Pizza Pockets

Recipe Source: 



  1. Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly-floured surface and cut the dough into pairs of roughly 6?-squares.
  2. Pile your filling into the center of a square.
  3. Wet the edges of the square with water, using your finger or a pastry brush, and place another dough square on top.
  4. Press the edges together, crimping them with a fork to seal the pocket.
  5. Place the pockets on a greased baking sheet and bake them at 400 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until the crust is golden.
  6. Remove the pockets from the oven, let them cool for 5 to 10 minutes, and serve them with warmed pizza sauce or another dipping sauce of your choice.


  • You can put the sauce inside the pocket, or serve it warmed on the side for dipping.
  • These are easy to make and a great build-your-own family meal to get your kids involved with cooking.
  • Leftover pizza pockets can be stored in the refrigerator or the freezer in a sealed container.
  • Excess pizza dough will keep for several days in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
