It's that time of the year - back to the work grind, the kids are back at school, life is getting busy all over again! Sometimes it's hard to keep up, and it's nice to not have to stress about dinner or lunch ideas.
Cue these Mozzarella Pepperoni Croissants. This recipe is so easy that you can even get the kids involved or whip up a batch yourself while they're napping. All it takes is some filling with your toppings, and a simple roll. Once in the oven they only take a few short minutes to bake to golden brown - don't forget to dunk in some marinara sauce!
