These homemade hot pockets were created in connection with Red Gold Tomatoes. Red Gold compensated me for the time required to create this recipe and share it with you. All opinions are always my own. Thank you for supporting my blog by reading about brands I use and love in my own home. 

Okay so “homemade” is being used loosely here. We’ll just clear the air of that before anyone gets too riled up. To keep this recipe easy, kid-friendly, and four ingredients, I used canned biscuit dough. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. And let’s be real, the stuff is delicious!

I remember growing up (middle school maybe?), I would go over to a friend’s house after school and have pepperoni pizza hot pockets and Mountain Dew while watching R-rated movies. In middle school! Which, may I add, is literally the worst thing I have ever done. My parents did a great job keeping this girl on the straight and narrow. I hope watching R-rated movies in middle school is the worst thing my kids ever do, too. Not that I want to them to do that, but you know. You get it, right?

PS: I’m pretty sure R-rated movies have changed drastically since I was in middle school. I recall them being much more tame than they are now.

Speaking of kids, this recipe was made with my kids in mind. They love all things pizza (what kid doesn’t?) and I wanted to create a recipe that we could prepare together (or at least I assumed they would love it….read on…). I tried to create a homemade hot pocket, although I haven’t had one since middle school so I can’t promise they’re a perfect copycat, but I can promise you don’t have to put them in a creepy silver and cardboard tube in the microwave. These are definitely doughier than your traditional store-bought Hot Pocket, thanks to the use of biscuit dough. This was intentional, because doughier = better.
