  • 1 package of refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 cup of your favorite pizza sauce
  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup of diced pepperoni or your preferred pizza toppings
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of dried basil
  • Optional: additional toppings such as sliced bell peppers, onions, olives, or mushrooms


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface and cut it into rectangles, approximately 4×6 inches in size.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, garlic powder, dried oregano, and dried basil to create a flavorful seasoning blend.
  4. Spread a spoonful of pizza sauce onto one half of each rectangle of dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
  5. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce, then add your desired toppings such as diced pepperoni or vegetables.
  6. Fold the dough over the filling to create a pocket and press the edges firmly to seal. You can use a fork to crimp the edges for a decorative touch.
  7. Place the assembled pizza pockets onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each one.
  8. Brush the tops of the pizza pockets with the seasoned olive oil mixture for added flavor and a golden finish.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Once baked, remove the pizza pockets from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
  11. Serve warm with additional pizza sauce or your favorite dipping sauce on the side, and enjoy the cheesy goodness!
