  • 1 tube of crescent dough
  • ¼ cup of Marinara sauce
  • ½ cup of Italian blend cheese
  • Italian seasoning and grated parmesan for dusting
  • Your favorite pizza toppings such as sautéed mushrooms onions, and sliced pepperoni

  • Start making your pizza by spreading a tablespoon of marinara sauce on top of each rectangle. You will need to spread one-half of the dough since you will fold the sides. Therefore, you also need to leave enough space on the sides.
  • Top the marinara sauce with two to three tablespoons of cheese and your favorite toppings. Then fold the dough to cover the pizza inside. Seal them by gently pushing your fork around the edges.
  • Sprinkle a pinch of Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese on each pocket. Then cut small slits on top of the pockets. It doesn’t have to be deep as you just want the dough to rise and let out the steam.
  • Line up the pockets on a baking sheet with parchment or baking paper. Bake them for about 13 to 15 minutes until they are all turning golden brown. You can serve the pockets with marinara sauce or ranch dressing for dipping.
