Equipment Needed


Baking sheet

Brush for egg wash



Preparation Method


Preheat the Oven:

Set your oven to 200°C (392°F) to ensure it reaches the right temperature when you bake.

Prepare the Puff Pastry:

Start by cutting the puff pastry sheets into 10x10 cm squares. The size of the squares ensures that each pocket is large enough to hold a satisfying amount of filling while still being easy to seal.

Add the Filling:

Spoon approximately 15 to 20 grams of filling onto each square. The filling should consist of grated mozzarella, chopped ham, and sundried tomatoes. These ingredients combine the rich, savoury taste of the ham with the sundried tomatoes' sharpness, complemented by mozzarella's melting goodness.

Add a tablespoon of tomato sauce over the filling to integrate the classic pizza flavour.

Form the Pockets:

Carefully fold each square in half, pressing the edges together to seal. Ensure the edges are sealed tightly to prevent the filling from leaking during baking.

Press the edges with a fork to enhance the seal, adding a decorative touch to the pockets.

Egg Wash and Seasoning:

Beat the eggs lightly in a bowl. Use a brush to apply a thin layer of egg wash over the surface of each pocket. This not only helps in achieving a golden-brown finish but also acts as a glue for the seasoning.

Sprinkle breadcrumbs and oregano on the egg wash for added texture and flavour. The breadcrumbs add a satisfying crunch, while the oregano hints herbaceous warmth.


Place the prepared pockets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the pockets are golden brown and puffed up.


Serving Suggestions


Serve these pizza pockets hot, directly from the oven, for the best taste and texture. They are perfect as a snack during gatherings, a quick lunch, or even a light dinner paired with a fresh salad. For an extra touch, serve with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.




You can store pizza pockets in the refrigerator for up to three days. Reheat in the oven or microwave when ready to serve. They also freeze well, making them a convenient make-ahead option for quick meals.
