4 pieces of mozzarella string cheese, cut in half
Garlic powder
Pizza sauce

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Unroll Crescent rolls and separate into 8 triangles. Place 5 slices of pepperoni on each crescent roll. Top pepperoni with string cheese half and roll up. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Place rolls on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with a side of warm pizza sauce.

Cracker Pizza

1 large flour tortilla
3 tablespoons pizza sauce
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Toppings of your choice- pepperoni, mushrooms, sausage, peppers, etc.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Spread pizza sauce on the tortilla all the way to the edge. Top with cheese and toppings. Place on a cookie sheet or preheated pizza stone. Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Pizza Noodle Casserole
8 ounces medium wide egg noodles, cooked and drained, but not rinsed.
1 pound ground beef or Italian sausage
1 (4 ounce can) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
4 ounces pepperoni, chopped
1 (15 ounce can) pizza sauce
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 374 degrees.

Brown ground beef or sausage (or a combination or both) until browned; drain excess fat. Mix in mushrooms, pepperoni, pizza sauce and cheddar cheese. Place cooked and drained noodles in a 9-inch x 13-inch x 2-inch baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam or other non-stick spray. Pour sauce over noodles and top with mozzarella cheese. Bake 30-35 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
Serves six.

The Old Guy

Serve a salad and some garlic toast with any of the above, and you have a quick and easy week night dinner. It's food fast, not fast food.
