Pizza Pockets Pin

Sometimes I need a quick lunch idea or a quick snack to make for my starving tween daughter. Lunches can get kind of boring around my house since usually it’s a quick sandwich and some chips. Some days I actually take the time to preheat the oven for a corndog or two.

Pizza pockets solve the boring lunch problem and also make the perfect quick and easy snack!
