Here’s a quick, easy, and inexpensive pizza recipe. “I don't have many recipes to share that are my own. This recipe is a collection of things I have learned after making it for my family, friends, and people from around the world,” said Tineal Puaoi, a Civil Designer at Kodani & Associates Engineers. Tineal says, “not to worry if your crust gets a little dark -- it will still taste just as good.” She recommends using a pan with holes on the bottom if you want a crispier crust.



1 tubeoriginal crescent roll
olive oil or butter (optional)
roasted garlic


1 – 14.5 oz candiced tomatoes, undrained
1 – 6 oz cantomato paste
1 tspsugar -- makes the sauce sweet
½ tspdried oregano
¼ tspgarlic salt
½ tspdried basil
Pinchcrushed red pepper (optional)


Anything you would like to put on your pizza, including leftovers or your favorite topping. This recipe uses:

½ cup thinly sliced Portuguese sausage
2 cups shredded mozzarella


  1. Roll out the crescent roll dough onto a pan covered in tinfoil. Pinch all the dough's perforated holes together and roll up the edges -- about ¼" thick. Flatten the center of the pizza crust with your hands
  2. Bake the crust according to instructions on the crescent roll tube and depending on your oven. The crust will turn a golden brown when fully cooked. The dough will puff up a bit
  3. Prepare your sauce by blending or hand mixing all ingredients
  4. Place the desired amount of sauce on the crust
  5. Evenly sprinkle shredded cheese and add toppings
  6. Bake at the same temperature as the crescent roll instructions until cheese melts
  7. Brush crust with olive oil or butter mixed with roasted garlic
