opening up a Pizza Bomb with melty cheese

My kids love pizza and this was a fun take on the usual!  These also make great lunches because, just like pizza pockets, the kids can just pop them in their lunch and heat them up for 30 seconds before eating!

If you’re putting different ingredients in them, save a tiny piece to put on top and that makes it easy to tell what’s inside of each one!  You can use shredded or cubed mozzarella cheese for these!

The easiest way to seal the biscuits is to fold it like a taco, pinch the edges shut and then bring the corners under to make it round.  When you bake them, you might see a little bit of cheese leak out of some of them, don’t worry, there will still be lots left inside!
