Mini Pizza Pockets

IMG_0998I love to cook, especially bake.  Another thing I love is simple recipes, with few ingredients. These baked Mini Pizza pockets are so easy, your kids could help you make them. I really like this recipe because it is light enough for a snack or appetizer, but also perfect for a meal for the family.  Versatile, yummy and easy!  I’m all for that.

Ingredients:

  • 1 jar of pizza sauce
  • pepperoni slices cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 12 egg roll wrappers cut in half
  • small cup of water (to seal the egg roll wrappers)
  • Parmesan cheese to sprinkle over the tops of pizza pockets

Preheat oven to 425 F.  Place parchment paper on 2 baking sheets and spray with baking spray.  Mix about half a jar of pizza sauce (more if you like your pizza saucy), 1 cup of cheese and about 3 ounces of the pepperoni in a bowl (you can also do this in layers on the wrappers).  I placed 1 tablespoon of my pizza mixture on one side of my wrapper, then folded the wrapper over and sealed the edges with the water.  You want to press the edges together, the water creates a seal and holds your pockets together.  Place pockets on baking sheet, spray pockets with baking spray, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes.

My family loved this recipe!  I did a few with cheese and sauce only, because I ran out of pepperoni.  You could easily change this recipe up using mushrooms, hamburger, sausage, chicken, or anything you can come up with.
