Trying to find new and fun ways for my kids to eat more than garbage is not as easy as I thought it would be. Thank goodness for Pinterest and the billion ideas that are shared on there. That’s exactly where I found this recipe for simple homemade pizza pockets.

We love pizza around our house! Maybe a Little Caesars deep dish every night for dinner isn’t the best option for growing little kids. But what is better for them and easy for me to make? Well, these simple pizza pockets are definitely not the worst thing they could be eating, and they are so easy to make.

I’m not kidding when I say your kids will love these because if you’re like me you will love them too and might need to make two packs.
