We’ve seen lots of variations of this recipe with bread but we decided to try this with refrigerated pizza dough. Boy am I glad we did! We loved the crispiness and flakiness of the pizza crust! If you can’t find refrigerated pizza crust you could also try refrigerated pie dough. You basically just need to cut out a square to the size of your pie iron but before you do make sure you baste your pie iron down with a silicone basting brush.

Make it your own

Pie iron pizza sauce and spices

Now it’s time to add the base for your pie iron pizza pockets. We used the squeezable pizza sauce and our homemade Italian seasoning but you could get creative and use our homemade Alfredo or our homemade pesto sauce as well. How about taco sauce for a taco pizza or BBQ sauce for a BBQ pizza?

Make sure you have some coals in your fire. The fire needs to be hot enough to cook the crust. If you are cooking this over a grill that’s fine too. Just make sure your grate is close to the heat source.
