If you’ve browsed around my blog at all, you know that my family likes pizza. And, we like having fun with our pizza. This homemade pizza pocket recipe is no exception. Basically, I took the almond flour crust we love (Check Out The Recipe Here), doubled the batch, and turned it into tasty, handheld pizza pockets. I remember loving Hot Pockets as a kid, and these hit the spot. For this recipe, I’ve used a ham and pepperoni filling. However, it’d be really easy to switch up the filing with whatever you’re craving.

Make the Almond Flour Pizza Dough


The base of these homemade pizza pockets is the almond four pizza dough. First, melt shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese together in the microwave for a minute. Add garlic powder, Italian herbs, and salt to season the dough. Stir everything together and microwave again. When the cheeses are all melted and mixed together, add almond flour. Stir in the almond flour as best as you can. Then, put the dough back into the microwave for another minute. Add olive oil, xanthan gum, and baking powder to the bowl. Stir until everything mixes together and form a dough. Microwave again if needed until everything comes together.

Divide and Roll Out the Pizza Dough

Now that you’ve made your dough, divide it into eight portions. Next, take one portion and roll it into a ball. Then, roll out the portion between two pieces of parchment paper into a long circular shape about 1/8″ thick. Repeat with all the portions until all your dough is rolled out. Your dough might not turn out perfectly shaped, but that’s ok.

Make the Pizza Pocket Filling

With all the pizza pocket dough rolled out, it’s time to make the filling. So, in a large bowl, mix together shredded mozzarella, pizza sauce, mini turkey pepperoni slices and diced ham. Stir your filling together until it’s well combined.

Fill the Pizza Pockets

Once you have the filling made, it’s time to start filling pockets. First, grab one portion of rolled out dough. Then, spoon some filling onto one half of the dough. Repeat with the remaining filling dividing it evenly between all the pizza pockets. Lastly, make sure there’s no filling on the edge of the dough, so the pocket will seal.

Close and Seal the Pizza Pockets

Once you have the ham and pepperoni filling divided evenly, it’s time to close and seal the pizza pockets. First, fold the dough over the filling and line up the edges. Using the parchment paper to fold makes this a little easier. Then, use a fork to crimp the edges together. Just press gently with a fork along all the open edges of the pocket. The pizza pockets will look similar to empanadas.

Bake and Enjoy Your Homemade Pizza Pockets

Once you have made all your pizza pockets and sealed them up, place them on a baking sheet. Then, bake your homemade pizza pockets at 425° for about 15 minutes until they are golden and crispy. Serve and enjoy. You can even do a pizza pocket cheers if you want.
