My best tips for helping kids make healthy food choices, plus a quick and easy kid-friendly recipe for Waffled Pizza Pockets.
- 8 fajita size tortillas (whole wheat if you can find them)
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
- 4 tablespoons pizza sauce (or more)
- 1 package turkey pepperoni
- Melted butter, for brushing on waffle iron
Additional Topping Ideas
- Pineapple tidbits
- Black Olives
- Chicken sausage
- Preheat waffle iron.
- In the meantime, assemble your pizza pockets with about 1-2 tablespoons of pizza sauce spread onto one tortilla and 1/4 cup of cheese plus any toppings on the other. Leave a little bit of a border around the edge of the tortilla so that the toppings won’t leak out in the waffle maker.
- When the waffle iron is ready, brush a bit of butter onto the top and bottom plates. This will make the outside of the tortilla nice and crispy.
- Place the tortilla with cheese and toppings on the bottom plate of the waffle maker, then top with the other tortilla.
- Close waffle iron and let the pizza pocket cook until it beeps.
- Remove from the waffle iron, allow to cool slightly, then slice into quarters.
