Pumpkin Pizza Pockets

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.

Recipe Notes:
*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
Italian seasoning
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.
