Homemade Pizza Pockets

by Rebekahcooked up on December 30, 2015

One day I was home alone for dinner and decided to do something silly. And fun. I made myself some pizza pockets. Homemade ones. I probably don’t need to tell you it was a great idea.

Once upon a time in high school I was going to sports practice every day. Depending on the day, I might be home too late for dinner, and so sometimes I’d reach for the freezer for dinner. I definitely have had a few Hot Pockets in my day. There’s a nostalgia factor.

So on a day when I had been hard at work, a homemade pizza pocket sounded pretty awesome.

And it was awesome. And I didn’t even have to work that hard. Especially because I bought prepared pizza crust, something I never do!

These babies were totally fun and worth it. And, you can totally freeze them and warm them up in an oven later (that’s what I did!) But I totally ate two for dinner that night.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup AP flour
  • 2 tsp. of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 oz of butter, cubed
  • 2 teaspoons of freshly chopped chives
  • 2 oz of finely grated Asiago or Parmesan

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne pepper.
  3. Add the cubed butter to the mixture and cut with a pastry cutter until they have the texture of crumbs. Stir together the chives and almost all of the cheese (reserve a couple tablespoons for sprinkling).
  4. Whisk together the eggs and milk, then add to the dry ingredients and stir together until just combined.
  5. Turn out on to a floured work surface and pat gently into a layer about 1 inch thick. Cut out using a small biscuit cutter or a small glass and place shoulder-to-shoulder on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake for ten minutes, then turn the temperature down to 400. Bake for another 5 minutes or until golden brown.
