Grilled Pizza Pockets

Servings: 6 pizza pockets
Serving size: 1 pizza pocket
Approximate nutritional information:
Calories: 307 * Carbs: 43 * Fat: 6 * Protein: 17 * Fiber: 2


1 recipe pizza dough (enough for a 12 inch crust pizza)
3/4 cup pizza sauce
1 1/2 cups of mozzarella cheese
16 slices turkey pepperoni

Set your indoor grill to about 375 -400 degrees.

Step 1. Separate the dough into 6 pieces.

Step 2. Form each piece into a circle approximately 7 x 7 inches.
Step 3. On one end of the circle place 1/4 cup of cheese, 2 tablespoons of sauce, and 4 slices of turkey pepperoni. I started and ended with the cheese this way as it melts it forms a barrier between the dough and the sauce.
Step 4. Fold over the dough and pinch it closed all the way around.
Step 5. Grill on each side until dough is cooked all the way through about 5-7 minutes on each side.
Step 6: Remove from grill and rest for about 3 minutes. The inside is very hot so be careful.
*** Please note you can easily make this pizza pocket recipe in an oven. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or so depending on your oven

Make Ahead and Freezer Instructions

The pizza dough can easily be made ahead of time and frozen for this meal. Additionally, these pizza pockets can be made completely and then frozen. After they cool wrap in plastic wrap, store in freezer bag, and place in the freezer.

Reheating Instructions

This pizza pocket can be taken from the freezer and reheated in the microwave. To do so, take out of the plastic wrap, place paper towel around it, and microwave on high for about 2 minutes or so. If you like a crispier crust you can reheat in toaster oven or regular oven at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes or until hot.
