Cuisine: Italian
Warm pockets of crusty, cheesy, saucy goodness? Yes, please.
  • pizza dough
  • marinara
  • cheese
  • pizza fillings
  1. Preheat oven to 475F.
  2. Divide a standard pizza dough recipe into four equal parts and form into balls. On a floured surface, flatten dough balls into1/4" discs about a foot across.
  3. Add a few tablespoons of sauce on the right half of the dough leaving an inch of dry space around the outer edge. Add your choice of fillings, careful not to stuff them too full or they'll burst while baking.
  4. Dampen the outer edge of the circle, fold the left half over the right and press the edges together firmly to create a pocket. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Brush with olive oil and bake for 15-18 minutes, until the tops become lightly golden.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  7. Serve with a small bowl of warm marinara sauce for dipping.
