:blushing: I'd forgotten about these pics until I saw Jim's Pie for Dinner thread. It reminded me of these pies.

All told, we made 3 pizzas. We had dough for a 4th, but I decided to play a bit, with mixed success.

First up, a nice pepperoni pizza. The pepperoni is under the extra cheese.

Next up, the kids' new favorite, Canadian bacon and pineapple.

How about a 1/2 cheese, 1/2 C-bacon/pineapple/jalapeno? The peppers really make a big difference in the flavor.

Next up was my fun. We took the last bit of dough, rolled it out, and cut it into 4 wedges. From there, I filled them with sauce, cheese, pepperoni, C-bacon, and pineapple.

After folding and sealing the edges, I brushed the tops with a mix of butter and garlic salt. (Next time, I'll use plain garlic butter. These were too salty for our tastes.)

A small slit in the top, and we're done. Bring on the heat!

I'd offer y'all a slice, but a slice is all that was left.

The dough was homemade. Marie went to a class on pizza and bought some 00 pizza flour. It makes a difference, I can tell you.

I took a pic of her recipe sheet from the class. It's a thumbnail as the pic is loaded full-size on Imageshack.

The pockets were fun, but *very* labor-intensive. Not to mention trying to load them onto the pizza screen without tearing them apart. But they were delicious, and dipping them into extra sauce was fun. Big :thumbs up: from the kids.

Sometimes I do it on the grill and sometimes I do It in the oven.:shrug: I guess it depends on If I need to get in touch with the little Pyromaniac that live in my head. But I will Say that nothing compares to the flavor of a Pizza cooked over wood coals. It is magical.:wings:

We do that in the Sandman household. The MIL does the homemade dough, but the Boboli works great for us for a quick meal.

Speaking of the kids, we were discussing dinner one night. I said, "I can make spaghetti, pizza, ..." The rest was drowned out by a loud kid chorus of "SPAGHETTI PIZZA!" Haven't done it, yet, but I promis pics when I do. :msn-wink:

Sounds like great fun!It is always so rewarding to see their little faces light up.I promised my son I would break out the smokey Joe and let him grill something.
