Grilled Pizza Pockets

  • Author: Laura


  • 1 recipe of fast and easy pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce, plus additional for dipping (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 cups of shredded mozzarella
  • toppings of your choice (I used pepperoni, salami, and olives – if using fresh veggies be sure to follow my tip right above this recipe)
  • 1/4 cup Johnny’s Seasoning (or you can use grated Parmesan with some Italian seasoning and a little garlic powder mixed in)
  • olive oil


  1. Divide you pizza dough into 8 balls.  Roll out each ball into a 6 inch round.
  2. Spread 1 Tbsp of sauce in the center of each round, leaving about an inch from the edge without sauce.
  3. Top each round with 1/4 cup of cheese follow by some of your toppings.  Fold in half and seal the edges together by pinch the dough.
  4. Now you are going to grill these over indirect heat.  In order to do this, turn you grill on with all of it on high.  Get it nice and hot, about somewhere between 400-500 degrees.  Then turn the heat off to half of the grill.  Mine has 3 sections so I turned 1 at one end of the grill, turned the middle to low, and left the other end on high.
  5. Brush the bottom side of you pockets with a little olive oil and place them oil side town on the part of the grill that has been turned off.  Brush the tops with oil and then sprinkle 1/2 Tbsp of the seasoning over each pocket.
  6. Close the lid of the grill and let them cook for about 8-10 minutes until the dough is completely cooked and the cheese is melted.  Try to not peak at them during this time because you will lover the temperature.  If you must peak, only do it once.
