Pizza Pocket Recipe (using the Hamilton Beach pizza crust recipe)
Today I’m sharing with you my favourite homemade Pizza Pocket recipe. This recipe is SO easy and tastes delicious. IF i’m only making a few pizza pockets, I’ll freeze half of the dough for another day. It turns out just as delicious another day. I’m not sure how long it stays in the freezer for but I’ve had a batch in for a few weeks and it still turned out an amazing crust. Just make sure to take it out of the freezer the night before, or morning of if you are planning on making them for dinner.
Make sure to really flour your hands and the surface that you will be using to roll out your dough.
This takes between 2 and 3 minutes but it is a great stress buster and a fun way to teach your kids the process of making their own food.
The dough portion of this pocket is equal to 5 points on green, and is 1/8ths of the full batch of dough – just perfectly sized for a pocket.
Make sure to poke a bunch of holes in the dough before adding your favourite sauce. This helps the pocket to release heat and not too puffy.
Next add 2 tablespoons of your favourite pasta or pizza sauce (1 point).
Make sure to leave a lot of room around the edges, even more then I did in the video to make a proper seal. It’s not a big deal but the sauce can burn if it’s outside the pocket.
Next take a fork to make your pocket look super fancy and pro. And again, add a few air holes to make sure the pocket cooks just right.
Here is the finished product after between 12 and 15 minutes in the oven at 375 degrees (cooking time will vary). Be careful – they get really hot on the inside!
