  • 1 package (8 oz) Pillsbury Original Crescent Roll Sheet
  • 1 batch Vegan Pistachio Pesto (or 1 cup of any pesto)
  • 8 sun-dried tomatoes (chopped/cut)


  1. Sprinkle some flour on your working surface and roll out the Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheet, being careful to not pull it apart. Pinch together any of the perforations, making sure it is one continuous sheet of dough.

  2. Spread the pesto over the whole sheet and sprinkle sun-dried tomatoes. 

  3. Take the shorter side and roll up the sheet of dough being sure that the end is pinched together so nothing falls out.

  4. Cut off the sad looking ends that might not be exactly perfect, then cut the roll into 8 pieces.

  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-16 minutes or until the edges get a golden brown. 

  6. Enjoy with your festivities!
