Pizza Puffs !


This idea was given to me from a very dear friend & foodie from Illinois ! I am attempting to give his idea justice. This fold over individual portioned pizzas are a type of Calzone but Chicago style.  The only difference is in Chicago these are deep fried & not baked. OK, Deep Fried Pizza Pockets, hmmmm, even I am not up to trying a deep fried pizza! But if you wish feel free to deep fry these but I am going to stick to the baking process & leave the deep frying to you more adventurous souls! If I came close to these yummy treats hurray! If I did not they still are delicious & a fun twist from regular pizza! Enjoy them FOODIES & Thank You Frank for the idea!
1&1/2 LBS to 2 LBS meat ( ground beef, sausage, ground turkey, steak sandwich meat or chicken, you choose or go meatless if you wish!)
2 Medium Onions chopped coarse
1 Large Green Pepper Chopped Coarse
4 Large Mushrooms Chopped Coarse
1 Cup of your favorite jarred pizza or spaghetti sauce ( I used Prego Chunky Mushroom)
2 TBS Olive Oil
2 TBS Chopped Garlic
Shredded Pizza Cheese
Cook meat using oil if not using ground beef, add vegetables & cook until soft. Add sauce & cook until hot. Keep warm until ready to fill Pizza Puffs.
Italian Seasoning, Parsley, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Coarse Sea Salt for sprinkling over each Pizza Puff 

4 Cups Flour
2 TSP Salt
2 TSP Sugar
2 TBS Olive Oil
3 Cups Warm Water
1 Packet Yeast
Stir Flour, salt & sugar together. Stir water & yeast together stir until yeast melts. add oil & stir again. Now dump into flour mixture & stir until just combined. Cover & let rise until double about 1 hour. Once dough is ready, dump out onto well floured surface. Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut out circles about 8 inches in circumference . Take each circle & place about a loose 1/2 cup of filling in the center of the circle. top with 2 heaping TBS of the cheese. Fold dough over to make a crescent. Crimp edges with a wide tined fork. Lay each puff on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle the toppings from above on each puff. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until browned. Serves 8 single Pizza Puffs !
