Pizza Poppers

I put this together awhile ago when I was having some friends over.  The nice thing is that they tasted great at room temperature (I hate having to 'time' dishes) and were super easy to put together....oh...and it's pizza-who doesn't like pizza?
So...if you fall into 1 or 3 of those categories-here's an easy appetizer for football season, New Year's Eve parties....or 'just because'....which is why I make most of my dishes.  The original recipe came from cookingforkeeps.
Pizza Poppers
Ingredients:  1 pkg canned crescent rolls, 1 c. mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, 1/2 c finely diced green peppers or any other toppings (purple onion etc), 1/2 c pizza sauce for dipping
Instructions:  Preheat oven 350.  Spray two mini muffin tins with cooking spray.  Separate the crescent roll into 4 triangles (press the seams of the two triangles to form the rectangles). Sprinkle each triangle with 1/4 c cheese each, a little bit of your green peppers/onions etc.  Press into dough.  Layer pepperoni on top of cheese and other toppings.  Cover all but the very edges.  Roll tightly.  Cut into 6 even pieces.  Places poppers (cut side down) into the muffin tins.  Bake for 10 minutes (the dough should be a pale brown).  Serve with warm sauce.
