Spinach Chicken Alfredo Pockets

One of my favorite pizzas is Spinach Chicken Alfredo!  I love the combination of flavors.
I just kind of threw this recipe together, but you can adjust it to more or less of what you like.


2-3 cups cooked chicken-shredded (I used a rotisserie chicken just to save on time)
1 (16oz) jar Alfredo sauce
1 (10 oz) bag fresh spinach
1 tsp. salt
1 (8 oz) bag shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup mushrooms (optional) – I didn’t use this because my hubby doesn’t really like them
I threw in about a 1/4 cup of sun dried tomatoes for more flavor, but it is completely optional
3 (13.8 oz) cans refrigerated pizza dough

Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix shredded chicken, alfredo sauce, spinach, salt, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, and mushrooms together by hand in a large bowl.
I rolled out the dough and cut to make rectangles for pockets.  Place some of chicken mixture on one half of the rectangle dough leavining a 1 inch border.  Fold the other half of dough over and press edges together until sealed.
After stuffing and folding each pocket, place on baking sheet.  Whisk egg and 1 Tbsp. water together and brush over the top of each pocket.
Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes or until very golden brown on top. Cool 10 minutes before serving.

If you don’t want little pockets, another option you could do is:
Unfold one can of dough onto prepared baking sheet.
Gently stretch or roll into an 11-inch square; cut in half diagonally, forming two triangles.
Place about 1 1/2 cups chicken mixture in the center of the triangle, leaving a 1 inch border on each side.
Fold 1 side of triangle over filling, rolling up edges of dough to seal.
Cut a small slit in top of calzone to allow steam to escape.
Repeat with remaining dough and check mixture.
Bake at 425 F for 15 minutes or until Golden Brown.

  19. Zannid

    Hmm, I like spinach, chicken alfredo, AND hot pockets! I may have to give this a try! Just stopping by to say thank you for following my blog, and following you back! I'm a bit new to cooking myself, and while I'm pretty good at pulling things off, I like that you say "get refrigerated pizza dough". It's so frustrating to crack open a recipe book to page 89, only to find out you have to make the things on page 18 and 192 just to have all of the ingredients needed!

  20. Meg Issacs

  39. Mrs. Ironman

    I made this recipe tonight and it was delish! It was a bit salty though, so next time I make it, I'll probably add something sweet, like tomatoes to counter that. Really yummy though! I added the recipe to my blog, but linked it back to your recipe here!
