Stuffed with a pizza-style filling, these special sandwiches surprise you with a burst of flavor in every bite. They were popular with the preschool set at our son's dinosaur-theme birthday party...but you can be sure adults will love them, too! — Robin Werner, Brush Prairie, Washington

Nutritional Facts

1 pizza pocket with 2-1/2 teaspoons sauce equals 183 calories, 5 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 33 mg cholesterol, 429 mg sodium, 27 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 8 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, butter, salt and 2-1/4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Roll dough into a 14-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Cut with a 3-in. round cookie cutter. Reroll scraps to cut a total of 24 circles. Place 1 teaspoon pizza sauce and a slice of pepperoni in the centers of 12 circles.
  3. Combine the pastrami, ham and cheese; place equal amounts over pepperoni. Top each with 1/2 teaspoon pizza sauce. Cover with remaining circles; press edges with a fork to seal.
  4. Place on greased baking sheets. Brush with egg. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Warm remaining pizza sauce; serve with pizza pockets. Yield: 1 dozen.

The whole family loved it. My daughter is a picky eater and she ate everything but the edges. A fun kid recipe and tasty for everyone.

I am 8 years old. I chose this recipe for my turn to cook on family night. My whole family loved it so much they couldn't stop eating. This was the first thing I have ever cooked that was homemade.

These are great. I was looking for something to take to the football game for my family of 6. These are great to throw into a cooler and everyone can grab what they want.

MY REVIEW

This recipe has the best pizza dough I have ever found. My kids love to help make the pockets. They fill them whith whatever they like. To save us some $ we make large batch of them in different shapes depending on the filling. After they cool we vacuume seal them individually then freeze them. For a quick lunch you simply have to remove one from the freezer, cut a slit in the bag and microwave for a couple minutes. I have recommended this recipe to all my friends that have kids.
