Easy Homemade Pizza Pockets
- Skillet and tongs
- 2 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup warm water
- Oil for frying
- 1/2 lb. sausage browned and drained
- 6 oz. sliced pepperoni
- 1 cup pasta sauce (from a jar, like Prego or Ragu)
- 8 oz. shredded mozzarella
- Preheat oil in skillet to 450 degrees F.
- In a mixing bowl, combine flour, milk and water.
- Stir into a soft dough.
- Knead lightly.
- Divide dough into 8 portions.
- Pat each portion into a circle, approximately 1/3" thick, give or take. (You want the dough to be somewhat thin, because it will rise a great deal during cooking, but thick enough that it does not tear when filled.)
- Spread each circle with about 2 T of pasta sauce, leaving a border of dough around the edge.
- Sprinkle one half of the circle with mozzarella cheese.
- Add cooked, crumbled sausage and pepperoni.
- Add a little more mozzarella on top of meat, if desired.
- Fold dough circle in half, enclosing the toppings.
- Gently stretch the dough as needed, and press edges together to seal. If necessary, dip fingers in water to wet the dough and make it stick!
- Fry pizza pockets in oil until golden on both sides, turning with tongs halfway through.
