These crescent roll pizza pockets take only about 5 minutes to make, and they are so yummy.  These can also be made many different ways, using different fillings. Ham and cheese is also great, and I imagine peanut butter and jelly wouldn't be horrible.

Step 1: Ingredients and Equipment

There really aren't any measurements for the ingredients. Just add how much you like, and whatever you like. This is just the list of ingredients that I used for this Instructable.

-Crescent rolls (I used reduced fat)
-Mozzerella cheese
-Parmesan cheese
-Pizza sauce, for dipping

Equipment needed: 

-Cutting board, cutting mat, cookie sheet, plate, or anything else on which to assemble the pocket of deliciousness.
-Waffle iron
Genius! Now I have a reason to buy a waffle iron! Wife be damned!
that is just awesome, i want some. SHARE < 3 !!!!!!!!!!! RAWR
Nice... I think I'll just do it in my George Foreman but thanks for the idea.
Amazingly good when you use your own dough (made using a bread machine) and your own sauce (made using a crockpot). I even got a decent picture of one of our many successful trial runs.
Whoops, didn't finish uploading the picture...
BRILLIANT! Gonna buy a waffle iron tomorrow and try this!
Have you got your waflle maker now? Consider this <a href="http://www.bizchum.com/item.cfm?itemid=11924" rel="nofollow">cheap waffle maker</a>.
Great idea but I have a cheap waffle iron and it doesn't cook evenly :(
It's time to get a new yet cheaper <a href="http://www.bizchum.com/item.cfm?itemid=11924" rel="nofollow">waffle maker</a>.
I've found this is the best way to make grilled cheese. I just put cheese between two slices of bread, stick it into the iron, and put a weight on it. It makes the bread and the cheese merge into one delicious brick of deliciousness.
This great. My husband &amp; I love it.
This would make a really filling party snack. Mmmmm! :P
Using a waffle iron to grill hamburgers works great, with the waffle pattern on the meat, the condiments stay in place, and they cook quick, I used to make them for my kids, when they were small.
I just made these and am eating them as I type. They are <strong><em>Awesome!</em></strong> Thanks for the great 'ible!<br />
And a picture. They were peperoni and cheese, but I used canned pillsbury pizza dough instead of croissant dough.<br />
I'm doing a blog called Waffleizer with a lot of recipes like this, including one for a <a href="http://www.waffleizer.com/waffleizer/2010/01/waffleburgers.html" rel="nofollow">waffleburger (with cheese)</a>.&nbsp;
I saw your blog, and made the waffled hash browns. They were <strong><em>Waffleicious!</em></strong> I am looking forward to these pizza pockets!<br />
I don't have a waffle iron, but I do have a panini grill. I wonder if it will work just as well?<br />
&nbsp;these are amazing just made some thanks amazing idea
&nbsp;Wow, this was a really great idea. &nbsp;I went to the store to buy the crescent rolls, and made them. &nbsp;Instead of doing the pizza pocket as you did, I made it breakfast style. &nbsp;I had some slab bacon in the fridge, sauteed it, and made some scrambled eggs too. &nbsp;It turned out delicious. Thank you.
i am going to try this, i do think peanut butter and jelly would be so friggin good!<br />
&nbsp;Ive always wondered what other uses I could use my waffle iron for. this looks like a&nbsp;delicious&nbsp;idea! Pizza&nbsp;waffles&nbsp;for the game night!
Quick question... There was no mention of greasing or oiling the waffle iron before dropping the pocket in. Should I assume it's not necessary due to the ingredients in the dough?<br />
Actually I did mention it, it's in step 2, second sentence. But, to answer your question here, no you don't need to oil the iron, the dough usually has enough oil in it, to make it come out easily.
I was distracted by the anticipation of deliciousness! :-)<br />
&nbsp;You can also use the waffle iron to cook bacon with less grease and missed spots. Check Alton Brown of Food Network. His idea,
Yes, thank you for posting that!&nbsp;I&nbsp;just watched the video on that a few days ago, and have been meaning to post it, but haven't, obviously. As soon as I get some bacon (haven't been grocery shopping in a while) I&nbsp;will try it and post the results. Thanks again for reminding me!
&nbsp;Ummm, you're filling this full of pepperoni, mozzarella, and parmesan. Why reduced fat crescent rolls?
Good question. No reason for it really, I&nbsp;just only buy reduced fat crescent rolls. It's what I&nbsp;had on hand. If I&nbsp;had the regular ones, that's what I&nbsp;would have used.
This is a brilliant idea! Somewhere I have a recipe for waffle cookies, but I never would have thought of waffle pizza pockets. <br /> <br /> You are a genius. Now to find my waffle iron.<br />
&nbsp;waffle cookies I might want to try that. &nbsp;just cookie dough in the iron?
Read this, went to the store, now enjoying. This rocks. Thanks for sharing!&nbsp;
&nbsp;im sitting at the comp eating one, its GREAT!!!!
They looks GREAT!!<br /> i come from italy and i would like to try them!<br /> But we don't have crescent roll&nbsp; (or other ready product for this stuff)<br /> there is a fast way to make tha stuff at home?!<br /> like flour water butter or oliven oil yeast... and what more?!<br /> the iron will be able to cook them?!( if i make the fake crescent roll i mean...)<br /> <br /> Thanks!<br /> bye!<br />
If you're asking what you can use other than crescent rolls...you can make a homemade pizza crust and I'm sure it would have close to the same results. I&nbsp;don't have a recipe for homemade pizza crust that I&nbsp;like, but I'm sure you could find something online.
THANKS!<br />
&nbsp;i tried to make a couple versions for breakfast with eggs and ham- and with cream cheese and jam Great idea man!
ok now i hate you more lol i&nbsp; went through 3 tubes of&nbsp; cresent rolls , i made one like n hour ago lol<br />
&nbsp;My father used to make our grilled cheese sandwiches in the waffle iron and I loved the extra crunchiness. You can find the old sandwich makers at thrift shops if you don't have a waffle iron. it won't be as flat and crunchy, but you can go ahead and add the sauce before cooing. A Foreman grill would work as well..<br /> &nbsp;We've seen various sizes of waffle irons at thrift shops, too. Some of the larger ones have griddles that can be removed and flipped so you have a flat surface on top &amp; botton instead of the waffle.<br />
Great idea! I'm going to do this as a cub scout activity! Thanks.
I've seen cookies made this way too...(then you put Ice Cream in them!)<br />
&nbsp;I saw this and then went straight from my computer to the grocery store. They were delicious, thanks a lot!
That's dedication. I'm glad you liked them!&nbsp;Ham and cheese is yummy in it!
Taco flavour would be my pick :D<br /> <br /> I&nbsp;haven't grilled a sandwich in a long time.&nbsp; Time to bust out the grill!<br />
About the peanut butter and jelly?&nbsp; It is awesome.&nbsp; The peanut butter melts and just blends with the jelly.&nbsp; Just let it cool a few minutes before eating.<br /> <br /> I&nbsp;would imagine that frozen pizza dough would work for this as well.&nbsp; Just not as flat.<br />
&nbsp;:D wow!<br /> it looks delicious!!<br /> i'm hungry now! O_O
That looks delicious. I'm glad I just had my fill of goat tacos, or I would have to make a mess in the kitchen trying this.<br />
Cool idea with the crescent rolls !&nbsp; I&nbsp;don't have a waffle maker but I bet my george forman sandwich grill will work... Thankd for the idea
&nbsp;looks good.
i hate you.. im starving right now&nbsp; and i don't have the roll dough. also i don't think my waffle maker would work because its the round ones that requires you to close n flip the heating part n it rnesdds to be pushed down really hard so idk if it would work<br />
