Summer is coming, which means a number of things. It’s time to install air conditioners, bring up the dreaded box of swimwear from the basement, and of course, mentally prepare for the kids to be home for the season.

As you well know, growing kids get hungry, especially when they’re running around all day instead of sitting at their desks at school.

You may not have to pack their school lunches anymore, but sandwiches are replaced with the need for other forms of sustenance.

On this episode of the Hostess Next Door, Chef Vanessa Cantave teamed up with professional bargain hunter Sarah Hardy, founder of the blog Sensational Finds. This dream team is here to bring us a winning meal idea that will keep both a hungry mom and hungrier kids happy all summer.

Homemade pizza pockets are a crowd pleaser for a plethora of reasons. First of all, they are easy to make, take 10 to 12 minutes to cook, and involve pizza. Need I say more?

In fact, this recipe is so simple that your kids will even be able to make them. Can you think of a better way to enjoy a summer lunch than kicking back while your kids do all the work? Don’t worry — mess and clean up are minimal.

Cook: 12 min
Prep: 5 min
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 8 oz. can of Crescent Rolls
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 12 cup marinara sauce
  • 14 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 375 °F.
  • Begin by rolling out the dough. Separate the dough so that you have 4 squares (rather than triangles). Using your fingers, press the perforated area together. Dust with flour and gently roll out the dough.
  • Place a thin layer of marinara sauce on one side of the dough and top with the cheeses. Fold the other side of the dough on top and punch the edges using a fork.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden. The filling will be hot, so allow to cool before serving. Enjoy!
