Baked Inside Out Pizzas "ISOP's" - only 3 ingredients!

October 2, 2021

Have you ever heard of an “ISOP”? My husband grew up in Delco. Otherwise known as Delaware County in Philadelphia. If we are ever in the area, we always stop by Pappou's Pizza Pub, on Baltimore Pike, for his favorite pizza treat! Last week we had a football game nearby so of course we stopped in. I have been craving them ever since.

An ISOP a delicious pizza pocket that is stuffed with cheese and sauce and is thrown into the deep fryer! It is sinfully delicious! Here is my somewhat healthier version that you can bake at home. It’s just 3 ingredients and it is SO easy. So take the night off and have the kids make dinner with this fast and easy recipe!!

Baked ISOP's - Inside Out Pizzas


2 cans of crescent rolls

Marinara sauce

Mozzarella cheese, shredded

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Open the crescent rolls and use a pizza cutter to easily separate them into triangles.

  3. Use the palm of your hand to flatten the triangles out and make them bigger.

  4. Place 8 flattened triangles onto a flat cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper.

  5. Spread the sauce onto the triangle but make sure that you don’t spread the sauce to the edge. Leave 1/4” margin around the edges.

  6. Put cheese on top of the sauce.

  7. Place the other 8 remaining triangles on top and crimp the edges with a fork to keep the filling inside while baking.

  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.

Here is the original Delco Pappou's Pizza Pub ISOP that inspired my bake at home recipe...
