  • 1 batch of homemade pizza dough
  • 1/2 pound mozzarella cheese
  • 3 oz pepperoni or any toppings you would love
  • 1 cup tomato sauce


  1. Make a batch of homemade whole wheat pizza dough to start. It is great to make a batch of dough and freeze to have ready to go when you want to make pizza pockets or pizza rolls.
  2. Take half of the dough and roll it out. It is ok to roll the dough a little thin for these. They taste better when the dough is a little thinner.
  3. Take a round pie cutter, mine was a gift but here is a similar one. Cut out as many circles in the whole wheat dough as possible.
  4. Next place about a table spoon of sauce on half of the circles. Then place a slice of mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce and lastly add some pepperoni. These can be filled with whatever toppings you love on your pizza. Let your imagination run wild. However, since these were for the kids, I just kept it simple.
  5. Not take the halves with no toppings and place on top. Line them up and press using the whole press. For a better stick, wet the edges to seal. I didn't do this and they turned out great. After the first batch is made, roll out the second batch to make more.
  6. Place on a pizza stone or lined cookie sheet and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 12 minutes or until dough is fully cooked. They are ready to eat right then or you can freeze them for snacks later.

  9. After they have cooled, place them in a freezer safe container and freeze. Whenever the hunger monster arises with your kids, simply place one pizza pocket in the microwave for about one minute. These pizza pockets come out perfect every time.
