I always like to make something fun for the kids to enjoy on Halloween. This year’s treat is a Pumpkin Pizza Pockets. These little pizza pockets are quick and easy and perfect to eat as the kids head out the door to go trick or treating.
*Play around with the fillings, adding in whatever you have on hand.
*These would also make a great appetizer at a Halloween party.
*Have extra dough pieces? Press them back together, roll them into logs, and tie them into knots and bake with the pizza pockets!
Pumpkin Pizza Pockets
1 tube of refrigerated pizza dough
¼ cup cooked, crumbled Italian sausage
8 slices turkey pepperoni, cut in quarters
¼- ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp parmesan cheese
½ cup pizza sauce
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Unroll the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface and flatten with a rolling pin. Cut out an even number of pumpkin shapes using a large pumpkin cookie cutter.
Lay half of the pumpkin dough shapes on the prepared cookie sheets. Top each pumpkin with a sprinkling of Italian sausage, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese. Place a second piece of dough on top of each and pinch the sides to form a pocket.
Bake the pizza pockets for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Immediate after removing from the oven, brush each pizza pocket with melted butter and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. Serve with pizza sauce.
