Puff pastry meets pizza in these clever croissants, which layer the most delicious pizza ingredients onto flaky puff pastry dough. Pro tip: Placing the croissants tip-side down keeps them from unrolling in the oven.


  • ½ (17.3-ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed (1 sheet) 

  • 3 tablespoons marinara

  • 2 ounces pre-shredded Italian cheese blend (about ½ cup)

  • ¼ cup pepperoni slices

  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.

  2. Cut puff pastry sheet into 6 triangles. Top each triangle evenly with marinara, cheese, and pepperoni.

  3. Starting with widest end, roll up triangles; place tip side down on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

  4. Brush with egg, and sprinkle evenly with oregano.

  5. Bake in preheated oven until golden, about 40 minutes.
