Pizza Pockets

“WHAT??” Pizza pockets are incredible but when you buy them from the store you probably are eating 50 delicious ingredients that may not be so delicious for your body. I love a good pizza pocket and they will forever remind me of driving to Central Washington with my sister. We used to drive the long drive and stop at the half way point at a truck stop. This truck stop had the best pizza pockets to date. I don’t know how to express the incrediblness (not that that is a word) of this pocket without you actually trying it. You may be asking, how can a pizza pocket actually be delicious when it comes from a truck stop? Well, let me tell you. “It is the best I’ve ever had!!!” I’m confident my sister could verify that. :)

My sister called me on her drive to visit my parents a few weeks ago as she stopped to embark on this incredible pocket. She was reminding me of our journey together, years past. It’s probably been about 4-5 years since I actually have had it! I miss them, oh do I miss them.

Today I made a delicious pizza pocket but considering I do not hold a truck stop at my house, they are nothing alike, but they are worth making. :)

Ingredients:

  • Pizza Crust or Pie Crust (Homemade or store bought)
  • Pepperoni
  • Cheese
  • Onion, finely minced
  • Salami
  • Olives (optional)

For the crust, follow the instructions for preparation on the link above.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Once the crust is made, roll dough out onto a floured surface into a rectangle.
