TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 can (15 ounces) chili with beans
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 can (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons cornmeal, divided
  • Sour cream and salsa


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the chili, cheese and cilantro. Roll pizza dough into a 12-in. square; cut into four 6-in. squares. Spoon 1/2 cup chili mixture onto the center of each square; brush edges of dough with water. Fold one corner of each square over filling to the opposite corner, forming a triangle. Using a fork, crimp edges to seal.
  • 2. Sprinkle 1-1/2 teaspoons cornmeal over a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Place pockets in pan; prick tops with a fork. Sprinkle with remaining cornmeal.
  • 3. Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with sour cream and salsa. Yield: 4 servings.
