We are back to school since yesterday!
And to ring in the year with a healthy lunch we packed Whole Grain Pizza Pockets!
In our Easylunchboxes, we packed cucumber slices, an all natural apple sauce and Whole Grain Pizza Pockets! I also packed a Mini Dipper with some extra pizza sauce for dipping!
The last time I made pizza pockets, it was a huge success with my kids since you can really fill these pockets with anything your kids like! However, the dough I used had food dye and I was quite disappointed when I discovered this since we love these pockets. I have looked since into a couple of other options and found that Pillsbury does make a food dye free pizza dough. I was very happy to find that the Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Dough with Whole Grain is food dye free! For the tutorial for the pizza pockets please check my previous post HERE.
I made two different kinds of pizza pockets. Some with pizza sauce, mini turkey pepperoni and mozzarella cheese and some with just sauce and pepperoni and no cheese. In order to keep track I added a different number of pepperoni to the top of the pockets. Great tip when you are making several different kinds so you don't end up packing the no cheese pockets for the wrong child :)
I also added a Lunchbox Love Note for their first day back!
