pizza dough, store bought, or homemade
pizza sauce, store bought, or homemade
mozzarella, cut into 1/2-inch (1.2cm) cubes

2Gather your ingredients.
3Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 375f (190c).
4Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface.
5Cut the dough into 2.5-inch (6cm) circles.
6Add 1/2 teaspoon of pizza sauce to the center of each dough circle.

8Chef’s Note: You could use Italian sausage, ham, or whatever you wish.
10Fold up the edges, and pinch to seal at the top (like a beggar’s purse).
11Chef’s Tip: Dip your finger in some water, and run it around the edges of the dough circle. This will help you seal it up.

13Place in the preheated oven until nice and brown, about 20 to 25 minutes.
15Serve on a large platter with some warm pizza sauce, for dipping. Enjoy.
