‘My two-year-old son and I made these today, they are delish! He is so so proud of his creation,’ she said in Kmart Air Fryer Recipes Australia Facebook group.
To make the dough, she used Greek yoghurt and self raising flour – and she filled them with the cheese, tomato paste and ham filling.
‘Mix dough together, separate into equal parts. Roll flat, add filling. Close dough into a ball shape. Cook on 180 for about 10 to 15 minutes [in the air dryer],’ she said.
‘The hardest part was closing them up with out the dough getting too thick.’

Many were quick to compliment the woman for sharing her easy recipe, while others said pizza pockets are the perfect snack to make with the kids during the coronavirus isolation.
‘Isolation wouldn’t be so bad with these,’ one mother said.
A second said: ‘It’s great to get kids involved in the kitchen (with supervision) and even if its not the greatest u still praise them – oh and eat it.’
Another mother said she made her own pizza pockets filling them with pizza sauce, shredded chicken and cheese.
