    Serves: 6


    pizza p ...

    Units: US | Metric




    1. 1
        Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar. Let it set for a few  minutes until foamy (if you're using fast-rise yeast, you can just  add the yeast with the flour and go on). Then stir in oil, salt, and  flour. Knead 5 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes.
    2. 2
        Divide dough into 6 pieces. Roll and pat each piece into a circle  (about 6-inches across or so). Top half of each circle with filling  of choice, keeping back from edges so it will seal well. Fold the  other 1/2 of circle over the filling and pinch sides together or seal  with a fork. Poke a couple steam vents and bake for 20 minutes at 375°F.
    3. 3
        For pizza pockets, fill this with a little pizza sauce, then mushrooms, pepperoni, cheese, etc. Also, try with cream soup, chopped cooked chicken and steamed broccoli and some shredded cheese. Use  your leftovers and imagination to create something special!

      This was a huge hit with my family and I will be making it again and again! For the filling I sauteed onions and garlic in a bit of EVOO. Then I added a can of drained black beans and a can of drained corn, plus a chopped chipotle in adobo sauce and 1/2 tsp thyme. Then I added 1/3 cup of chicken broth and cooked it down until the liquid evaporated. I tossed about 1/3 of a block of cubed cream cheese into the black bean and corn mixture until it was melted. I stuffed the pockets with leftover shredded pork, the black bean mixture and topped it with a Mexican cheese blend. They were spectacular! The only thing missing was some fresh cilantro, which unfortunately I didn't have on hand. This will be a go-to meal when I have leftover pork, but I can't wait to try lots of other fillings in this delicious and easy to make dough!

      A new and exciting day...I'm finally letting go of my clipped-but-never-made recipes for hot pockets. Fabulous dough that I doubled using about 5 cups of flour, letting it rise for about 1/2 hour. I used packaged frozen meatballs cut in half, homemade sauce, mozzarella and Romano cheeses for the filling, brushing liberally the top crust with my other new found recipe Tip: No Egg Wash Tip and sprinkling with more Romano. I know, peoples lives just aren't meant to be this exciting.
