Pizza Pockets

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

The Taco Pockets were such a hit I thought I would try making the pockets again but with pizza flavors! The boys all loved the pepperoni and cheese pockets, they dunked them in marinara sauce. The options for filling these pockets are so endless, I love using the thin crust pizza dough! Now, I didn't eat these pizza pockets. I don't like pepperoni, but lets just say it's because I was making good decisions on my diet. So hows the diet going you ask? I've lost zero pounds and Justin's lost 5... I swear he just thinks of losing weight and it falls off him. Don't feel sorry for me though, I spent the last 4 days at the lake eating out every day and gorging myself on omelets and muffins :-)

Ingredients
1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated thin-crust pizza dough
Mozzarella cheese, sliced or shredded
Pepperoni, slided
Optional Ingredients
Sprinkling of Salt, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning
Marinara sauce for dipping

Directions
Roll the pizza dough out onto your pan with non-stick foil or cooking spray. With a pizza cutter divide the dough into four sections. Layer the pepperoni and cheese. I did as many layers that I could fit when I folded the dough up in the middle, it turned out to be 3 layers of pepperoni and cheese. Fold the ends of the dough over the pepperoni and cheese. Use a fork to crimp the sides together. When they are all filled, folded, and crimped. Sprinkle with some salt, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes or until browned.

Ole Sweetie-Pi would be over the moon with this one. I haven't been a fan of canned doughs, but I am changing my mind. This is such a terrific idea that I cannot pass it up and, who am I kidding, I certainly don't always have the time or the desire to make my own doughs. Thanks for sharing such a terrific and delicious idea.

I was at the store today and saw the crust on sale so I immediately thought of you and bought the rest of the ingredients! I can't wait to try it. I want to try it with pesto sauce, chicken, and cheese. I don't know if I have the guts though! :)
