The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Pepperoni Pizza Pockets (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

  • Refrigerated pizza crust – we used Pillsbury, but you can use a store brand if you prefer.
  • Pasta or pizza sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese or cheese sticks – either works well! We used mozzarella cheese sticks, but shredded mozzarella is also great.
  • Pepperoni
  • Olive oil – you’ll just need enough to brush over the top of each pizza pocket.
  • Italian seasoning or dried oregano – this adds a little extra flavor to the pizza pockets.
