Ingredients You’ll Need For Our Homemade Pizza Pockets Recipe:

- Pizza sauce
- Shredded mozzarella cheese

How To Make Our Homemade Pizza Pockets Recipe:
Start early by reading the directions on the back of the package to thaw out the rolls.
Once they are thawed out, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
After the rolls are thawed (but not risen) stretch out each roll and lay it flat on a greased cookie sheet.
Then on top of the flattened roll, place a small amount of pizza sauce.
On top of the sauce, sprinkle a little bit of shredded mozzarella cheese, and 3 pepperoni slices.
Then carefully the dough over the close the roll back up. Pinch the edges together to seal the pizza toppings inside.
Try to avoid leaving any holes in the dough seams or they will allow the cheese to melt out.
Repeat these steps for all of the rolls.
Once you are done with the rolls, place them on the greased pan and place the pan in the oven and bake the pizza pockets for 15-20 minutes or until they are golden brown on top.
Then let the pockets cool for 2-3 minutes before serving them and then enjoy!
