Pizza Pockets

Deneece Gursky Recipe

By Deneece Gursky Smokeygirlxo


My kids love hotpockets so I decided to start making them at home. That way I can fill them with their favorites and make the crust taste mmm mmm good too! I tried several recipes and eventually put together this one from my favorites. These are easy and able to be filled with your favorites. Try em for sleep overs, parties, last minute company.

The original recipe is from pillsbury..I added a few ingredients and the topping for the dough. I also do not lay one sheet of dough on top of the other and slice. I fold the dough over to make pockets instead.

2 cans pillsbury pizza dough
1/4 to 1/2 cup sauce (use your fav marinara, alfredo (for white pizza)or pizza sauce
sliced pepperoni
shredded mozzerella cheese
shredded parmesan cheese
jalepeno peppers diced small (optional)
melted butter
minced onion, garlic, parmesan
black olives, diced onion,

Directions Step-By-Step

Grease a cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Roll out 1 can of dough on floured cookie sheet to a thin rectangle. Cut rectangle in half lengthwise, then cut each half into rectangles.
Brush each rectangle with sauce and add pepperoni,black olives diced small, diced onion mozzerella, parmesan, a sprinkle of oregano and any other toppings you might like.(i love diced jalepenos in mine)
Fold rectangles over into triangle shape and pinch the edges to seal them shut good. Repeat steps above with second can of dough.
Place pockets on cookie sheet and bake in oven about 10 minutes. Remove and brush with melted butter and sprinkle with parmesan, minced onion or garlic or a combination of these. Return to oven and bake until golden about another 5 to 7 minutes.
Serve with marinara or your favorite sauce for dipping

This sounds really good. And from just looking at a few of your posts, I fully trust they will be. I'm going to add this the other "pocket" recipe I find myself using quite often: taco pockets. Thanks!

It's nothing I posted, perhaps someone else has. I learned about these at work. Same basic principal, but using crescent rolls. Prepare hamburger meat with taco seasoning pkt. Put meat mixture and shredded cheddar cheese on the crescent triangle, roll up, pinch edges, and bake for 13-15 min according to pkg directions. Then I let the kids top their own with salsa, sour cream, get the drift :).
