Pizza Pockets

Last week we were in a cooking rut so I printed off a bunch of recipes I'd found on Pinterest and we made a big long grocery list. Then we got to cooking! We had some definite misses (steak and blue cheese roll ups and stuffed mushrooms--yuck.) but we also had some real hits. Pizza pockets were one of the hits. We had them for lunch one day and they were delicious so I thought I'd share the recipe with you.

First Keeleigh and Ryland made some pizza sauce using this fantastic recipe but you can use some from a jar if you prefer.

Then Keeleigh took some canned Pillsbury biscuits and rolled them flat using a rolling pin on a floured surface.

Next we spread a little pizza sauce on the flattened biscuits...

and added a couple of pepperoni slices and some shredded cheese.

Then we wrapped the biscuit around the filling pinching it closed at the top. After that you brush the tops with a beaten egg and sprinkle with Parmesan, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.

Bake the pizza pockets at 425 degrees for 18-20 minutes and serve them with some warm pizza sauce for dipping.

I didn't realize until after we baked them that they had the potential to be "pretty." Ha ha! They would make great party food.
