First I made the dough and waited for it to rise.
I rolled out the small piece of dough and put the taco meat and cheese in the middle. Normally, I would have heated the meat to make it easier to scoop but without a microwave, it seemed easier to just scoop cold.
Then, I folded over the two sides and smooshed them together. I sealed the ends so that none of the insides could get out. I put them with the sealed side on the bottom of my baking sheet. I made three because that is how much taco meat I had left.
Here is what they look like after they are baked. Aren't they huge??
I thought that I would eat one and my husband would eat the other two but we both just ate one and I got to put the last one in the freezer so we have one later for a nice hot lunch!! Check out that yummy inside.
For this, I used my normal pizza dough recipe and my normal taco meat and shredded cheddar cheese. It is a great way to use any leftovers to turn them into a new meal. If I had rice, I would normally have added that too :) I hope that you try this new twist on the pizza ingredients and make yourself some taco pockets for dinner (and hope to get a few for the freezer). I promise your family will love them!!
