Pizza Pockets

Pizza pockets are an easy homemade convenience food!

Ingredients:

Filling:

You need about 3 pounds of filling {Sausage, Pepperoni, Ham, Mushrooms, Ground Meat, whatever you want!}
3-4 cups cheese

Sauce:
1/2 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 can tomato sauce
3 tablespoons oregano
salt and pepper
{Blend together; I use a food chopper to make a paste like sauce}

Dough:
9 t. active dry yeast
4 c. warm water
1 t. salt
8 t. olive oil
8-10 cups flour

Directions:

Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large mixing bowl. Add salt, olive oil, and 2 1/2 c. flour. Mix until a soft dough is formed. Add remaining flour, 1/2 c. at a time, until dough is no longer sticky. Knead for 2 minutes.

Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise for at least one hour. Punch dough down. Roll dough into 40 even balls.

Flatten each ball of dough. Add sauce on it, a tablespoon or so of the filling mixture and then cheese. Close the pocket and let rise for approximately 10 minutes. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Let cool and put in a bag to freeze!

Makes approximately 40 pizza pockets!!

Ways to make Pizza Pockets cheaper:

  • Buy your yeast in bulk! It’s much cheaper than the packets!
  • Use home canned tomatoes.

  1. Yummy! I found your blog through Money Saving Mom and have been browsing your archives. I’m 27 weeks preggo with my 2nd and I did the freezer meals with the first, and am starting to gear up to do them again. You’ve got some great recipes!

  2. I feel stupid for asking this, but I wanted to make sure “t.” is teaspoon.
    I am going to make these this weekend!
