In the mood for some delicious junk food but don't want to spend tons of time in the kitchen? We've got the recipe for you! This pizza pocket recipe will fill that greasy junk food craving.
Did you used to eat pizza hot pockets back in the day? It’s funny I never used to really seek them out back in my meat eating days but now that I can’t eat them I want them even more! Tofurky makes a great one but being gluten-free I’m stuck making my own. When you’re in the mood for some greasy junk food this is the perfect recipe! I used tortillas for a quick and easy way to make these without the hassle of making the pizza dough. Because when you're in the mood for junk food who has time?
Watch the YouTube video to learn how to make this amazing recipe:
- Tortillas (I used rice for gluten-free)
- 1 cup pasta sauce
- 1 cup frozen spinach
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- 1 cup vegan cheese
- 1 cup vegan meat/sausage
- Oil for frying
- I used beyond meat for gluten free option but you can use vegan pepperoni slices instead. You don’t need a whole cup just lay on top like a pizza to your liking
In a small pan precook all the ingredients
Add oil to small pan on medium heat
Add minced garlic and add to pan with frozen spinach, once cooked set aside
If using vegan meat/sausage add to the same small pan and cook with oil, once cooked set aside
Heat up tortilla. If using a wheat tortilla add to large pan on low-medium heat, flip until warm and pliable. If using rice tortilla add water to large pan and add steam rack. Steam tortilla until warm and pliable
Remove tortilla from pan onto a flat surface
Spread sauce, sprinkle cheese, add sauteed spinach and your vegan meat choice
I added additional sauce and cheese on top but not necessary
Wrap like a burrito, fold in both sides and roll up tucking in the stuffing and closing tight
Add oil to large pan on medium heat
Add pizza pocket with the fold on the bottom of the pan and fry. If using rice tortilla cover the pan to allow it to steam some more while it cooks
Flip and cook until brown on both sides. If using rice tortillas cook uncovered on the second side
Serve hot and enjoy!
