Pizza Hot Pockets with Biscuits

I’ve shared this recipe in my free Awesome Appetizer e-book but I thought, with the Super Bowl just around the corner, that it was time to share this awesome finger food with all of you. I love my Lasagna Cups when I’m in the mood for an Italian appetizer but these pepperoni pizza pockets, aka Bambinis, are just pure ooey gooey, cheesy deliciousness.

They’re super simple to make with only five ingredients! That’s right just 5, starting with a can of store-bought biscuits, some pepperoni slices and cheeses. These pizza hot pockets are so easy you can throw them together at the last minute and be ready to enjoy the game. 

How to Make Homemade Pizza Pockets

Pizza hot pocket ingredients.

  1. Gather ingredients – biscuits, pepperoni, mozzarella, ricotta and Parmesan cheese. All this will go together in about 10 minutes.

Steps to assemble hot pockets with biscuits.

  1. First, separate the biscuits horizontally in half then press out into a circle.
  2. Place 2 slices of pepperoni and a tablespoon of the 3 cheeses on one side of biscuit.
  3. Fold in half and pinch edges together. You can also use the tines of a fork to make the edge a little fancier, more like an empanada.
  4. Place on a cookie sheet and bake. That’s it!

Don’t worry if the cheese is oozing out, it just makes it that much better. I mean who doesn’t like warm ooey gooey cheese? Aren’t you just drooling about now?! You can even prep these ahead of time if you don’t want to miss any of the game.

I like to pop them into the oven about 20 minutes before I want to serve them. And I always have a backup of hot pockets waiting to be baked on another sheet pan just in case I run out. And I always do!
