Reviews for Padysaurus Pizza Pockets
"The whole family loved it. My daughter is a picky eater and she ate everything but the edges. A fun kid recipe and tasty for everyone."
"I am 8 years old. I chose this recipe for my turn to cook on family night. My whole family loved it so much they couldn't stop eating. This was the first thing I have ever cooked that was homemade."
"These are great. I was looking for something to take to the football game for my family of 6. These are great to throw into a cooler and everyone can grab what they want."
"This recipe has the best pizza dough I have ever found. My kids love to help make the pockets. They fill them whith whatever they like. To save us some $ we make large batch of them in different shapes depending on the filling. After they cool we vacuume seal them individually then freeze them. For a quick lunch you simply have to remove one from the freezer, cut a slit in the bag and microwave for a couple minutes. I have recommended this recipe to all my friends that have kids."
