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.
1 can refrigerated pizza dough
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.
