What’s easier than a Hot Pocket (er, a Skinny Hot Pocket)? Not much. Hot Pockets require little time and preparation. But Hot Pockets just aren’t good for you, as tasty as they are. And while I can’t promise you two minutes in the microwave, I can promise you something that will taste, look and satisfy just like a Hot Pocket can!When this baby was cooking in the oven, I continued to check it every half-minute or so. My mouth was watering terribly. I’ve told you before that pizza is my absolute favorite food, and crust is my favorite part of my favorite food, and Hot Pockets . . . well . . . they have TWO crusts. Does it get better?Rhetorical. No it does not.So when making your homemade Skinny Hot Pocket, you’ll need some pizza necessities:
Cutting Board I Pizza Night Cookbook I Pizza Server I Fig Kitchen Towels I Fig Oven Mitten I Red Pepper & Parmesan Shakers I Faux Plant I Pizza Serving Tray and 1/2 Circle Cutter I Pizza Oven I Marble Serving Board
Favorites? I love my oval cutting board (I don’t have the marble one, but want it). Not only does it look beautiful and totally professional, but it also does the trick. Also a favorite is the cookbook Pizza Night by Williams-Sonoma, my favorite store. Lastly, hello pizza oven, you beautiful invention. I have you and I love you. Marry me.
