Homemade pizza pockets recipe

Makes 8 servings


  • 1 packet rapid rise dry yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water (around 110 degrees F)
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (15-oz.) can prepared pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella and cheddar mix
  • ½ cup chopped mushrooms
  • ½ cup chopped pepperoni
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1-2 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Stir in the sugar, salt and olive oil. Slowly stir in both wheat flour and all-purpose flour until dough starts to form. Using hands, knead dough for a few minutes and form into a ball. Leave in bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place for 15-30 minutes (next to the warming oven is a great option).

Divide dough into eight balls. Roll out each ball on a floured surface into a flat circle. Divide the pizza sauce, vegetables and cheese between the eight circles and spread on each circle evenly. Be sure to leave a small space around the edges. Fold each circle in half and, using a fork, press down around the edges to seal together.

Place onto a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Then spray the top of each pizza pocket lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with garlic powder.

Bake in oven for 16-18 minutes until golden brown on the outside but not hard and crispy.
