Appetizers

Baby Pizza Pockets

These babies came about because I had leftovers.  For some reason, I bought a 4-pack of biscuits at the store for a recipe because, you know, it was on sale.  That can of biscuits mocked me for two months.  Then I had leftover pasta sauce.  You know, the amount that you have left after using a jar for two rounds of spaghetti but not so little to justify throwing it away.  Then I had leftover pepperoni, which I never have because I did some quick cheese cube/pepperoni on toothpick appetizers for a gathering because I’m old school like that.  I also had leftover zucchini from another recipe, about three slices worth.  I decided to kill  four birds with one stone and make these baby pizza pockets!  (No birds were actually killed…I shouldn’t have to put that but yeah.)

These are the perfect after school snack for the kiddos or a great appetizer for game day or any other gathering you can think of.  (Or if you’re feeling it, just make up a batch and split ’em with your honey because some nights apps are about all you’ve got in ya.)  The egg wash let’s them bake up golden brown and you can customize them to be all veggie if you’ve got a non-meat eater in the house.

The video shows you how to bring it all together and what the recipe should look like in different stages.
