How to Make a Homemade Pizza Hot pocket

Easy Homemade Pizza Pocket Recipe

Are you a big fan of Italian food? My wife and I are sure are.

The other day I was watching the Food channel, and the chef on the channel was making delicious looking hot pockets. I came up with my own spin on this recipe,  and I thought I would share my easy and thrifty homemade pizza pocket recipe on for everyone else to try.  I also took photo along the way as I put this together.

I hope you enjoy this homemade hot pocket recipe as much as my wife and I did last night.

Ingredients You Will Need to Get

to Make this Homemade Hot Pocket Recipe

  • 1 pound of hamburger meat.
  • 1 package of pepperoni.
  • 1 jar of pizza sauce.
  • 1 bag of mozzarella cheese.
  • 2 rolls of Pillsbury seamless dough sheets.

How to Prepare Your

Homemade Hot Pockets

First of all, you will need to take your Pillsbury dough sheet and either cut into quarters, or you can prepare one giant Hot Pocket out of one single sheet like the one on the left.

Brown your hamburger meat in a pan, add a good amount of hamburger to the top of your homemade hot pocket.  Add pepperoni to the top of the hamburger meat. Now, add a liberal amount of pizza sauce to the top of your other ingredients.  To top off your homemade hot pocket add mozzarella cheese.  Fold over the sides of your hot pocket, and insert a fork a couple of times into the top of the dough for ventilation. 

Heat your oven to 375 degrees, and cook your homemade hot pockets for 25 minutes.
