Perfect meal prep and freezer safe makes these homemade pockets better than store bought! These little pockets stuffed with the good stuff are perfect for kids lunches, or pizza night. This recipe uses fathead dough which I also use to make my keto pizza crust.  It is so tasty!. The filling I used for these pockets was marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni.  You could easily make these ham and cheddar or whatever you like!

These look complicated but they are actually quite easy.  The fathead dough is ready much quicker than traditional pizza crust.
