Quick and Easy Pizza Pockets
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup pizza sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
18 slices pepperoni
3/4 cup cooked and crumbled sausage
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
In a medium bowl, whisk together the water, yeast, and sugar. Let sit five minutes, or until bubbly. Add the flour, oil, and salt, and mix until a dough forms. Knead gently, adding more flour as needed, to form a soft dough. Allow to rise for 30-60 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Divide dough into 6 pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a circle. Spread two tablespoons of pizza sauce on one side of each piece of dough. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup cheese, top with three slices of pepperoni, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons crumbled sausage. Pull the other half of the dough over the top of filling and seal the edges closed. Using a fork, pierce the top of the pockets once or twice to allow steam to escape. Brush the tops of the pockets with a little olive oil, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
