Easy Pizza Pockets

Sometimes I get really tired of cooking those three meals per day...so I come up with something fun AND tasty for both kids and adults. Tonight was one of those times, so without further ado I bring you Easy Pizza Pockets!

The excitement is building as the ingredients are gathered:
  • 1- can crescent rolls
  • Sliced pepperoni
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Pasta sauce 

Yes, those baby feet are clean ;-)

And the helpers are eager to pitch in so that the much anticipated meal can quickly be served:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Separate crescents into triangles
  • Spread one spoonful of sauce
  • Add 2 pepperoni slices
  • Top with cheese 

The next part is a bit messy, so better for the adult to do!
  • Beginning at the point of the triangle, begin rolling dough and ingredients into a roll. 
  • Next take the two side points and fold over the roll. 
  • Lay seam side down into baking pan and complete all of your pizza pockets - allowing sides to touch. 
  • Cut three or so slits into the top of each Pizza Pocket for allowing expansion and steam release.
  • Place in oven and bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until golden brown. 
  • Take out of oven and allow to set for 5 minutes.

Bless it...
