"That's Hot" Pockets

Yea, that's hot. Gluten free vegan pizza pockets with nutritional value? I mean, c'mon! I think you will likeyyy....


Ingredients:
Serves 8-10

For the Dough-
For the Filling-
  • 1 cup your most-favorite tomato sauce ever! ever ever, getting back together! No we are never ever ever ever getting back together! T. Swift's new song may or may not be stuck in my head.
Directions:

  1. Pour chia seeds in a bowl with 1/4 cup warm filtered water with the honey and allow to sit for minimum 1 hour.
  2. Combine buckwheat, garbanzo/fava, quinoa, and corn meal flours in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add in the olive oil, vinegar, and the chia seed mix that has been sitting for at least an hour.
  4. Blend until soft, allow dough to settle for 15 minutes, and then form into a ball.
  5. Preheat oven to 425.
  6. Place parchment paper on a pizza pan and lightly grease.
  7. Press the dough ball into a flat rectangular shape, and split into 2 even pieces that are about 3 inches wide and 1 centimeter thick.
  8. On 1 of the dough pieces, spread tomato sauce topped with your cheese.
  9. Place the other dough piece on top of the decorated one accordingly, per the pictures below!
  10. Note: wrap your extra dough in saran wrap and freeze to make pizza later, or to make more "That's Hot" Pockets.. duh.
  11. Using your fingers, delicately close the edges of the pockets by molding the dough together.
  12. Optional: sprinkle with  basil and fresh ground black pepper.
  13. Place the pocket in the oven for 25 minutes. Place under the broiler for additional minute.
  14. Remove from oven, slice width wise into smaller pieces, and enjoy!
Split dough into flat evenly shaped rectangles.

Top one piece of dough with tomato sauce and cheese, and then cover with the second piece of dough.

Mold the edges together and sprinkle with seasoning before the oven.

  2. Looks yummy - but would need to sub out the honey, as that's not vegan ;)
