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

  • Ham
  • Pineapple tidbits
  • Black Olives
  • Chicken sausage


  1. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Place the tortilla with cheese and toppings on the bottom plate of the waffle maker, then top with the other tortilla.
  5. Close waffle iron and let the pizza pocket cook until it beeps.
  6. Remove from the waffle iron, allow to cool slightly, then slice into quarters.
