Easy Peezy Pizza Pockets

You will need:

  • 1 can Pillsbury or other brand crescent rolls
  • butter
  • garlic
  • pizza spices
  • mozzarella
  • pizza toppings of your choosing
  • pizza sauce


Mix together a lil butter (about 1 TBSP) and minced garlic in a small oven safe dish. Put it in the oven while you preheat it per your dough can’s instructions. (I believe mine stated 350° for 8-10 minutes)

I used my well worn pizza stone to bake these lil guys. Lay out all your crescent dough in a circle on the pan. Some of them may overlap, just don’t smush them together. 🙂 By the time you are done, your garlic butter should be melted. Either brush or spoon a little onto each piece of dough. Make sure to use all the little garlic  pieces! Mmmm.



Next, mix cheese, spices, and chopped up pizza toppings. I used roma tomatoes, green/orange/yellow peppers, mushrooms, onions, and bacon bits.  You can use pepperoni or whatever you have available, just chop them into little pieces. (Don’t put the sauce in the pocket or the dough will be very mushy. Save it for dipping!) Spoon onto 1 piece of dough and roll the pointy end under the wide end on the other side. Pull up the side pieces  and pinch dough together till you have a little pocket. It’s ok if you have open spots. 🙂 Sprinkle more spices on top and bake for about 15-20 minutes checking once in a while. Remember, even if the top is starting to look golden brown, the dough inside/on the bottom may still be mushy. Be sure to let them cool a few minutes on the pan (continues to cook the bottom of dough pocket). Serve with pizza sauce for dipping!
