Skull Pizza Pockets

I’m having the time of my life playing with this skull cake mold. This time I made skull pizza pockets! These spooky pizza pockets are perfect for halloween, for kids and adults alike. You can stuff them with whatever you want, to customize for each family member’s preferences. The skull mold is made of cast aluminum, so it’s heavy duty and provides a crispy outer layer on these pizza pockets. If you are looking for a festive Halloween meal, give these pizza pockets a try.

Why you’ll love this Halloween pizza recipe

  • The skull is so festive for spooky season, and the shape lends itself perfectly for a pizza pocket!
  • You can stuff these pizza pockets with your favorite pizza toppings.
  • If you decide to get a skull mold, and I think you should, this is just another fun way to use it! So far everything I’ve tried in this mold has turned out so great!

Here’s what you’ll need to make it

Ingredients & substitutions

  • Pizza Dough – I use the kind that comes in a can in the refrigerator section.
  • Your favorite pizza sauce – I like a good, thick pizza sauce!
  • Ground sausage – You will only need about 1/4 pound, but I always make the whole pound and use it for other recipes later in the week. Otherwise you can use pepperoni if you don’t like sausage. You can use really anything you like on pizza. I would pre-cook veggies if you use those though, so the pizza pockets don’t get too watery.
  • Mozzarella cheese – I buy pre-shredded for this, just for ease of making these pizza pockets.

How to make this pizza pocket recipe

Step 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2. Unroll your pizza dough. Roll out with a rolling pin, so the dough is thinner. Cut into 8 rectangles, large enough to fit in the skull. Line all 6 skulls with dough. With the remaining 2 rectangles, cut each into 3. This will be the top of the skulls after you fill each pizza skull.

Step 3. Fill each skull with cheese, sauce and sausage. Thin out the remaining rectangle and place over the skull, sealing the pocket.

Step 4. Bake for 15 minutes and let cool before serving.
