Football Pizza Pockets

Recipe from:Picture the Recipe  |
• 1 Pack pie crust or pizza crust
• Pizza sauce
• Pepperoni
• Mozzarella Cheese
• 1 Egg (beaten with a tbsp of cold water)

Roll out your pie crust or pizza dough (I prefer the flakiness of pie crust rather than pizza dough for this recipe). Using a round larger cookie cutter, cut round circles out of the pastry. Then cut them into football shapes. Once you have one, it’s easy to use it as a template and cut the rest out. Re-roll the scraps and cut out as many football shapes as you can.
On a football cutout, place a couple pepperoni slices, a piece of mozzarella and a little pizza sauce.
Brush a little of the egg wash around the edges and place another football shaped cutout over the stuffing and seal it by pressing down on the edges.
Using a fork, crimp the edges around the pizza pocket and make slits in the top to resemble
football laces.
Brush the tops of the pizza pockets with the egg wash and place them on a baking sheet. Bake at 425°F for about 10-12 minutes.

Dip each chicken ball first into the flour, then the egg and ending with the Corn Flakes. Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm with ranch or blue cheese dressing.

If freezing place the dipped and uncooked chicken balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze for 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a freezer bag and store in the freezer until ready.
