Easy Cheesy Pizza Sticks are made with store-bought dough, pizza sauce, and cheese, and only take 20 minutes to make, start to finish. Whether you're looking for a simple lunch or a delicious dinner, this pizza recipe is perfect for you!


  • 1 (8 oz.) can refrigerated crescent dough sheet
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded whole-milk mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup pepperoni
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pizza sauce for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Unroll crescent dough sheet on baking sheet and gently press to form an even rectangle.
  3. Spread 1/4 cup pizza sauce lengthwise across half of the dough. Sprinkle the mozzarella over the pizza sauce and arrange the pepperoni on top of the cheese.
  4. Fold the dough in half lengthwise, gently pressing to seal the dough on the bottom and sides.
  5. Using a knife, cut through the dough into 12 even sticks.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, garlic powder, basil, oregano, and salt, then brush over the top of the dough sticks.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until deep golden brown on edges. Cool for 5 minutes and serve with warmed pizza sauce for dipping.


  • You can also used canned pizza dough, store-bought pizza dough, or around 8 ounces of my favorite homemade pizza dough.
