Servings:  8

**Note: Video shows 4 pockets, written recipe serves 8**

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 package Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage, cut on the bias

1 cup diced green pepper

1 cup diced onion

1 cup sliced mushrooms

Salt and pepper

2 pounds pre-made pizza dough, cut into 8 equal (4 ounce) pieces

1 cup marinara sauce, plus more for dipping

1½ cups low-fat shredded mozzarella


1. Preheat the oven to 375℉/190℃.

2. Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil. Add the sausage and cook on one side for 4-5 minutes. Flip to brown other side. 

3. Add the onions, green peppers, and mushrooms. Cook until softened, 3-5 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.

4. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out each ball of dough into a round disc.


5. Spoon a small amount of marinara sauce in the center, followed by sausage, vegetables, and cheese.  Fold the disc in half and pinch to seal the edges. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. 

6. Optional: Coat pockets with egg wash before baking.

7. Bake until golden brown and crispy, about 15-18 minutes.  

8. Dip the pockets in additional marinara sauce.

9. Enjoy!
