Homemade Pizza Rolls


These came out pretty good.  This recipe is still a work in progress.

This recipe will make 6-12 pockets

2 3/4 to 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt (I used coarse kosher salt)
2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar. Let it set for a few minutes until foamy (if you’re using fast-rise yeast, you can just add the yeast with the flour and go on).

Stir in oil, salt, and flour.

Knead 5 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes.

Divide dough into 6-12 pieces, or your desired size

Roll out each piece into a rectangle.

Top half of each with filling of choice, keeping back from edges so it will seal well.

Fold the other 1/2 over the filling and pinch sides together or seal with a fork.

Poke a couple steam vents in the tops

Freeze for later or bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.

*When you poke the steam vents in the top, you can mark them with a letter so you know what is in each one.

*I mixed sauce, cheese and topping as my filling. Go easy on the sauce! You can always dip it in extra sauce after baking.

Hot Pocket? Calzone? Close enough for Pizza Friday


I was not going to be home this morning to make Pizza so last night I found a recipe and put together some “Hot Pockets”

I made the dough, added the filling then froze them.

I popped them in the oven this afternoon while I was putting grocery’s away.  They came out pretty good.  I need to tweak them some more.  Work on making them more personal size because there were big enough for Ed and I to each have half.

I made cheese, pepperoni and Hawaiian.

These were more calzone like instead of a Hot Pocket.

They will be great to have on hand to toss in the oven for a quick snack.
