Prepare for baking: Preheat the oven to 375F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
Roll out the dough: Remove the dough from the can and roll out the dough in a single flat layer. Pinch together any seams to ensure there are no holes in the crust.
Assemble the pizza: Spread the sauce onto the top of the crescent roll dough in an even layer leaving a ½ inch border for the crust.
Toppings: Sprinkle on the cheese, pepperoni, and oregano until evenly distributed.
Bake, slice, and serve: Add the pizza to the preheated oven and bake for 12-18 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
Don't forget to spray the baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray before adding the crescent roll dough. This will help to prevent sticking and ensure that the pizza slides right off when it's time to serve.
When rolling out the dough, there may be seams to create each roll. Use your fingers to pinch these seams together to create one flat crescent pizza crust.

The baking time may vary depending on how hot your oven is and how many toppings you put on. Check the pizza at the 12-minute mark and add more time as needed.

Sauce Ideas: Instead of red pizza sauce, try using a variety of different sauces including BBQ, Alfredo, or even a creamy garlic sauce.
Cheese: Change up the cheese by using cheddar, provolone, parmesan, or any other type of shredded cheese that you like.
Meat Toppings: Add your favorite meat toppings to the pizza including sausage, hamburger, chicken, or bacon. Try making a Mexican pizza by topping it with Sheet Pan Mexican Ground Beef.
