Recipe by Alekas Get Together.


  • 1 sheet crescent dough
  • 6 oz. pizza sauce
  • 2-3 sticks mozzarella string cheese
  • Italian seasoning (*optional)
  • pepperoni (*optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Lightly flour cutting board and unroll cold crescent dough. Cut out 9-12 mini footballs using football cookie cutter.
  3. Place footballs on baking sheet and spread a spoonful of sauce over each football. Spread to edges leaving a slight border. Bake for 7 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, cut mozzarella cheese into 9-12 (2-3") strips and 63-108 mini ½" strips. (Get your kids to help with this!)The mini strips are for the vertical laces. Each football should get 7-9 laces.
  5. When pizzas are slightly cooled, add 7-9 vertical strips evenly spaced apart onto each football. Top with one long horizontal strip.
  6. Place back in the oven for 1-2 minutes. Serve hot!

Recipe Notes

  • Keep your crescent dough as COLD as possible! Working with cold dough will make it much easier to cut and transfer.
  • Make sure you bake your dough first. If you skip this step, your cheese will burn and crust will be undercooked.
  • Cut your laces long enough so they look like laces when melted.
  • Make the vertical laces shorter on the ends to look more realistic.
  • Cut your pepperoni into mini circles using a piping tip and add them to the sauce if you prefer.
  • Add cheese underneath the pizza sauce if your kids love more cheese.
