Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray the insides of 4 ramekins.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 10 minutes; drain and discard grease. Add onion, green bell pepper, and mushrooms; cook and stir until vegetables are softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in pizza sauce and simmer until flavors have blended, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese into sausage mixture.
Spoon 1/4 the sausage mixture into each prepared ramekin; top each with 1/4 the remaining mozzarella cheese.
Roll out the crescent roll dough; cut the dough into 4 equal pieces. Cover each ramekin with 1/4 the crescent roll dough, wrapping the dough around the edges to seal in the fillings. Arrange the pot pies on a baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven until dough is light golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
I selected 3 (hot, mild, and Mediterranean) flavors from the deli counter at our grocery store. This combination adds great flavor, eliminating the need for any seasoning. If you like it spicy, add in crushed pepper or other hot sauce like Frank's(R) Red Hot!
For healthier options, switch the sausage with ground turkey or lean chicken. You will need to add seasoning, such as garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and a hot sauce or crushed pepper to get a more flavorful dish. Omit the cheese and use reduced-fat crescent rolls.
