This recipe would be easy to adapt into a healthy recipe substitute ricota for low fat cottage cheese; pepperoni for turkey pepperoni, and crescent rolls for reduced fat crescent rolls. Mmm.

1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small bowl, combine the ricotta, Italian seasoning and salt. Stir in the mozzarella, pepperoni, Parmesan, mushrooms, green pepper and onion. Separate crescent dough into four rectangles; seal perforations.

Place cut side down on greased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with pizza sauce. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 16 appetizers.
