Pizza Pocket Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make this recipe:

  • Refrigerated Pizza Crust – You can use any store-bought refrigerated pizza crust for this recipe.
  • 1/2 cup Pizza Sauce – Pizza sauce or pasta sauce will work.
  • ¾ cup Grated Mozzarella – Pizza mozzarella works best, but feel free to substitute with your favorite cheese.
  • 18 Mini Pepperoni Slices – I used smaller sized pepperoni slices. If you’re using larger ones you can slice them in half.
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano – Sprinkled on top of each pizza pocket.
  • Avocado Oil Spray – My favorite non-stick cooking spray for recipes. Used to spray tops of pizza pockets before cooking.

Kitchen Equipment I Used

Here’s the equipment I used to make this recipe:

  • Large Baking Sheet – I love my Nordic Ware large baking sheet. It allows me to bake more at once!
  • Pizza Cutter – One of my favorite tools for the kitchen. I use it to cut pizzas and slice granola bars.
  • Cheese Grater – Used to grate the parmesan cheese.
  • Parchment Paper: Placed on the baking sheet for easier cleanup. I love to use this unbleached biodegradable parchmemt paper.

How To Make Homemade Pizza Pockets

Here’s an overview of how to make it with the full recipe instructions at the bottom of this blog post.

  1. Dough – Roll out the dough, cut into an even rectangle shape. Use pizza cutter to slice into six squares.
  2. Assemble – Add 1 Tbsp pizza sauce, 2 Tbsp mozzarella cheese and 3 pepperoni slices to the inside of each pizza pocket. Gently fold over and press the edges together with a fork. Spray the top of pizza pockets with cooking spray, sprinkle with dried oregano and mozzarella cheese.
  3. Bake – Bake at 425°F for 10-13 minutes. Crust will start to golden and cheese and sauce will ooze out edges a bit.
  4. Serve – Serve while still warm with more pizza sauce.

Storage: Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days and reheated in the oven to crispen up again. These can also be frozen.
