These mini pizza pockets are much better than the frozen kind! Just use your favorite pizza toppings to create a cheesy snack your guests will go crazy for.


  • Pre-made pizza dough- store bought or your favorite crust recipe
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce (plus extra for serving)
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup pepperoni, chopped
  • **Any of your favorite pizza toppings


Step 1:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2:

  • Separate dough into 8 tennis ball sized mounds (making more or less depending on how much pizza dough you have).

Step 3:

  • Roll each mound out flat until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Top one side of the dough with 1 tbsp pizza sauce, 1 tbsp ricotta, 1 tbsp mozzarella, and a sprinkle of pepperoni.

Step 4:

  • Fold the dough over and crease to seal it, cut a slit into the top of the dough to allow air to escape.

Step 5:

  • Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes- or until the tops are a golden brown. Serve with extra pizza sauce or marinara for dipping.
