Homemade Hot Pockets


  • 8 serving – pizza dough, whole wheat
  • 3 cup – spaghetti or marinara sauce
  • 8 serving – turkey pepperoni
  • 1 cup – spinach
  • 8 ounce – mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup, pieces or slices – mushrooms, white
Serve With:
  • 2 cup, chunks – pineapple


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. If using a pizza stone, be sure to place into oven now.
  2. Divide dough into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a rectangle. (Get creative and make them smaller or larger depending on which hands will hold the pocket.)
  3. Shred cheese; chop mushrooms and pineapple.
  4. Add 2-3 tablespoons of sauce onto one side of each of the dough pieces, leaving an area around the edge so edges can be sealed together. Add desired fillings to 1/2 of each rectangle. Fold other half over to form a pocket; seal edges by pressing the dough together. Cut a small slit into each pocket and place them on a baking sheet (or pizza stone).
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool. Serve with pineapple on the side.
