- Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly-floured surface and cut the dough into pairs of roughly 6?-squares.
- Pile your filling into the center of a square.
- Wet the edges of the square with water, using your finger or a pastry brush, and place another dough square on top.
- Press the edges together, crimping them with a fork to seal the pocket.
- Place the pockets on a greased baking sheet and bake them at 400 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes or until the crust is golden.
- Remove the pockets from the oven, let them cool for 5 to 10 minutes, and serve them with warmed pizza sauce or another dipping sauce of your choice.
- You can put the sauce inside the pocket, or serve it warmed on the side for dipping.
- These are easy to make and a great build-your-own family meal to get your kids involved with cooking.
- Leftover pizza pockets can be stored in the refrigerator or the freezer in a sealed container.
- Excess pizza dough will keep for several days in the refrigerator in a sealed container.
