Homemade Pizza Pockets:Quick & Easy

We’ve all seen them in the frozen aisle.  Convenient, quick, and calorie filled.  Yes, I am talking about frozen pizza pockets.  While there are some healthier alternatives, I haven’t found any that I can put in the toaster in the morning and not have them be soggy or chewy by lunch. Since my daughter has phosphate and nitrate allergies….while her friends are eating cafeteria pizza on Fridays, she needs to bring her own.

Last week I decided to experiment with homemade pizza pockets. WOW!  They were super easy to make and delicious!  The most important thing is that they held up really well!  I warm them in the toaster in the morning and at lunch they have the perfect texture at room temperature.  I even got my almost 5 year old and avoid-cooking-at-all-costs-husband to help!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of biscuits
  • Tomato sauce
  • Grated cheese (we like Monterrey Jack)
  • Pepperoni (or turkey, ham, bacon)
  • Any other toppings you might want in your pizza like California black olives

Directions: Step-by-step pics:

Preheat oven to biscuit instructions 

  

 
 

#1: Stretch biscuit dough into a circle

#2: Fill with desired ingredients

#3: Fold over & pinch edges

#4: place on baking sheet and press edges with fork

#5 Bake according to biscuit directions -keep an eye on them, every oven is different

 

(Where the cheese is oozing out is because I didn’t pinch enough)

This is how Sofia got hers packed for lunch: with fruit, veggies, and a treat.

Enjoy!
