Today was another dreary and rainy fall day and since I was up early I decided to pack something hearty for lunch. I still had a tube of Pillsbury recipe creations and decided pizza pockets would be fast and fun!
I unrolled the dough and cut it in 8 rectangles. I then added a small amount of pizza sauce (a staple in our house) and some mini turkey pepperoni to the dough. I topped it with cheese, folded them over and used a fork to press the dough closed.
Very easy and fast and you can fill these pockets with anything you have in the fridge - ham and cheese for example.
I put them in the oven at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes. The house smelled so good when they were done and the kids were excited that they got to bring a special lunch today.
Doesn't this look good? Since we had a three day weekend I was a little short on fresh food and packed freshly popped popcorn, apple sauce, the mini pizza pockets and an organic Jammy Sammy. Since my youngest son lost his first tooth yesterday I also added a small sweet treat:
a Choco Hail Merry Macaroon! They are so so good and raw, gluten-free and vegan!
If you have not tried them before you should. So good and good for you ;)
I added a cute tooth pick since we celebrate all lost teeth.
Update: The Pillsbury Recipe Creations contains food dye. I did not see this until after I posted. I have looked and found several dye free alternatives including Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain. If your child needs to eat food dye free - please substitute!
