Flaky puff pastry wrapped around pepperoni, cheese, and a sweet, tangy sauce — Dorothy’s Pizza Pockets are portable and delicious!

Dorothy’s Pizza Pockets are perfect for tailgating and watch parties — they are super simple to make, you can even make them ahead and freeze them .. and they are perfectly portable, too!


A common misconception about Dorothy Lynch is that it’s “just another French dressing.” Don’t let the color fool ya, it may look like French dressing, but it tastes nothing like it.

Dorothy Lynch has a tomato base, unlike French dressing that is oil based.  It has got a thick and creamy texture, and its sweet & spicy flavor is one that everyone will enjoy. This zesty flavor works well as a marinade, an addition to all sorts of recipes, and it makes a super dip. There is a reason it’s at the condiment station at Nebraska sporting events and arenas, it's a Nebraska staple! 

It tastes like home because it originated as a homemade dressing. Dorothy Lynch got its start in the 1940's at the Legion Club in St. Paul, Nebraska.  Dorothy made her homemade dressing for the restaurant, and people fell in love with it.  They even brought in their own bottles to have them filled with her delicious dressing. Dorothy Lynch Salad Dressing & Condiment has continued to evolve and is now available in Home Style and Light & Lean. Dorothy Lynch contains no MSG, cholesterol, or trans fats and is gluten free. 



Dorothy's Pizza Pockets dip

Sure — you could walk around with a big dripping piece of cheese pizza, but if you’re anything like me, you’d most likely be wearing it.  That’s why these portable pepperoni pizza pockets are so awesome.  Well, that and the way they taste.  

These pizza pockets aren’t made with pizza crust though.  They are made with puff pastry, to add even more deliciousness to them.  That buttery seasoned flaky pocket is the perfect home for two kinds of cheese and mini pepperoni.  The sauce, however, is a little something different than what you might be used to.

The sauce in these puff pastry pepperoni pizza pockets is made of a combination of marinara and Dorothy Lynch. The Dorothy Lynch gives the sauce a sweet and tangy, somewhat spicy twist that you can’t help but utter the words “yummmmm.” Even with your mouth full.  


  • 1 sheet Puff Pastry

  • 1/4 Cup Dorothy Lynch Salad Dressing & Condiment (+ more for dipping!)

*Note: They take way less time in the air fryer, but depending on the size of your fryer, you may only be able to make a couple at a time.
