“While my kids really love pizza, they're all very picky about their toppings and it seems like they each want something different. That's why I love these Pita Pizza Pockets - they're super easy to make, the kids enjoy helping to make their own, and everybody gets exactly what they want in them. I cut the pitas in half, cooked the sausage and assembled the other ingredients on the table in advance then called the kids in to let them help put their own pizza pockets together before I popped them in the oven. They only take a few minutes and the kids had a blast helping make their own dinner.”
