Pizza (or anything) Pockets {Recipe}

So both of my kids seem to love anything that has pockets, or that has to do with pizza.  One day, I was willing to experiment with both and so we had fun with it.  This is what I did to come up with our delicious pockets:

We started with two tubes of already made Pillsbury Pizza Thin Crust Pizza dough.  This made 8 pockets, and each were a decent size. 

We started by cutting the roll of dough in half.

We set aside one half and unrolled the other, and then cut it in half.

I had all of our ingredients pre-chopped and on a tray ready to use.  I did this the same day I went grocery shopping, so this was fun, I grabbed little bits of all the produce that we would use in the days to come: 1/2 a pepper, one little floret off the broccoli, a handful of black olives, half a zucchini, 3-4 mushrooms and a half a tomato, and some spinach.  I also used a can of pizza sauce, and opened up the alfredo sauce we would use the next day in fettucine alfredo (incidentally, my husband made that, and also threw in some of those mushrooms and zucchini and it was fantastic!).  We also had pepperonis, mozzarella cheese, and some diced chicken I bought to top off salads with.

We spread sauce on half of the dough (pizza sauce on left, alfredo on right)

And then topped the sauce off with all the toppings.

then, fold over the dough, and take a fork and press in all around the edges to seal.

I then also took a basting brush to my margarine tub...

And gently brushed over the top of the pockets to help them turn that wonderful golden brown color.

Don't they look delicious?

They were golden brown and crispy all over after about 7 minutes in the oven set at 425 degrees.

This next picture they had started to cool so the cheese wasn't as gooey as it was when they first came out, but they were wonderful!

My favorite combination was Alfredo Sauce, Spinach, Tomato, Broccoli, Black Olives and Cheese.  Nom!
