My kids love pizza like most kids do. I thought a pizza pocket would be a yummy, easy to pack, surprise in their lunchboxes. I decided to do a semi-homemade version using canned crescent roll dough.
1 can of crescent roll dough
1 can of tomato sauce
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Pepperoni (or whatever pizza toppings your kids like!)
Separate the triangular crescent dough along the perforations. Spoon tomato sauce on each triangle. Sprinkle a little oregano and garlic powder on top of the tomato sauce. Add the shredded mozzarella cheese and pepperoni slices. Fold the three ends in towards the middle and pinch together. Bake at 375° for 12 - 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature before placing in your lunchbox. Store them in the refrigerator to use throughout the week or freeze for a later date. They are a perfect make-ahead lunchbox entrée.
Now let's pack them up!
The first lunch in the line up has square pretzels, crinkle cut purple & yellow carrots, two pizza pockets (stacked on top of each other), blueberries, and two Oreo cookies. This lunch is packed in our LunchBots Trio.
Next, in our Monbento Tresor, there are strawberry slices, blueberries, corn cut off the cob, and two pizza pockets.
In our Lego lunchbox we packed orange pepper rings, two pizza pockets (stacked), and cantaloupe melon balls.
The last lunch is packed up in our book bento box. It contains two pizza pockets, grape tomatoes, strawberries, and blueberries.
