- 1 T. (or 1 packet) yeast
- 1 c. warm water, divided
- 1 t. sugar
- 1/4 c. melted butter, cooled to room temperature
- 2 1/2 – 3 c. flour
- 1 1/2 t. salt
2. Add 2 c. flour and the salt. Mix for two minutes. Work in as much remaining flour as needed to make a dough that is smooth but not sticky. Knead on a floured surface or continue beating for about 10 minutes. Add a bit more flour if the dough starts to get sticky while kneading.
3. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover. Let rise for 1 hour. Punch down dough, cover and let rise for at least another 30 minutes.
4. Then divide the dough into 10-12 balls.
I also sprinkle some garlic, pizza seasonings and sometimes some Parmesan cheese on my pockets.
Pop them in the oven and cook on 350 for about 20 minutes or until they start to brown. As you can see some of my pockets started to pop open. They don't usually do this but I kind of over loaded them this time trying to get too much yummy goodness inside. You can always just put chunks of ham and cheese inside as well instead of making pizza pockets. I enjoy having two different things to choose from.
