Simple Football Pizza Pockets


Football Pizza Pockets are a tasty treat. So if you are just chilling at home this weekend for the Super Bowl, here is a fun and really simple idea. You will need a football shaped cookie cutter to do this. Using refrigerated pizza dough, you can make mini pizza pockets.

Just roll the dough on a floured surface, cut footballs out of crust dough. Place on cookie sheet.

Spread half of the footballs with pizza sauce and sprinkle with cheese.




Place the plain dough footballs over the ones with the pizza toppings.



Use the remaining dough remnants to make laces.


Bake on cookie sheet. The time will vary depending on the brand of dough used. It can be any where from 9-15 minutes so watch carefully. I would also recommend baking on parchment paper to avoid over baking. You will want to have some dipping sauce because the pockets will be a bit dough-heavy if you eat them plain.

Who are you rooting for this year?




  1. I’m kinda rooting for neither. I just..don’t really know either team. I like the commercials, though. And food like this! I may attempt this if I get asked to go to a party. My stomach is growling so much right now from your photos! I hope my laces would look as good as yours do.

  2. These are cute and tasty. I’d love it if you linked these to our Super Bowl Party.. These would be a special treat for the kids and the big kids too.


  3. These look really good and easy! Not really rooting for either team but I look forward to the commercials and the food.
