Pizza Spirals

I had some cresent rolls to use that I got at a super price, so I tried this recipe. I double the recipe, but next time with just make a single batch. I made mine with triple meat: Pepperoni, Sausage, and Bacon. So I served it with a large side salad. John really liked it...my kids were not thrilled because it didn't "look like pizza" *Sigh
1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
3/4 cup chopped low-fat pepperoni
8 teaspoons pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce
5 teaspoons warmed low-fat cream cheese
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 1/2 cups shredded lowfat mozzarella cheese
any other fillings: bell pepper or ground beef, etc, to taste
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Unroll dough into 4 long rectangles.
Press diagonal perforations firmly to seal.
Spread warmed cream cheese evenly on dough.
Spread pizza sauce evenly on top of cream cheese.
Add oregano and garlic spreading evenly over all.
Sprinkle chopped pepperoni over all.
Add any extra ingredients you would like.
Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
Roll up each rectangle starting at the shortest side, press and seal firmly.

Cut each of the 4 rolls into 5 slices to make 20 slices.
Spray cookie sheet or muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray.
Place cut side down on sprayed cookie sheet or muffin tins. Careful, they can be sticky!
Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from cookie sheet.
Can be served warm or cooled and placed in the freezer.
