Homemade Pizza Pockets

Homemade Pizza Pockets are our new go to on busy nights. They only take a few minutes to throw together, and have the most amazing taste. I personally prefer them over a slice of pizza. The best part is, you can make it your own, and add your favorite pizza toppings and ingredients.

One of my very favorite meals growing up was when our mom would make these Ham and Pineapple Roll Ups.

I made them the other day for my husband because I was in a huge hurry to put dinner on the table, and my husband was in love. He kept asking why I had never made them before.

It seemed so funny to me because we ate them ALL the time growing up. This week things are super crazy, so I decided to make a pizza pocket version.

They are seriously so easy to make, and the perfect handheld food for little kiddies. If you are looking for a quick and simple dinner or appetizer for any event, this is one recipe you HAVE to try.

do these freeze well?

This recipe is a great one to make ahead of time, if you know it’s going to be a busy day or week.

This recipe freezes great. We always make these ahead of time, and freeze them, then microwave them as needed.

However, this recipe will not work if you freeze them before baking them. These need to be fully cooked before they are frozen.

They will not bake the same it you combine everything while the dough is raw, then bake them later. The Pizza pockets must be fully made, the place in the freezer.

We have found these are best preserved when we place them in a gallon zip lock bag, squeeze all the air out, then place them in an airtight container.

They last for about 20 days in the freezer.

what other DELICIOUS pizza pocket combinations, are there?

I love having variety, and I love how versatile these pizza pockets are. They can easily be switched up, and you can add any flavor or toppings to them, as you wish.

Here are a few of our favorites that we recommend:

-Ham and pineapple
-4 Cheese
-BBQ Chicken
-Chicken Alfredo
-Buffalo Chicken

You could really make these with any of your favorite pizza combinations.

  • 18 frozen dinner roll dough
  • 1 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 3 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 54 slices pepperoni


  1. Thaw rolls according to directions on the package.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. After the rolls are thawed (but not risen), stretch out each roll and lay it flat on a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Spoon a small amount of pizza sauce onto each roll. Top with a small handful of shredded cheese, and three pepperoni slices.
  5. Fold the dough over the toppings and pinch the edges together. Try to not have any holes in your dough, as your cheese will melt out of it.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool a few minutes before serving.
