Dishing It Up: Freezer Meals--Pizza Pockets

Its August, and back to school time is in full swing.   The kids here don't go back until the last week of August, so I plan to spend this month getting as much food into the freezer as I can (plus also entertaining quite a few houseguests!), and I'll be sharing some of that food with you.

In fact, the Dishing It Up theme for the month of August is freezer cooking, and my friends over at Thrifty Texas Penny, Pary Moppins, Deals From MS Do, and Dearly Domestic will all be bringing you some of their freezer recipes as well!

PLUS, we will be giving away two $5 Amazon codes this month!   One blogger that links up a recipe will be selected at random to win the first one, and one commenter will be selected at random from one of the recipe links (also selected at random), so after you check out my recipe, leave a comment, and click through the linky to visit the other recipes, and leave them comments, also!  If you have a freezer recipe, link up!



My recipe is homemade pizza pockets.

Ingredients:

Pizza Dough  (I used the recipe from my bread machine book, but you can totally get the store bought kind!)
1 jar of pizza sauce
Pretty much whatever you like on a pizza!  I used pepperoni, italian sausage, and cheese.


I followed the bread machine instructions to make the pizza dough.  Once it was done, I rolled it out semi flat  and used a glass to cut circles.



Then, I rolled out the circles even flatter, placed them on a baking sheet, and put the toppings on.  Then I covered them with a second circle of dough, and pressed them closed.



After that, follow the baking instructions for your pizza dough, then eat them, or bag them up and freeze them.





My bread machine dough recipe makes enough for 4 thin crust pizzas, so I make these up the other night when we were already making pizzas for dinner, just to use up the extra dough and sauce/toppings.  I already had the table all floured up and I already had the oven heated up, so it wasn't much extra trouble at all.

My daughter, the one who hates pizza, until we go to make pizza and then all of a sudden she likes pizza until it is baked and she takes a bite, and then she remembers that she doesn't like pizza....well she saw me bagging them up and putting them in the freezer.  She asked "Are those for my lunch box?"  I said "Are you going to eat them?"  She thought about it for a second and said "Um....no!"   LOL


Here are the other freezer recipes that have been shared so far this month.  Don't forget to add your own if you have one, and hop around leaving comments on the other recipes to increase your chances of winning!

I saw these at the Dishing It Up site. Great idea to have a stash of homemade pizza pockets in the freezer. You have my mind going...lots of other flavors possible too.
