Waffled Pizza Pockets

Picture of Waffled Pizza Pockets

These crescent roll pizza pockets take only about 5 minutes to make, and they are so yummy.  These can also be made many different ways, using different fillings. Ham and cheese is also great, and I imagine peanut butter and jelly wouldn't be horrible.

Step 1: Ingredients and Equipment


There really aren't any measurements for the ingredients. Just add how much you like, and whatever you like. This is just the list of ingredients that I used for this Instructable.

-Crescent rolls (I used reduced fat)
-Pepperoni
-Mozzerella cheese
-Parmesan cheese
-Pizza sauce, for dipping


Equipment needed: 

-Cutting board, cutting mat, cookie sheet, plate, or anything else on which to assemble the pocket of deliciousness.
-Waffle iron

Step 2: Making the Pocket


First, you should turn on the waffle iron and let it preheat. There is no need to oil or butter the iron, there is enough oil in the dough to keep them from sticking.


Open the tube of crescent rolls and remove the dough, being careful not to tear it.

The roll of dough should split right in half if you persuade it gently.

I only used half the roll for one pocket, the other half I bagged and stuck in the refrigerator for later.

Unroll the half-tube of dough and separate into two rectangles, each consisting of two crescent roll triangles. (see picture)  You'll want to pinch the triangle seems together, to form two solid rectangular pieces, one for the bottom and one for the top. Try to shape the pieces so that they are roughly the same size.

Nice... I think I'll just do it in my George Foreman but thanks for the idea.

Amazingly good when you use your own dough (made using a bread machine) and your own sauce (made using a crockpot). I even got a decent picture of one of our many successful trial runs.

BRILLIANT! Gonna buy a waffle iron tomorrow and try this!

Great idea but I have a cheap waffle iron and it doesn't cook evenly :(

I've found this is the best way to make grilled cheese. I just put cheese between two slices of bread, stick it into the iron, and put a weight on it. It makes the bread and the cheese merge into one delicious brick of deliciousness.
This great. My husband & I love it.

Using a waffle iron to grill hamburgers works great, with the waffle pattern on the meat, the condiments stay in place, and they cook quick, I used to make them for my kids, when they were small.

And a picture. They were peperoni and cheese, but I used canned pillsbury pizza dough instead of croissant dough.

I saw your blog, and made the waffled hash browns. They were Waffleicious! I am looking forward to these pizza pockets!
I don't have a waffle iron, but I do have a panini grill. I wonder if it will work just as well?
 these are amazing just made some thanks amazing idea
 Wow, this was a really great idea.  I went to the store to buy the crescent rolls, and made them.  Instead of doing the pizza pocket as you did, I made it breakfast style.  I had some slab bacon in the fridge, sauteed it, and made some scrambled eggs too.  It turned out delicious. Thank you.
i am going to try this, i do think peanut butter and jelly would be so friggin good!
 Ive always wondered what other uses I could use my waffle iron for. this looks like a delicious idea! Pizza waffles for the game night!

Quick question... There was no mention of greasing or oiling the waffle iron before dropping the pocket in. Should I assume it's not necessary due to the ingredients in the dough?
kfr1sby (author)  schlammbad4 years ago
Actually I did mention it, it's in step 2, second sentence. But, to answer your question here, no you don't need to oil the iron, the dough usually has enough oil in it, to make it come out easily.
I was distracted by the anticipation of deliciousness! :-)

 You can also use the waffle iron to cook bacon with less grease and missed spots. Check Alton Brown of Food Network. His idea,
kfr1sby (author)  cantab4 years ago
Yes, thank you for posting that! I just watched the video on that a few days ago, and have been meaning to post it, but haven't, obviously. As soon as I get some bacon (haven't been grocery shopping in a while) I will try it and post the results. Thanks again for reminding me!
 Ummm, you're filling this full of pepperoni, mozzarella, and parmesan. Why reduced fat crescent rolls?
kfr1sby (author)  QueenCeleste4 years ago
Good question. No reason for it really, I just only buy reduced fat crescent rolls. It's what I had on hand. If I had the regular ones, that's what I would have used.

This is a brilliant idea! Somewhere I have a recipe for waffle cookies, but I never would have thought of waffle pizza pockets.

You are a genius. Now to find my waffle iron.
 waffle cookies I might want to try that.  just cookie dough in the iron?

They looks GREAT!!
i come from italy and i would like to try them!
But we don't have crescent roll  (or other ready product for this stuff)
there is a fast way to make tha stuff at home?!
like flour water butter or oliven oil yeast... and what more?!
the iron will be able to cook them?!( if i make the fake crescent roll i mean...)

Thanks!
bye!
kfr1sby (author)  minimalista4 years ago
If you're asking what you can use other than crescent rolls...you can make a homemade pizza crust and I'm sure it would have close to the same results. I don't have a recipe for homemade pizza crust that I like, but I'm sure you could find something online.
THANKS!

 My father used to make our grilled cheese sandwiches in the waffle iron and I loved the extra crunchiness. You can find the old sandwich makers at thrift shops if you don't have a waffle iron. it won't be as flat and crunchy, but you can go ahead and add the sauce before cooing. A Foreman grill would work as well..
 We've seen various sizes of waffle irons at thrift shops, too. Some of the larger ones have griddles that can be removed and flipped so you have a flat surface on top & botton instead of the waffle.
