P1060493Dough for pizza pocket rising

Pizza Pocket recipe

3 T. yeast

4 c. warm water

2 T. sugar

1/4 c. oil

1 t. salt


Mix warm water and yeast together with sugar. Add other ingredients, except flour. Add flour to mixing bowl and knead until the dough pulls away from the sides and cleans the bowl. It will be fairly stiff, but not too stiff.

Oil bowl and set to rise

P1060496When it is risen, divide in to 2 in. balls.

Roll out into a circle and place your toppings on it. I put either turkey ham and cheese or sauce, pepperoni and cheese.

Fold in half and seal.

P1060500Let rise on a tray and bake at 400 degrees for about 10 to 12 minutes or until browned.



I then put together some Italian noodle casseroles.

P1060491 Along with some Lasagna for dinner.

P1060501 It was really good!

P1060495 The casseroles lined up, ready for the freezer!

P1060498 I also roasted a chicken for other meals, for later.

P1060502 In the end, I think there were 5 Noodle casseroles and 3 bags of pizza pockets for the freezer, although the pizza pockets were already going fast!

    What a great idea to make homemade pizza pockets! My kids will be so happy, I never buy the ones at the store. If freezing for later use, do you bake them first? Also, how long and at what temp do you reheat them from frozen?
