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!

  1. Looks yummy, I would add a bunch of mushrooms to mine. My kids hated mushrooms when little but now they like them, I used to sneak in finely chopped veggies under their cheese on their pizzas. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Looks delish! These would be great appetizers for those ‘unexpected’ guests too! I would definitely have to put on this sweet Italian sausage we get at our local butcher shop for shop for sure! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Yum Michelle! These look like the perfect quick & tasty treat! Your recipe sounds perfect the way it is. Although onion and garlic would be a tasty combo in them too. What do you think?

    We just might be trying these in the near future πŸ™‚ Glad you shared them!

    1. Thank you!! I think adding onion and garlic would be so good in these. When I make them again I’ll definitely be adding that plus some green peppers. πŸ™‚ I hope you like them, too!

  4. It’s been so long since I’ve made homemade pizza of any kind! Looks so yummy!
    I’d definitely add some veggies into the mix, like some green peppers, onions and mushrooms.
    And I’d definitely keep in the oregano πŸ™‚

  5. Your Pizza Pockets sound like a great lunch idea. I need to put refrigerated pizza dough on my list to that I can make this for lunch.

I love to hear from you!
