Yield 8 servings


1 pouch Pillsbury Thin and Crispy Pizza Crust Mix

½ cup hot water (120-130°F)

1 teaspoon Vegetable Oil

Pepperoni (optional)

Mozzarella Cheese

1 egg (beaten with a tablespoon of cold water)

Pizza Sauce


Step 1

Heat oven to 425°F. Spray 9x13-inch pan with no-stick cooking spray.

Step 2

Combine pizza crust mix and ½ cup hot water in medium bowl; stir about 30 strokes with fork or until well blended. Shape dough into ball. (If dough is too sticky, add 1 to 2 tablespoons flour.) Brush with oil. Cover; let stand 5 minutes.

Step 3

Roll out pizza crust. Using a large round cookie cutter, cut round circles out of the dough. Use the cookie cutter again on the round dough cutout to create a football shape. Use this first football shape as a template and cut the rest out. Re-roll the scraps and cut out as many football shapes as you can.

Step 4

On a football cutout, place a couple pepperoni slices, a piece of mozzarella and a little pizza sauce.

Step 5

Brush a little of the egg wash around the edges and place another football shaped cutout over the stuffing and seal by pressing down of the edges.

Step 6

Using a fork, crimp the edges around the pizza pocket and make 3-4 slits in the top to resemble football laces.

Step 7

Brush the tops of each pizza pocket with the egg wash and place them on a baking sheet.

Step 8

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the pizza pockets turn a golden brown. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
