The biggest problem with this recipe is… you won’t have leftovers! Everyone loves a good pizza pocket, even better when you are able to make your own. You gotta know, I am all about saving money and this is JUST the type of recipe to do this.
A few tips and tricks with this recipe, if you check out the video below you will notice that we got really excited and overfilled out pockets. It took some stretching and manipulating but we were able to close everything up (like a little dumpling), but you can save yourself a little frustration by stretching your dough before adding your ingredients.
The only other thing I want to say about this one is this is a perfect “beginning” recipe for those kids who are interesting in cooking. Or kids that are on the younger side and need a recipe that is simple and easy to be creative with.
Honestly, this one could be as simple as dough + cheese + pepperoni.
|Pillsbury Grands Croissants|
|4 String Cheese Sticks|
|Small Jar Pizza Sauce|
|1/4 Onion Sliced|
|1/4 Red Bell Pepper Sliced|
|1 Smoked Sausage Sliced|
|4 Slices Pepperoni Sliced|
|4 Slices Salami Sliced|
|1/4 tsp Italian Seasoning|
We ate these “as is”, but the possibilities for dipping sauces are endless. We have tried: more pizza sauce, ranch, melted butter with garlic, hot sauce… just to name a few.
