Pizza Pockets

Is today the day that I'll reach 100 followers? 

If you've been to any type of gathering/ celebration at my house, you have probably eaten my pizza pockets.  Honestly, I can't even remember where I first got the recipe, but I've been making them for years.  They are fast, easy, cheap and a hit w/ the kiddos.

You will need: canned biscuits (the cheap ones that come in a four pack not the fancy "Grands" ones)
pizza sauce
Parmasan  and Mozzarella cheese
Any other pizza toppings of your choice-you could even sneak in some veggies
(bbq chicken is yummy)
Preheat the over to 375
 I've found it works best if I chop up the pepperoni a little.  Then I add a few spoonfuls of sauce and cheese and mix it all together. This isn't a measuring type of recipe.
Next pop open the can of biscuits (the best part). Take one and flatten it a bit with your hand.  Add about a teaspoon of the mixture.
Fold it over to make a little turnover. You can either pinch it closed w/ your fingers or be fancy and use a fork.  You can baste w/ butter (I usually don't b/c they are already high in fat)and sprinkle w/ garlic salt before baking for 8-10 minutes.
Serve w/ leftover sauce.

They are also great to pack in the kid's lunches. 

Of course, you could make them w/ actual bread dough, but I rarely have any handy.
 Thanks for stopping by.

 According to the "stats" I have several visitors a day from other countries.  In case you have never heard of canned biscuits-click .
