  • 1 9-inch pie crust homemade or store bought
  • 1 1/4 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pepperoni slices I prefer turkey pepperoni
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 egg


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place the pie crust on a lightly floured surface. Roll the crust out into a 12 inch circle. Use a 4 inch cookie cutter to cut out 6 of your desired shapes. Transfer the shapes to a sheet pan lined with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper.
  • Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the 6 crust shapes. Top with slices of pepperoni to cover, leaving a small border around the edges.
  • Beat the egg in a small bowl. Brush the egg along the border of the dough.
  • Gather the dough scraps and re-roll the dough to a similar thickness. Cut out 6 more of your shapes. Lay the shapes on top of the pepperoni layer. Use a fork to crimp the edges shut.
  • For a standard pizza pocket, use a paring knife to cut a few lines in the top. For a jack-o-lantern, use a paring knife to carefully cut out eyes and a mouth.
  • Brush the tops of the pizza pockets with the egg wash. The pockets can be baked immediately or covered loosely with plastic wrap and stored in the fridge.
  • Bake the pizza pockets for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Serve immediately with marinara sauce for dipping.



Make Ahead: The uncooked pizza pockets can be stored loosely covered in the fridge for up to 8 hours.
