We’ve already shared with you our method of making pizza just a little bit healthier: the tortilla pizza. But now we’re taking that to a whole new level with the pizza pocket. It may look simple, but trust us: this is so tasty and spectacular you will want to eat it every night of the week.

These are so gooey and melty and just fantastic. The type of cheese you use will definitely make a difference, so if you don’t like red Leicester go for something similar. Cheddar or gruyere could be great alternatives, and shredded mozzarella would have a stringy effect too.
