Monday Meal – Easy Pizza Pockets!

Monday Meal – Easy Pizza Pockets!

Dinner is so simple when you make these yummy pockets!

final pizza

I used to make these little guys all the time but then . . . the dough balls were discontinued, ahhh! Well, just the other day I was at the store and I almost jumped for joy in the freezer section when I saw them! Yay, you are back! I missed you whole wheat dough balls!  I like using these whole wheat rolls because the dough is already at the correct portion size! Roll out the dough and stuff some goodies inside and dinner is done!  Let me show you just how simple it really is!

I will call them pizza pockets according to Pioneer Women.  She says a pizza pocket has sauce whereas a calzone has a ricotta mixture.  Who knew?  I just used ingredients that I had in my frig and that is the beauty of this recipe, you can use whatever you have leftover! 

First I sauté peppers, onions and garlic.

Add sauce, Canadian bacon (this was the only precooked meat I had available but use whatever you would like!!) and oregano.

Roll out dough and top with sauce mixture.

Fold together like a taco.

A fork does a great job in keeping these little pockets together.


Top with a little cheese, usually I brush with an egg white and top with Parmesan but I was in a hurry and didn’t have any Parmesan!  I know . . . just horrible!

The dough is so amazingly good!  So easy! This is nothing fancy but as a busy mom that needs to get dinner on the table, this is a great quick recipe that everyone loves!

2/3 cup shredded cheese

1 large pepper, diced

1/4 onion, diced

1 tbsp garlic, chopped

1 tbsp oregano, chopped



Preheat oven to 375 degree. On a countertop sprinkled with flour, roll out each biscuit to a 4-by-3-inch oval and set aside.  In a sauce pan, sauté peppers, onions, and garlic for 2 minutes.  Add sauce, oregano and meat and combine mixture.   Place mixture on top of dough.  Top with cheese and fold.  Use a fork to “staple” the dough.  Top with additional cheese.  Bake for 20 minutes.
