My family loves pizza, so I always try and create different recipes that incorporate pizza ingredients such as my Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza Casserole and Pepperoni Pizza Dip. These meals were a huge hit in my family so I knew that I needed to come up with another recipe that used pizza ingredients. Since my family likes to spend the weekend watching movies and lounging around the house, I wanted to make a simple snack that would keep them satisfied throughout the day. These Italian Pizza Pockets were perfect for their weekend Italian Pizza Pockets. 

The perfect appetizers for game day or any get together. These pizza pockets are filled with amazing ingredients and can be altered in many different ways.

What I love the most about these Italian Pizza Pockets is that you can change the ingredients to fit your taste buds and your family’s taste buds. I love to change the ingredients each time I make these.

  • 8oz ground Italian sausage
  • 1 cup pepperoni quartered
  • 4oz cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan, grated
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 egg
  • Pizza crust or crescent rolls (I used crescent rolls)
  • Salt/Pepper to taste
  • Marina for dipping 

The steps to these Italian Pizza Pockets are simple. 

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees 
  • Cook the ground sausage
  • Once sausage is cooked, add the pepperoni to the sausage mixture & stir
  • Slowly add the fresh spinach, stir, and allow to wilt
  • Remove from heat & let cool for 10mns
  • Add the cream cheese, parmesan, and mozzarella cheese to the meat mixture and allow to melt
  • Open the crescent rolls & scoop a teaspoon of mixture onto the center of them
  • Fold the crescent rolls over the meat mixture and close
  • Beat the egg and brush the top of the pizza pocket with egg wash
  • Bake for 8-14 minutes (mine cooked relatively quick, but all ovens are not the same)
