Sloppy Joe Pockets - not a horror movie


The title may sound strange, after I took photos my husband said they looked like scenes from a horror movie. Tomatoes to him look like blood. I thought they looked delicious. This recipe is from RR's magazine and it's part of the "no recipe zone." She posts pictures with text about a recipe and then you make it. You can get the recipe from her site. See the step by steps.

Sloppy Joe Pockets - not a horror movie

Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1/2 onion, coarsely chopped (I used a whole onion)
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey (I used a pound)
1 cup tomato sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 pound pizza dough (I used the pizza dough in a can)
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (2 cups)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400°.

In a large, heavy skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the bell pepper, onion and a pinch of salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the turkey and cook over medium-high heat, breaking up the meat, until cooked through and crumbly, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the pizza sauce and Worcestershire sauce, season to taste with salt and pepper and let cool.


Lightly grease a baking sheet. Divide the dough into quarters and, working with 1 piece at a time, roll out and stretch into an 8-inch round. Place the rounds on the baking sheet, with about a third of each round hanging over the edges of the pan.

Mound the turkey mixture onto each round, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top each with the cheese and then fold the dough over the filling; crimp the edges together to seal. Cut a small vent in the top of each pocket for ventilation.

Bake until puffed and golden, 15 to 20 minutes.

I'll have to make it with either beef or pork because ground turkey doesn't exist over here. :shrug:

I was afraid of the turkey (I thought ground beef would be better)... but it actually makes it quite tasty. My husband LOVES these. :D
