This dough recipe is from the cookbook under "Oven-Baked Thick Crusted Pizza **V**
1⁄2 C lukewarm water
2 T yeast
3 T sugar
Mix above ingredients and set aside for about 5 minutes.
1/3 C oil
2 C lukewarm water
5-8 C sifted whole wheat flour
1 T dough enhancer (optional, available at health food stores)
1 T gluten (optional, available at health food stores)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix salt, oil, 3 C of flour, dough enhancer, gluten and water together. Add yeast mixture. Add whole wheat flour 1⁄2 C at a time until dough is just not sticky, DON'T add too much flour. Knead dough for about 8-10 minutes, making sure that dough is pliable, and is not sticky. Place dough in large, greased bowl and let rise for about an hour, punching down and kneading briefly every 10 minutes. Spray cookie sheets or baking stones.
Specific Directions for making pillows:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Divide pizza dough into small sections (a little smaller than fist-sized). Using a rolling pin, roll out into small circles. Put cheese, pepperonis, sausage, veggies or whatever topping you enjoy in the middle of the dough circle. Collect all outer parts of dough and seal into a ball with NONE of the toppings poking out anywhere. Roll pizza "pillows" in melted butter and then in Parmesan cheese. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. Top with Marinara sauce and enjoy!
To reheat: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put frozen pizza pillows on a cookie sheet and reheat for 25-30 minutes or until very warm.
P.S. Veggie Pizza Pockets are really good with ranch dressing and extra parmesan cheese.
