Kick up your next pizza night with homemade pizza pockets or calzones. Your family and guests can build their own, including only their favorite ingredients.
We love having build your own pizza pockets because Zack and Kayla can stuff theirs with peppers, onions, and the like; while Kelsie and I can enjoy just plain pepperoni and cheese.
These make great leftovers as well. Make a batch and heat them up throughout the week for quick lunches or a cheaper then fast food dinner. Plus who doesn’t love pizza pockets? I can see these created in a smaller variety for yummy summer snacks!
