This is a great way for the kids to enjoy pizza at school! My kids don’t like when I send them pizza as the cheese gets stuck to the foil and the toppings fall off….this is the perfect solution for that problem! Sorry I don’t have better pictures to share, made these in the early morning, had to get lunch ready and off to school;)
You can make the dough ahead of time as I did, I made it last night and left it in the fridge.
You can fill it with all the toppings you would for a pizza!:)
- Mozzarella cheese
- Any pizza topping of your choice
- Pizza sauce
- Egg yolk for the top of pizza pocket
What you will need for dough:
- 5 cups flour
- 2 cups warm water
- 2 and 1/4 tsp yeast
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/3 cup olive oil to mix in while making dough (approx I don’t really measure)
Take yeast, sugar and mix in with the water in a large bowl, add the flour and start forming into dough. Knead and drizzle in the olive oil until its firm yet soft takes a few minutes. I use my Kitchen Aid mixer with dough hook attachment for this.
Transfer dough to a greased bowl, cover with cling wrap and a tea or kitchen towel, till doubles in size, punch air out of dough.
Pull a hand full of dough and roll out on a floured surface to make a circle. Spread pizza sauce and top with cheese and toppings, fold over and press edges down with your fingers.
Brush top with egg yolk, bake at 475 on a greased pan that is lined with parchment paper, till golden brown. Remove from pan onto cutting board or plate to cool. Enjoy:)
