In an attempt to make this week a little easier, I made two different kinds of pocket sandwiches- the Ham and Cheese Pockets, and these Pepperoni Pizza Pockets.

Both of them use the same Bread Machine Pizza Dough recipe so I didn’t need to buy extra ingredients besides the toppings, and they’re both incredibly simple to make.

The only problem is that my bread machine won’t handle a double batch of the dough, so I did it in two separate days. But you could probably use a stand mixer to fit it all.

So these Pepperoni Pizza Pockets are made the exact same way as the Ham and Cheese Pockets. After the dough’s finished, cut it into 6 equal pieces and let them sit under a towel for about an hour.

Once they’ve risen, roll each piece into a flat circle and add pepperoni and mozzarella cheese on one half. You could add other favorite toppings as well, but be sure not to fill it too full.

I always put my pizza sauce on the side for dipping, but you could put a little bit inside the pocket, too.

Carefully fold the top over and pinch the edges to seal, then place on a greased cookie sheet. Ten minutes in the oven and they’re ready to eat!

I wish I could say Allison liked these. I only put cheese in hers and told her it was basically a pizza sandwich.

Nope. She likes grilled cheese but won’t eat this. What is it about 5 year-olds?

They’re delicious, though, and freezer-friendly just like the Ham and Cheese Pockets. I love making them!

Ingredients

For the pizza dough (Use a can of pizza dough instead if desired)

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups flour (all-purpose or whole wheat)
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast

For the Pizza Pockets

  • 1 5-ounce package pepperoni
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • (Optional) Other favorite pizza toppings
  • 1 jar pizza sauce

Instructions

  1. (If making the dough) In a bread machine, add all dough ingredients in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Use the Pizza Dough setting, about 50 minutes.
  2. When the dough is finished, separate into 6 equal pieces and let them rise under a towel for an hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Roll out each ball into a flat circle and add about 10 pepperonis and 1/4 cup cheese to one half, along with optional toppings.
  5. Carefully fold the top over and pinch the edges to seal. Place on a greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the dough is firm. Serve with pizza sauce on the side for dipping.

Notes

To freeze, place the pockets on a cookie sheet in the freezer. Once completely frozen, transfer to a gallon-sized freezer bag.

To reheat, let the pockets thaw completely and cook in either the microwave or a toaster oven.
