How to Assemble the Pizza Pockets
If you are just taking a look at these pizza pockets, you may be thinking that they are difficult to put together. But, fear not! All you need is a little bit of counter space and you’re set to go. Essentially, you get 6 pizza pockets out of 2 standard rounds of pie crust that come in a package together. Since you have to have both a top and a bottom piece, I recommend following these tips to help you out:
- Roll your pie crusts out to roughly a 12×8 rectangle. You’ll need to cut the round edges off to make it rectangle after you roll them out.
- Cut each pie crust rectangle into 6 equal squares. Put the filling ingredients in the center of 3 of the squares, leaving 1/2 an inch around all the sides for crimping. These squares have now become the bottoms of the pizza pockets.
- Gently put the remaining 3 empty squares on top of the filling ingredients – these pieces have now become the tops! Crimp the edges together with a fork to keep the filling from leaking out.
And voila! Your pizza pockets are ready for baking!
After the pizza pockets have been assembled, you brush the tops with melted butter (YUM) and bake until golden brown and delicious!
The pie crust is perfectly flakey.
The fillings are melty and loaded full of pepperoni flavor.
And the fun making these and eating them is SO worth it!
Just think: the possibilites with these Pepperoni Pizza Pockets are endless! Make them with your family for a fun snack or dinner option, serve them as an appetizer, game night or entertaining favorite. Whatever way you serve them or eat them, they are fun and delicious!
