Whether it’s for a quick snack after school, or even a 15 minute dinner, not only are these pizza pockets a healthier alternative to store bought, but can be fun to make too.

What you will need:

-1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

cup pizza sauce

cup shredded mozzarella cheese,

cup sliced pepperoni (24 slices)

-1 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese.
1. Heat oven to 375°F.

2. Unroll dough onto cookie sheet, cut into 4 rectangles (2 triangles each). Firmly press each rectangle to form a 6×4-inch rectangle.

3. Spread 1 tablespoon pizza sauce on half of each rectangle to within 1 inch of edge. Sprinkle each with 3 tablespoons mozzarella cheese; top with 6 slices pepperoni.

4. Fold dough from the top over filling; firmly press edges with fork. Sprinkle each rectangle with 1/4 teaspoon grated parmesan cheese. With fork, prick top of each to allow steam to escape.

5. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until deep golden brown. Serve warm.
