How To Make Pizza Pop-Tarts [VIDEO]

Pizza Pop-Tart Ingredients
  • 1 Pillsbury Dough Sheet
  • 1 cups pizza sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese. (I prefer to use mozzarella)
  • Pizza toppings. Mini pepperoni was used in the video.
  • 1-2 tsp oregano
  • 2-3 tsp flour for dusting prep area
Pizza Pop-Tart Instructions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a large cooking sheet with foil. Grease or spray cooking sheet and set aside.
  3. Lightly flour your prep surface and roll out your dough.
  4. Using your pizza cutter lengthwise, make a cut every 3”
  5. Take your pizza cutter again and cut each strip in half (at the 6” mark) giving you 10-12 squares.
  6. Place half of the rectangles onto your working surface leaving 1” space in between. If need be use 2 trays. These are your bottoms, the rest are the tops.
  7. Spoon a little marinara sauce in the middle of the bottom rectangles and slowly spread out.
  8. Sprinkle cheese as well as toppings over sauce. You want to keep all of the toppings and sauce about 1/2” from the edge of the dough.
  9. Taking one of your tops, place it on top of your filled bottom. Use the tips of your fingers and gently press the edges together all the way around.
  10. Using a fork (it may help to dip it in flour to prevent sticking), crimp the edges all the way around the rectangle sealing it. Repeat this until 6 hand pies are made.
  11. Feel free to take your pastry brush or spoon, dip it back in the marinara and brush over the top of the pop-tart and add additional cheese and toppings, like a pizza.
  12. Take a toothpick or your fork and poke a few holes in the top of the dough to help eliminate air pockets from forming while baking.
  13. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until the dough is golden brown and feels firm to the touch.
  14. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a minute before serving.
  15. (Optional) Sprinkle the tops with a pinch of oregano.
