Lunchbox Food: Pizza Triangles (Freezer Cooking)

School here starts in about 2 weeks So I'm in the process now of getting prepared. Part of me being prepared is making sure I have a good supply of school lunches on hand. Our kids take their lunches to school, and having more then just PB&Js everyday is something they really enjoy. This recipe is super easy and takes less then a half hour to make!

I use my bread machine to make this bread - you could easily use some refrigerated biscuits or frozen bread dough.

Pizza Dough (for bread machine)

1 cup water
2 TBSP vegetable oil
3 cups bread flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

Put everything into the bread machine and turn to the "dough setting".

Additional ingredients needed:

Pizza Sauce
Pepperoni, Hamburger or Sausage
Mozzarella Cheese
Peppers, ect - add any pizza toppings you like!

After the dough is done, I roll is out as thin as I can and cut into triangles. Check out the pictures to see how to assemble these bad boys.

Lay them seam side down onto a greased cookie sheet. Poke three holes on the top of each one, to let the steam escape. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

Let them cool completely. Toss into a freezer bag and into the freezer they go!

This makes about 10 Pizza Triangles for me. I make mine pretty big and usually one of them with some sides are enough for Ashton
The beauty of the Pizza Triangles in that you can put them into your kids lunch that morning and by the time they're ready to eat, it's defrosted and ready to eat.

You can also heat them in the oven in the morning, wrap in foil if the kids would prefer to eat them warm!
