So yeah, I haven't made pizza pockets too much because they're just frustrating for me to deal with.
Recipe from Jeff Mauro
All-purpose flour, for dusting
1 pound pizza dough, divided into 4 balls [NOTE: Buy this in the store or make it yourself. Whichever is easiest for you]
2 cups shredded mozzarella
12 ounces pepperoni, thinly sliced
Grated Parmesan, to taste
Marinara or pizza sauce
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Roll out the dough balls on a lightly floured surface into 4 equal rounds. On half of each round, layer some mozzarella, and then some pepperoni slices.
|I like to add a little cheddar and pizza seasoning to mine too|
|No messy egg wash!! Just fold the bottom up and over the edge, crimping as you go.|
4. Place the pockets on a baking sheet, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with grated Parmesan. Bake until golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with your favorite marinara or pizza sauce on the side.
Oh my goodness gracious are these good!! And SOOOO EASY TO MAKE!!! It seriously just takes a few minutes to put them together, and then they can just hang out on the pan until you're ready to bake them. My next step with this is to see how they freeze. Looooove a Get Ahead opportunity!!
p.s. Remember when I made that jam? Put a tablespoon or two of that with mozzarella cheese in these; dip into a roasted tomato dipping sauce. Feel free to call me when your taste buds have recovered to tell me how awesome that flavor combo is. ;)
