While everyone is heading out to their football games and tailgating parties, my family is gearing up for basketball season. Whatever game day is your family’s favorite, these slam dunk pizza pockets will be the perfect quick dish for your game day get together.
What makes these little pizza pockets so delicious and fun is how portable they are. After making them, I wrap them in Viva® Vantage® Towels , which I picked up at Walmart the day I was preparing to make this recipe.
I bought the huge pack of the 6 double rolls and was happy to see a $1 off coupon on the pack. Anytime I can save on my favorite products, I get excited! (You can save $1 too by downloading a coupon here)
Now — putting these little pizza pockets together takes minutes and in less than 15 total minutes, you will have a delicious snack to share with all your game day buddies!
So here is what you need to start with —
And this is how very simple it is to put these together.
Start with a tortilla and then slather on your pizza sauce. Only put it on half of the tortilla because you are going to fold it.
After you put on your pizza sauce, then sprinkle on your mozzarella cheese. Again, only put it on the side that has the pizza sauce.
Then you get to add your mini pepperonis. Now, you can use regular size pepperoni if you want, but I just love the little mini ones. The Walmart ones have a little kick to them so that add a little spicy flavor to your pizza pocket.
Once you get all your goodies inside your tortilla, then you are going to fold it in half. You can add in other things if you want or omit things you don’t like. These are super easy to create anyway you want to.
I usually do an assembly line to get them all ready at once.
Now, of course when you fold it, some of your pizza sauce is going to ooze a bit out the side and on to your counter. But never fear! With the Viva® Vantage® Towels , clean up is a breeze.
The stretchy fiber-packed sheets are perfect to help you clean up even the toughest of messes and they are soft enough that they feel great while you clean up. The best part? They are so tough that they resist tearing.
Now — let’s get those pizza pockets finished!
Once you get them all folded, simply heat a little butter in a pan and then toast each side until golden brown.
Once they get all golden brown, you simply wrap them with a Viva® Vantage® Towel which will do two thing — 1) It makes your pizza pocket portable without dripping any pizza sauce on you.
2) After eating your pizza pocket, you can use the paper towel to wipe your hands and mouth. It is the perfect way to eat and clean yourself up while watching the big game.
Here is the printable recipe for you.
- 1 package of 6-8 inch tortillas
- 1 jar of pizza sauce
- 1 bag of shredded mozzarella
- 1 bag of mini pepperonis
- Take your tortillas and spread some pizza sauce on one half of the tortilla.
- Then on top of the pizza sauce sprinkle some mozzarella cheese.
- On top of the cheese, sprinkle a few mini pepperonis. Then fold it in half and set it aside.
- In a frying pan on the stove at medium high heat, add a pat of butter and let it melt.
- Once the butter melts, brown both sides and then wrap in a Viva Paper Towel for the perfect game day snack!
