Homemade Pizza Hot Pockets

What You’ll Need

Lavash Wrap:
Alex likes to use Lavash wraps as my “crust” for the hot pockets. She buys them at Trader Joe’s, but you can also buy them at Walmart! Lavash is a fully baked flatbread that is usually lower in sodium, less doughy and chewy, and generally contains less oil.

Garlic Butter:
To brush on the lavash wrap! More flavor!

Pizza Sauce:
Alex also likes the pizza sauce from Trader Joe’s, but you can use any marinara sauce you like! You could make a homemade sauce, or even use alfredo or BBQ sauce too!

Mozzarella Cheese:
With any pizza, you have to have shredded mozzarella cheese!

Toppings could be, but are not limited to, pepperoni, ham, sausage, bell peppers, red onion, mushrooms, pineapple, fresh basil, olives, and parmesan cheese.

Olive Oil:
Alex likes to coat the outsides of the pizza hot pockets with a little olive oil. This helps make them crispy and golden on the outsides!


There isn’t really a recipe, more of a method! Once you have your desired sauces and toppings, you can layer them in the center of your lavash wrap and cook them up on the stove.



  • Lavash Wraps
  • Garlic Butter
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Toppings: pepperoni, ham, sausage, bell peppers, red onion, mushrooms, pineapple, fresh basil, olives, and/or parmesan cheese.
  • Olive Oil


  1. Heat a pan on your stovetop to medium heat.
  2. Butter the lavash wrap with a little garlic butter.
  3. Layer the pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and desired toppings inside the wrap in a circle.
  4. Fold the lavash wrap up starting from opposite sides, then repeat with the remaining two opposite sides until it’s all sealed up.
  5. Brush the outside of the wrap with a little olive oil, then place it seam-side down in the pan. Put a little pressure on the top of the wrap to distribute the heat.
  6. Brush the other side with olive oil, and flip and cook until golden brown.
  7. Slice on the diagonal and enjoy!
