My kids love and devour Hormel Pepperonis so I thought why thought throw a party out of it? This party has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. As always, thank you for supporting this blog! #PepItUp #CollectiveBias
I don’t know about you, but by the time my daughter comes home from school, she is always hungry and asks for a snack. It’s such a awkward time at 3:30 in the afternoon when you’re just a few hours away from dinner time so you don’t want your child to eat a hefty meal and not be hungry for dinner, but you don’t want to give her something little that won’t satisfy her for a few hours. So I made a quick and easy pizza pocket and zucchini pizzas and they were so perfect for her and her friends after school! These two recipes were perfect because not only are they filling but not hefty, but they are super easy and fast and who wants to cook a meal before making the real meal which is dinner? Not me!
My daughter was so excited to help me decorate for the party and came up with the designs herself! She also decorated the table with sea shells and blue and green rocks, treasure chest and her mermaids to give it a “Under the Sea” feel to the party. I think she did a wonderful job decorating it, don’t you think? I made the flowers using the crepe paper on a white paper plate. I glued the first layer of crepe paper and pressed down to the glue as I ruffled the paper, in a round circle until all the white paper area was filled.
1. Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough onto cookie sheet; separate into 4 rectangles (2 triangles each). Press each rectangle to form a 6×4-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations to seal.
2. Spread 1 tablespoon pizza sauce on half of each rectangle to within 1 inch of edge. Sprinkle each with 3 tablespoons cheese; top with 6 slices pepperoni. Fold dough from the top over filling; firmly press edges with fork to seal. Sprinkle each rectangle with 1/4 teaspoon grated cheese. With fork, prick top of each to allow steam to escape.
3. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until deep golden brown. Serve warm.
