Servings 6 pizza pockets

Ingredients
  

For the dough

  • 1 large egg
  • 6 tbsp milk
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
  • pinch salt
  • 3/4 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup butter cold

For the filling

  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • melted butter

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  • Begin by mixing egg, milk, and garlic in an electric mixer (with a dough hook, if you have one).
  • In a separate bowl, sift together parmesan, salt, baking powder.
  • Cut your cold butter into cubes and add into your dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter to blend all of the ingredients together.
  • Add the flour and butter mixture into your wet ingredients, while mixing on medium speed.
  • Once the dough has formed, sprinkle a clean working surface + your rolling pin with flour.
  • Roll the dough so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Use your cookie cutter to cut them into heart shapes.
  • Place each heart-shaped dough on your lined baking sheet.
  • Fill every other heart-shaped dough with tomato paste and cheese. Top with another heart-shape and use a fork to press & seal all around the edges.
  • Brush each pizza pocket with melted butter and bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until the crust starts to turn golden brown.
