Recipe: Pizza Pockets

A few weeks ago I made up a recipe for lunch. I had opened the refrigerator and was so uninspired by what was there. I mean, it was all good stuff... but I was craving something a little different. When all hope seemed lost, I caught sight of a few items we had purchased planning to use them at some point. I was inspired (and hungry) so I made up this recipe for pizza pockets.

-freshly grated mozzarella cheese
-garlic in olive oil (optional)
-tomato or meat sauce
-precut pepperonis
-butter biscuits
-dried herbs such as rosemary, thyme, and oregano.

{Step 1} Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees. Pop open your can of biscuits and flatten them out on a plate or cutting board. You can use your hands or a rolling pin.

{Step 2} With a spoon, dollop on your tomato or meat sauce on half of the biscuit. Drizzle on a bit of garlic oil. It's okay if you get a few flecks of garlic in your pocket.

{Step 3} Sprinkle on your mozzarella cheese and your herbs. 

{Step 4} Place two pepperonis on top of the cheese.

{Step 4} Carefully flip over the other half of your biscuit (the half without ingredients) and with a fork, press down the edges of the biscuit.

{Step 5} Repeat the process with the remaining biscuits and place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until brown. 

So, in five easy steps you've got a delicious meal that could be eaten for lunch or could double as dinner and served with a salad. You could even do this recipe assembly-line style and cut down your prep time. My family loves this recipe and since the little sister is so find of pizza, she likes when I surprise her with a batch of my pizza pockets.


  1. Yum!
    I'm gonna have to make these sometime!
    My Mom used to make homemade pizza pockets but,
    they were more in the shape of a muffin.
    She cooked them in muffin pans.

    These look even better!

    Thanks for posting this!

  2. Ohh! These look so yummy. They kinda look like empanadas:)

  3. We made the same thing in cooking class except we called them calazones. :)
