NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces Italian turkey sausage
  • 1 cup tightly-packed arugula (about 1 ounce)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan, plus 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (13.5-ounce) package of store-bought pizza crust (recommended: Pillsbury)
  • All-purpose flour, for rolling out pizza dough
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce, store-bought or homemade
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe

Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a medium-sized, heavy skillet. Add the sausage and cook until crumbled and golden, about 5 minutes. Add the arugula and cook until wilted. Turn off the heat and let cool about 10 minutes. Add the cream cheese, 1/3 cup Parmesan, salt, and pepper and stir to combine. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface to a thin 20 by 12-inch rectangle. Cut the rectangle in half lengthwise. The cut each half into 8 equal rectangles.

Spoon topping onto 1 side of each of the rectangles. Using a pastry brush, brush the edges of the rectangle with egg wash. Close the rectangle of pizza dough over the topping. Use a fork to seal and crimp the edges. Place the pizza pockets onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Brush the top of each pizza pocket with egg wash. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan. Bake until golden, about 15 to 17 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the marinara sauce over low heat in a medium saucepan. Serve the hot pizza pockets with the marinara sauce alongside for dipping.

That prep time of "15 minutes" was way off for me and I'm a long-time baker!!!  Mine also stuck to the parchment paper so have some more time to invest before eating them.  Next time will use non-stick aluminum foil!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really liked the filling. I used mild Italian sausage and frozen spinach because I can never find arugula. I also used Pillsbury crescent rolls and just made 4 large "calzones." My boys loved them and just dipped them in jarred spaghetti sauce. To make these gluten free for me, I just put some sauce and some of the filling on a GF crust I had made and frozen. Next time, I'll probably make a fresh GF crust and shape them into pockets for myself. I may add more veggies just for more flavor and nutrition. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for a Superbowl Sunday appetizer. They were devoured!! Although they didn't come out perfectly shaped, everyone loved the taste. The crust came out crispy, and the filling was perfect. The hardest part for me was trying to make them evenly shaped, that obviously didn't happen, but no one seemed to mind. As always, great recipe Giada! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow this was somewhat easy. In the end, they were yummy. It did take me longer to prep. I couldn't get arugula, so i just added a mix of salad greens. Added spices, sage, chili pepper flakes, but not to make it hot. Used the pizza dough from the can, Pilsbury's. Worked out okay. Just cut into 16 pieces and rolled out. Crimped with fork, as i thought by hand they might open. This reminds me of making peroghies...which turned out to be the size of pizza pops. Got a few that were slightly larger, but those are for people with bigger appetites,eh. Baked them for 20 minutes...a nice golden colour. And they poofed up nicely...When you bite into one, there is a crunch...which I like. It is not soggy. The insides are smooth, the turkey sausage was crumbled as it cooked. Ate without a sauce but would be good with one of your choice. My fave sauce is ceasar dressing, for the dipping. I would make these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't use pizza dough. I bought wonton wrappers. So easy when you don't have the time . item not reviewed by moderator and published
These pizza pockets were SO good, I didn't have any leftovers! I made my own dough using Bobby Flay's pizza dough recipe and my own marinara sauce using Giada's recipe. I also used Italian Chicken Sausage because Turkey Sausage was no where to be found, and it came out great. The filing is VERY easy to make and the pockets bake very quickly. Would make for a great appetizer or snack. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So much time and energy put into this, and the dough turned out tough and hard. I was pretty disappointed. However, the filling tasted great and saved the pizza bite from becoming a complete disaster. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made these several times and will be again soon. Never did use the pizza dough, I used TJ crescent rolls.Don't think it really matters what pastry type you use. Every time these are such a hit. Easy and they taste like you slaved over them! Thx Giada!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love these things! So forgiving too! I have made them with breakfast sausages, reg Italian sausage, and -my personal favorite-Spicy Italian sausage. I had trouble with the cutting of the dough, so I used my large biscuit cutter and they look like cute in that shape. Probably smaller than she intended, but they still fly off the plate! Thanks again for a great recipe Giada! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was ok. Like other reviewers said, the dough is tough to work with, and it took me a few tries to get the pockets shaped properly. I also substituted spinach for the arugula. Additionally, I think parmesan is a much too salty cheese for a pizza pocket, and if I make it again, I will substitute mozzarella. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these today and found that the refrigerated dough was pretty tough to work with. There was no way I was going to make those darling triangles with what came out of the tube. Went for the rectangle instead. I was struggling to get them to seal well so they look a little "rustic" rather than neat and tidy. Whatever, as long as they're all that way, nobody will ever know how it should have looked! I really like the flavors in this but I did find it to be pretty salty. I should have tasted and then salted since I think the sausage had some in it maybe. I'd cut that back a little for next time. I also let the sausage and arugula rest the time it specified and then it was too cool to melt the cream cheese and Parmesan so I had to throw that back on the heat for a bit to get them to combine nicely. I give it a 4 as written and will probably try it again with less salt and maybe some fresh homemade dough instead of Pillsbury. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fantastic. I modified this recipe to be vegetarian friendly, using MorningStarFarms "Italian Sausage" instead of turkey. Threw in some lemon zest for good measure too. It's easy and really tasty!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Used spinach instead, and let me tell you, people will NOT believe you made these on your own. Encountered some trouble when assembling them and they didn't look beautiful. But forget about that saying "You eat with your eyes", cause baby, I was eating with my mouth and mama liked!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for the first time last night and my family absolutely loved them - thanks for another delicious and easy recipe, Giada! The salt was just right for my family because we do tend to like salt, but if you don't like too much salt my recommendation would be not to add in the 1/2 tsp salt to see if that makes a difference. It was my first time working with pizza dough and I'd have to say that part of the recipe took a while. From start to finish this whole recipe took me about an hour because rolling the dough and shaping the pizza rolls took some time. After doing a few you do get the hang of it though and find out what works for you. Mine were bigger - I made a total of 8 so they were more like small calzones but everything cooked perfectly and tasted great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
VERY TASTY!!!! I MAKE THESE FOR THE 4TH OF JULY AND EVERYONE RAVES ABOUT THEM I USE SPINACH INSTEAD OF ARUGULA! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicous I love her show too:) item not reviewed by moderator and published
A wonderfully delicious recipe. I eliminated the sausage and arugula for pepperoni and mozarella cheese. I also eliminated a good bit of the salt. If you know Giada and tried her recipes you know how salty her food is. So when I make her dishes, I eliminate at least half of the salt in her recipes for my taste buds and it always comes out delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to make, but a little time consuming. Couldn't get the triangle shape so made rectangles, which still worked fine. Took these to a party and everyone loved them. Delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am absolutely in love with this recipe. I even made it a little more traditional by substituting pepperoni for the sausage and omitting the arugula. it tastes a little more like a pizza, and my family seems to like it a lot. Everyone is always asking me to make these yummy pizza pockets. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found these very delicious! I used spinach instead of arugula but I encourage you to put anything in it, veggies make it taste even better. If you are going to buy Pillbury dough just work with it fast because it dries pretty fast. In conclusion, I can't wait to make them again! very very good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awsome!! The hubby and kids loved it!!! It will be on the menu again here soon. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm sort of obsessed with these. They are really easy and a fun alternative to a traditional homemade pizza. I pretty much followed the recipe exactly, with a few exceptions, however. I used homemade pizza dough and added crispy pancetta, mozzarella, and a few mushrooms to the filling. Even with the pancetta, I didn't find it too salty. But I tend to like things on the saltier side, so I probably would advise to taste the filling and salt it to your preference. I don't think you'll be disappointed if you make these. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ok, so I did make some changes so I could test out different combinations. First I followed the recipe exactly but only used half of the sausage, parmesan cheese, and arugula. I then put those ingredients in a pocket. Since I have always had calzones with sauce in the pocket, I decided to put some marinara sauce in with the sausage mixture into the pocket. Then I added some mozzarella, and chopped pepperoni to the original sausage mixture and put that into the dough. And then added some sauce to another one of those as well. Again I'm testing to see which one myself and everyone else likes best. Then I made a sausage mixture without the arugula and put in spinach, mozzarella, cream cheese, pepperoni, and parmesan. And for the last combination, I put in some sauce with that mixture. All of these were delicious and this recipe was fantastic and everyone loved 'em! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought they were very good, although I didn't use any arugula, as I am not a fan of arugula. I also loved changing the dough to make bigger sized pizza pockets. Overall, a very nice dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Black Pepper does not dissolve in your gut and causes digestive chaos. A little cayenne is a great and easy replacement. item not reviewed by moderator and published
When I make a recipe for the first time, I generally make it exactly as written- I assume the Chef's know more than I do!- but the comments regarding the saltiness of the recipe led me to leave it out. I'm glad I did- I used jarred marinara, and personally, I thought it was plenty salty with this change. The only thing I did differently from the recipe as written was to make 4 small calzones rather than the bite-sized pockets. I thought this was a really quick, really easy, really good recipe as written- but can see where it could be a jumping-off point to put together other great combinations of ingredients. Give this one a try- I don't think you'll be disappointed at all!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am sorry to say I cannot keep trying Giada's recipes. I loved them in the past. Members of the family are now lactose intolerant. I would love for these chef's to include alternate substitutions for cheeses/dairy products for all those with allergies. Most chef's are knowledgeable to do this and this amatuer does want to create great meals for her family. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed this recipe exactly. While my husband and step-father LOVED them, my mother and I felt as though the stuffing was a bit too salty. I WILL make these again, but next time I probably won't add the extra salt it calls for. Only reason I gave it four out of five stars item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a great Saturday night supper. I made 4 individual calzones and served with a tossed green salad. Big hit with everyone. Thanks Giada. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is FABULOUS! I made these last night and they turned out perfect. However, I did not follow the recipe exactly. I ended up cooking some onions and minced garlic with the sausage, adding pepperoni and mushrooms, substituted spinach for arugula, put a little less cream cheese and used a mix of mozzarella and parmesan cheese for the filling and topping. I made my own pizza dough and learned that the pockets come out smoother if you just seal the edges with your fingertips. Since I was making these for dinner and did not want appetizer size pockets, I cut the dough into 8 rectangles rather than 16 smaller rectangles. They cooked perfectly. These pockets are so versatile and easy! I would highly recommend trying this recipe out even if you are not a huge fan of cream cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
You can also make it into calzones- one package of pizza crust makes one calzone. Spinach is a good substitue for the arugula, and you can cook half the spinach with the sausage, and put the other half in raw- gives it a nice bite. spaghetti sauce is a good marinara sauce substitute, too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for dinner last night and they were definitely a hit with the family! I substituted fresh baby spinach for the arugula and Italian sausage for the turkey sausage, and they were absolutely wonderful. Thank you Giada, for a new fun twist on boring pizza! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! I made it for my mom and dad and they loved it. Now they really have faith that i can become a famous cook like Paula Deen and Giada! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were easy to make and pretty good, but I think there was way to much parmesan cheese. Next time I will cut the parmesan in half. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loved these. I added some seasonings to the filling and sprinkled the outside with parm and italian seasoning. Next time we're going to fill them with candian bacon and pineapple. These would be good for a pizza party for the kids. Just roll out the dough and give them a variety of fillings to make their own. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the second time i have made these and they are great. My only problem is the dough. They do not look as pretty as Giadas but they are delicious. My son is a picky eater and he loves them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family absolutely loved this recipe as did I. I did however replace the refrigerator pizza crust with Pilsbury hot roll mix (the pizza crust directions). It was a great idea, turned out fantastic! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family LOVED these pizza pockets! I used the frozen dinner roll dough instead and I think I made it a little harder on myself if I had used the refrigerated pizza dough. But, all in all, they came out delicious. Super recipe, super delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were so good! I didnt follow the recipe to a tea, Like, I couldnt find arugula at my market so I grated a zucchini for a pinch of green, I aso added a little mozzarella cheese to the filling, oh and I also cooked in some onion with my sausage. I did what someone else had said about sprinkling the top with combo of parmesan and italian seasoning just to make it look pretty. I had some left over filling and the scraps from the cut off dough, so I rolled out the dough and made a rustic little pizza pie. Im very pleased with this recipe!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my family and they absolutely fell in love with it, they even asked me to make it next week. This was simple and delicious and is worth trying. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My boyfriend is the pickiest eater that I've ever met. He is so hard to cook for and I was tired of the same old things to eat. So we were watching Giada make these on TV and he said they looked delicious. I made them two nights later and he's still talking about them. They were easy to make and absolutely delicious. Finally, something that we both like and something I can actually make!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We really enjoyed these pizza pockets and they were surprisingly simple to make. I altered the recipe just slightly: I omitted arugula because I didn't have any, but I added 1/3 cup chopped onion and cooked it down with the sausage. I used fat-free cream cheese as well. I didn't egg wash the edges of the pockets nor did I crimp them with a fork. I just pinched them with my fingers...not the prettiest, but it still tasted fantastic! I also sprinkled a little Italian seasoning on each pocket before baking. They cooked right at 15 minutes, and they were a dark golden brown. The end result was very yummy. My husband raved about it. I'd love to serve this when nieces and nephews come over. The recipe filling is very flexible. I might add spinach sometime, maybe some finely chopped pepperoni some other time, or maybe some chopped olives...the possibilities are endless. Wonderful. Thanks Giada! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The kitchen is my least favorite room in the house, but I wanted to make something homemade for dinner. Not only were they easy to make, my boyfriend ate SIX pieces for dinner! When we were done, he looked at me and said, "My mom needs this recipe." That is a HUGE compliment because his mother is an excellent cook. Thank you Giada! I'm going to try more of your recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Quick, easy, crowd pleaser. This is a great recipe to get the kids involved in. Mine love making the edges "pretty" or "painting" the egg wash on them. The first time I followed recipe exactly. The next time, I made a vegetarian version with zucchini, mushrooms, and spinach for my daughter. Another time I cut back the cream cheese and added ricotta cheese to it. Mmmm! Now that I've got it down, I stuff the pockets with different ingredients so each person can have their favorite filling! (Just mark the outside so you know which pocket has what filling). I'm not sure if I'm overstuffing them or what, but I end up with extra dough every time. I just cut the extra dough into strips and make Paula Deen's parmesan bread twists with them to accompany the pockets. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These pizza appetizers were delicious. I will make these with my grandaughter she will love these. Hats off to my favorite chef. Everything Giada makes is delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are very tasty. I would call them mini-calzones because thats kinda like what they are. The sausage plus cream cheese was a nice combo but this is a very versatile recipe....you could put in pepperoni or veggies (red peppers and basil) and it would still taste great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OMG! Thank you Giada for this delicious recipe. I didn't have turkey sausage but I did have ground chicken. It was easy and great. My kids loved it. We will be making more...... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this recipe a number of times using both the turkey sausage and regular Italian sausage. The Italian sausage does provide a bit more flavor but either way these pockets were amazing. Everyone (including my husband who can easily polish off half the lot by himself) loves the pizza pockets. Two thumbs up for one of my favorite Food Nework stars. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were a hit. I used spicy Italian sausage and it was GREAT. I will make these again and again. Probably use chicken next time to make a healthier version. YUM YUM YUM item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was VERY hesistant to make these - I don't really like cream cheese and I didn't think I would like turkey sausage versus the real stuff. What a pleasant surprise. I only made minor changes - I added a bit of pizza sauce and a sprinkle of mozzarella on the inside. I think it would have been overwhelmly cream cheesy otherwise. But WOW - what an awesome recipe! I can't wait to make it again and twist it up with some new ingredients. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published

My husband and I tried this recipe and we both absolutely loved it! I did alter the recipe just a bit...I added some minced garlic to the filling and used Italian sausage instead of turkey sausage. I had a little trouble making nicely shaped triangles out of the squares of pizza dough, so I just folded them in half and made rectangular pockets! The shape doesn't matter - they were just as delicious! I highly recommend this recipe - thanks Giada!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I absolutly love this recipe. I use a homemade Pizza Dough or storebought fresh dough. Its simple and fantastic for a party or a snack.

This fine appetizer is what you expect from italian cooking. I served it to my friends and family before dinner and it got rave reviews... item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I loved this recipe. Based on others' reviews, we did modify the recipe a bit. Instead of arugula, we used frozen spinach. We didn't have sausage, so we used lean ground beef and seasoned it with dried oregano, parsley, basil and paprika. We also sauteed some garlic and onion as well. We also used 2 tubes of crescent roll dough instead of pizza dough and made 8 large patties out of it. I think it would have tasted better with sausage but using ground beef worked out okay. Great recipe and it will make for a fantastic appetizer if we made smaller pieces out of the dough. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used three packages of crescent rolls, and a package of frozen spinach, and 6 links of hot italian sausage, 8oz. of cream cheese, 2/3 cups of grated pecorino romano, double the salt and the pepper. The dough i used made them way too greasy, pizza dough would solve that(Giada's call in the 1st place),but harder to work with. This amount of ingredients made about 50 (with filling left over), perfect for snacks a few nights running and appetizers on Easter. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! I loved the turkey filling. Next time I will use more arugula. Yummy yummy! Makes great leftovers if you just pop them in the oven to warm them up again. Will def. make again!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was fabulous! HOWEVER, I did change it a little bit. I added four stems of fresh basil and I used basic Italian pork sausage instead of turkey. I think it added a ton of flavor. It was a hit in this house and will do it again!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for New Years Eve as an appetizer and I used hot sausage. It was really delicious and easy to make. I liked it better without dipping it in the tomato sauce. Everyone loved them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My kids LOVED these. I think the recipe is perfect as is, with the exception of a little extra spinach. Will definnitly make this again with lots of different fillings. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These pizza pockets were a hit at my dinner party. Everyone wanted to know the recipe. I did use the cresent rolls instead of the pizza dough, very fluffy. I also used pork sausage instead of turkey, which I had in my freezer. I had some leftover stuffing so I used it in an omlette the next morning, yummy! I would also put the stuffing over toasted ciabatta bread. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was even more scrumpscious then I thought. I changed a few things that made this recipe a five star! I added 5 raw minced garlic cloves to the filling (this is what made it 5 stars), instead of parm I used pecorino romano for a stronger flavor, used one ounce of frozen spinach (water removed) instead of fresh & also added a bit of onions before I browned the sausage for more flavor. I made my own chunky marinara: For marinara-sate ? cup carrots, 1/2 cup celery, and one small onion (all veges finley chopped) in olive oil ? add 6 garlic cloves for 30 seconds once veges are tender, then add 2 bay leaves and one 16 oz can crushed tomatos in puree (I like roasted garlic flavor) and cook for about 20-40 min or until thick. This is a take on Giada's marinara. This one is a keeper everyone, Giada has done it again! I made it last night and am considering making it again tonight!! =) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful, you have got to try it item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. My 2 year old loves this. I first tried it with 1 can of pizza dough and I still had half of my filling left. I had a can of Reduced Fat Cresent Rolls and put the mixture in the middle and then folded the sides up and over the top. Make sure it's sealed and then use your egg wash all over and then top with the cheese. It's extra yummy, not so hard and chewy as the pizza dough, and saves even more time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for my wife and daughter two nights in a row because I had some of the stuff left over. I just needed more dough. We all loved it! The second night I made it I added some mozzerella and sprinkled basil on top of the egg wash. It still turned out wonderful! I can see how ANYONE could do ANYTHING with these. This is a versatile dish! item not reviewed by moderator and published

My picky children were begging for seconds with this yummy dinner. It was super easy to make and fun to make with my kids.

Great recipe, Giada! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found these to be a little too salty. I would leave out the additional salt in the filling and the parmesean on top. I would also probably only use 2 oz of cream cheese instead of 4 and 2-3 c. arugula instead of 1 (it really wilts down to nothing). item not reviewed by moderator and published
