Add red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, and pizza sauce to beef mixture. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, Meanwhile, spray a 9 x 13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Line bottom of pan with crescent dough and press to seal seams. Sprinkle dough with parmesan cheese. Spread meat mixture over crust and top with mozzarella cheese.

Review: Pretty yummy! Super easy to make and it reheats well. We served each with a big Caesar salad (lettuce, a bit of parm, and light Caesar dressing) to boost up the calories. I’ll definitely make this again – may even add some more red pepper flakes for extra spice!
