Pepperoni Pizza Pockets

  • So I know it has been a while since I have posted anything, but my computer had some major issues with it.

    I tried fixing it myself and I think I made it worse, so I had to get some professional help.

    I didn’t realize how much I relied on my computer until I didn’t have it.  Crazy!

    So I definitely had time to think of some food to post. 🙂

    Pepperoni Pizza Hand Pie

    My family loves pizza!  I mean really loves pizza.

    Like we eat it at least once a week.

    I know pizza pockets have been around for a few years but I have not made them myself and thought I would try them out.  I know I am really slow!!

    They were a big hit with all of us and they are so easy to eat and go!!

    They also work great for lunches and even an after school snack.

    My kids really like pepperoni but feel free to change up the toppings to suit your tastes.  Just be careful not to put too much in or it will be really hard to seal.

    10. Roll one of the halves to about a 12x15 inch rectangle.
    11. You may use a cookie cutter or make a temple out of cardboard. Just something to make circles in your dough. I used a small pyrex bowl that was 6 inches in diameter to make my dough circles. Just cut around the bowl.

    13. Put 2 tsp. of pasta sauce in the middle of the dough circle.
    14. Top with 1 TBS. shredded mozzarella cheese.
