Pizza Pockets - Lunchtime solved!

Do you have major restrictions about what you can send your kiddies to pre-school with?  Or maybe you work and need a snack or lunch to get you through the week.  It's always nice to have a little something in the freezer when the groceries run out and you just can't get to the store.

Enter Pizza Pockets!  Yummy & take about 15 minutes and four ingredients to make.





Ingredients:
1 can refrigerated pizza dough
pizza sauce
1 chicken breast, diced (just boil one or use a refrigerated ready to go kind)
1 Cup or so shredded, mixed italian cheeses
feel free to add spinach, mushrooms, pepporini, ham & pineapple, etc - whatever you like on your pizza

Step 1:  Preheat oven to 425. Unroll your pizza crust onto a baking sheet and cut it into 8 sections like so:





Step 2:  spread about a tablespoon of sauce onto the center & add the chicken, cheese and any other toppings.





Step 3:  Fold the pockets up by folding the top & bottom in first & then rolling from one side.  Pinch your seams at the end & put it back on the sheet seam side down.  I tried to give you a progression picture:



Step 4:  Now bake at 425 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown.  Allow to cool, wrap up individually in aluminum foil & freeze in a ziploc bag.  To use, defrost overnight in the fridge or heat on half power in the microwave.  They're great warm, but aren't too shabby a little cool if you can't heat them up at work or school.


Now, some pictures of our Rainy Day (day 3 of rain, I might add - better be sunny tomorrow!)
