How to Make Homemade Pizza Pockets

Created January 10, 2017
Did you know that pizza pockets are a cinch to make at home? And they’re perfect for lunch boxes!

“Mom, can I take this to school?” That’s the request my six-year-old son made after I made a big batch of pizza pockets. They aren’t complicated to make, but they are totally kid-friendly and perfect for school. I start by making a simple three-ingredient dough including Bisquick. You mix it, divide it and roll it into ultra-thin disks that you then fill them with your favorite pizza toppings. Pinch the edges to seal, then bake to golden in the oven.

Although these are best served warm, there is a way to make sure your child’s pizza pocket is just right come lunchtime at school. If your child can access a microwave at school, they can reheat the pocket, wrapped in a paper towel, in 30 to 45 seconds or until the filling is hot. (Please note that microwaves vary in strength so sandwiches may take more or less time than indicated to become hot in center.)
