Friday's Kid-Tested Recipe: Pizza Dogs

I hate sneaking food into my children's diets, so I thought I would share some of the recipes that I make with my kids (ages 4 &2)! When kids help cook, they rarely avoid the food because they helped to make it! I'll try to note steps that even the youngest children can help with in the kitchen!  My kids love pizza and hots dogs, so we thought we would try putting the two together and see what happened!  They loved them....and ate them before I could get any pictures (sorry)!
What you'll need to make it!
Canned Crescent Rolls (Reduced Fat are our favorites)
Cooked Hot Dogs (my kids love Turkey Dogs, if you haven't tried them with your kids, you should - this is a perfect use for leftover hot dogs too!)
Pizza toppings (we typically stick with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni)
Spaghetti or Pizza Sauce (my kids are picky when it comes to sauce, but they love Classico Four Cheese)
How to make it!
Separate your crescent rolls and flatten slightly so that the length of the longest edge is about the length of your hot dog.
Spread each crescent with a light coating of spaghetti sauce.
Sprinkle/Place on your toppings.
Place your hot dog on the tip of your crescent (opposite the long edge) and start rolling (some of your toppings may fall out and that's okay.
After your crescents are rolled top with a sprinkle of cheese.
(If your crescents are trying to open, you can pin them shut with a toothpick that's been soaked in water for a few minutes)
Cook at 375 for 15-20 minutes, or until crescents are golden brown (you're really cooking the crescent and warming the insides)

How to serve it!
My kids love to dip, so we serve our pizza dogs with a side of spaghetti sauce that's been warmed in the microwave for a few seconds!
Kids starting at around age 2, with supervision, can help with filling their pizza dogs (you'll be amazed at their creativity with helping - they might even come up with some creative toppings)!
