Air Fryer or Oven Crescent Roll Pepperoni Pizza Pockets

Ingredients

  • 2 - 8 ounce cans refrigerated crescent dough sheet
  • 1 - 5 ounce package mini pepperoni
  • 1 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat the air fryer or oven to 350 degrees. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the air fryer basket or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, unroll the crescent dough and press into an even rectangle. Cut each sheet of crescent dough into 4 equal rectangles.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the pepperoni, cheese, and pizza sauce. Place about ¼ cup of the mixture on each piece of crescent dough towards one end.
  4. Fold the crescent dough over the mixture and press to seal the edges. Crimp with a fork.
  5. Place the pockets into the air fryer basket or on baking sheet, leaving space between for the crescent dough to puff. Brush with melted butter.
  6. Cook in the air fryer for 7 to 9 minutes, flipping halfway or until golden. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
