Pizza Pockets

To say unpleasant things, when we have nice ones, is like eating unripe fruit, ignoring sweet ripe fruits. – Thirukkural.

Pizza pockets are more like baked samosas. Pizza dough used for the outer covering and inner filing is made with potato masala.


  • APF – 1 and ½ cup
  • Wheat flour – 1 and ½ cup
  • Rapid rising yeast – 2 tsp
  • Honey or sugar – 1 tsp
  • Water – 1 cup
  • Oil – 2 tsp
  • Potato peas masala – ½ cup, check potato peas masala recipe here

  1. In a luke warm water add yeast, sugar and wait for 10 minutes or until yeast forms a frothy layer.
  2. In a mixing bowl add APF, wheat flour, yeast mixture, salt and oil.  Add yeast mixture little by little and make dough.
  3. Cover the dough with wet cloth and let it rest for 1 hour in a warm place.
  4. After one hour dough must have doubled in size, now punch dough and release air from the dough.
  5. Next preheat the oven at 350 degree F.
  6. Using a rolling pin, roll out thin squares. Place potato masala in the center of a square and place another square and seal the edges with little water.
  7. Bake pizza pockets for 15 – 20 minutes.
  8. Serve it hot with sweet chutney or ketchup.
Note: Potato masala filing can also be replaced with sweet filing such as dry fruits, coconut and honey mixture.
