Mini Pizza Pockets

So today my mom was having some technical difficulties and was unable to join us in the culinary laboratory. As much as I enjoyed having her cook last weekend I knew was ready for her to do it again. But as much as I have become a Pinterest fanatic I have plenty recipes up this girl's sleeve! And besides... this is MY blog... the show must go on right?
When I realized I would have some readers looking for another recipe I began to rack my brain. I'm low on cash and I have alot of things in the cupboard but nothing I really had a taste for. Then my ravenous 7 year old son comes into the kitchen and grabs a bag of pepperoni minis from the fridge. Then I realized I still had a small piece of that mozzarella wheel from last week- and some marinara from another pasta dish we had on Thursday. And then there's the lonely crescent rolls in the refrigerator drawer. Light bulb!

I shuffled through my pinboards and after 5 minutes of drooling over the delicious looking recipes I decided I would be on there all day pinning recipes if I didn't put the phone down immediately. I went with 

 Mini Pizza Pockets
For Topping:
2 Tblsp Parmesan Cheese
1/8 tsp Oregano
1/8 tsp garlic powder
*mix all these together in a ramekin or other small bowl

For Pockets:
1 can Crescent Rolls
1 oz Mozzarella Cheese
1 Tblsp Marinara sauce
1 pkg Hormel Pepperoni Minis

Preheat oven to 375 degrees 
Roll crescent rolls out flat on a greased cookie sheet
With a small spoon smear just a dab of marinara sauce on the wide end of the crescent and top with a thin slice of mozzarella and about 10 to 15 pepperoni

Once you've got all your filling piled high fold fold loose corners over and gently roll the crescent halfway, the n pull the small end over to close it completely. Grab your topping and sprinkle generously over each pocket

Pop these babies in the oven and cook for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.... then watch out for ravenous beasts!

This is my kid friendly recipe for the week. I've got a pork roast in the crock pot right now and tomorrow it will be chopped BBQ. I can hardly wait! Hope you like these pockets. My kids loved them and they were so simple, quick and easy to make. I'll be back later this week with more recipes. I kinda like the food blogs! Happy eating loves!
