Football Pizza Pockets

Course Appetizer
Cuisine American


  • 1 Wholly Wholesome Traditional Organic Rolled Pie Dough
  • 1 Cup Pizza Sauce
  • 1 Small Package Pepperoni Slices
  • 4 oz Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 Egg beaten with 1 tbsp of cold water


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Roll out the Wholly Wholesome Traditional Organic Pie Dough. Using a large circle cookie cutter, cut out one circle of the dough. Use the cookie cutter again on half of the circle, making a football shape. Once you have the football template, use this to cut shapes from the remaining dough with a knife. Roll out the scraps and cut as many footballs as you can.
  • On a football cutout, place a couple of pepperoni slices, a piece of mozzarella cheese and a little pizza sauce.
  • Brush a little of the egg wash around the edges and then place another football shaped cutout over the stuffing and seal it by pressing firmly around the edges.
  • Using a fork, crimp the edges around the pizza pocket and then make slits on the top, resembling the football laces.
  • Brush the tops of each pizza pocket with the egg wash and place them on a baking sheet. Bake 10-14 minutes or until the pizza pockets turn golden brown. Serve with remaining pizza sauce for dipping.
