These are essentially made the same but with pizza toppings instead and you can use whatever toppings you prefer for yours too.  I love to use recipes like this to help the kids learn how to cook, it’s an easy one to teach the kids to make.

Tips for Making Air Fryer Pizza Pockets:

These work the best if you flip them about halfway through the cooking time.  It’s also important to note that all air fryers heat differently, which means what works for mine, may not be the same cooking time for yours.

That’s the downside of air fryer recipes, trying to figure out the heat that each one puts off.  I have found it’s best to start with 8 minutes total and go up from there to 10 minutes.  If needed, you can also cut them in half to get the inside fully cooked.

Another tip for this recipe is that you will use 2 biscuits for 1 pocket.  That means a can of 8 biscuits, will make 4.  I like to use the larger biscuits such as the Pillsbury Grands biscuits.  

The biscuits will be flattened out and you will use 2 of them for 1 pocket. They may separate a bit during cooking, but I try my best to get them sealed well with the end of a fork.

Now, let’s enjoy lunch!
