Cook time: 10 minutesĀ 

Yield: 10 pizza pockets * 14-oz jar prepared pizza sauce
* 1 cup frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
* 1/2 cup 2% shredded 3-cheese mix (such as Kraft)
* 1/4 cup finely chopped pepperoni (optional)
* 2 cans (7.5 oz each) refrigerated biscuits (such as Pillsbury)
* 1 egg, slightly beaten, with 1 tsp water

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Combine 1/2 cup pizza sauce, broccoli, cheese, and pepperoni, if using, in a medium bowl.

3. Flatten each biscuit into a 3-inch round circle, and top half of each with a heaping tablespoon of the broccoli mixture. Fold empty side of biscuit over the mixture. Press the edges with a fork to seal.

4. Place the pizza pockets on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush each pocket with some of the egg mixture, and pierce a small hole in the top of each one. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with remaining pizza sauce.
