Introduction: Pizza Pockets

This is how to make Pizza pockets that taste better than the ones you can buy.

Step 1: Ingredients

You need:

A can of crescent dough. (It's fun and tasty to experiment with different flavors!)

A can of Pizza sauce.

A bag of Pizza cheese.

Toppings such as a bag of mini pepperonis.

A nonstick pan or a regular pan and cooking spray.

Step 2: Roll Out Dough

Lay out the crescent dough as normal.

Step 3: Add a Dab of Sauce

LESS SAUCE IS BETTER!

You will have a mess if you add too much sauce, you should be able to see the dough through the sauce.

Step 4: Sprinkle Cheese

Again, less is more.

Step 5: Add Toppings

Don't add too many, but don't hesitate to experiment.

Step 6: Roll Them Up!

Roll the crescents up like you normally would but tuck in the ends.

Step 7: Repeat

Repeat making more Pizza pockets, here are some photos of another way to roll them up.

Step 8: Continue Making Them.

Here are more photos to show you how to roll them up.

Step 9: A Few More Examples.

Really you can roll them any how you want as long as you get them mostly covered.

Step 10: Bake Them.

All ingredients except for the dough are precooked, so you only have to follow the instructions on the dough packaging. Since the dough does get stretched out, I suggest checking them early and not waiting for the maximum time.

Step 11: ENJOY!!!

I used a flavored crescent roll dough, and these really are better than anything I ever bought!

My favorite part is picking different crust flavors like with Pizza Hut's new crust flavors, that's where I got the idea to use different flavored crescents.

Did you notice I used Honey Butter crescent rolls? These can be made with different flavored dough, but if you want a more authentic pizza taste then try my Mini Pizzas.

It is, and part of the fun is picking which dough to use. For these I used Honey Butter cresent rolls.
