Pizza Biscuit Pockets

Biscuit Pizza Pockets Recipe from
The plan was to make Pigs in Blankets. But then I saw the pepperoni beside the hot dogs and I HAD to make pizza pockets instead. The lunch menu was changed, much to the utter dismay of a certain 4 year old. And lucky for me, the finished pockets were met with approval.

Pizza Pocket Biscuits

Pizza Biscuit Pockets
Makes 4 Pockets + a handful of mini biscuits

  • Heat oven to 450°F.

Blend together:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

With pastry blender, cut in:
1/2 cup butter
Until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Don’t get carried away. If the butter ends up to fine, your cooked dough won’t be as flakey.

Stir in:
3/4 cup milk
In bowl, knead lightly 10 or so times until you have a smooth ball of dough.

On a clean and floured counter, roll dough out till it is fairly thin. Cut into approximately 6″ rounds (I used a bowl).

Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce on the rounds, leaving a finger-width of space around the edge. Sprinkle on a light layer of grated cheese. Slap on a few slices of pepperoni. For good luck, sprinkle on a little more cheese.

Carefully fold pizza in half to format pocket. Pinch edges together.

Place pockets on parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Brush a little olive oil on, for beautiful golden glow.

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Serve warm.
