Egg Pizza Pockets

Egg Pizza Pockets


  1. PREHEAT oven to 350°F.

  2. UNROLL pie crusts. CUT four 4-inch squares from each round of pastry to make a total of 8 squares.

  3. WHISK together 2 eggs, salt and pepper. HEAT butter in large nonstick skillet set over medium heat; COOK eggs for 3 to 5 minutes or until set and soft curds form. LET cool slightly.

  4. SPREAD pizza sauce over half of the pastry squares; TOP with pepperoni, mozzarella and scrambled eggs. WHISK remaining egg with 1 tsp. cold water; BRUSH edges of rectangles with some of the beaten egg. TOP with remaining pastry squares and PRESS edges to seal with tines of fork. BRUSH tops with beaten egg.

  5. PLACE pockets on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. BAKE for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. SERVE with ranch dressing for dipping.

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
