      I have been looking for this recipe for a long time. This is basically a large pizza "pop", about 7 inches long, and 4 inches deep at the biggest depth. Even though you stick them in the oven for a while, they brown lightly. Filling and healthy, especially if you use low-fat cheese and go easy on the meat. Be careful to seal the edges. Poke holes in the top with your fork before you bake them (helps prevent pocket from exploding.)

      This was a keeper for my family! I made some adjustments, mostly because boys are not keen on too many details or ingredients. So I made the dough as specified, which was TRULY AMAZING by itself. Then once I rolled them out I spooned some pizza sauce (store bought), added a handful of mozzarella cheese and cut up some pepperoni. Then I folded the dough over and sealed the pocket (with a fork) and drizzled some Olive Oil on top. These were delicious. Next time I will try with all the original ingredients. Thank you for posting! As a side note: Both my 17 and 7 year old boys are able to make these without any complaints. . . Which I Love!

      These were yummy. I added 1 tsp garlic and 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning to the dough to make it more flavorful. Also, they came out rather large, more adult sized, so my second batch I divided them into 12 parts and made kid sized pockets. I used my own sauce. Also, the egg used at the end needs to be added to the ingredient list. Wonderful!!
