Gluten Free Pizza Pockets

allergy friendly hot pockets

There are times when I feel like there are foods I know my kids would love that they just can't have. It makes me sad and this foodie mamma pretty much has to do something about it. 

My son has only had pizza a handful of times in his short, little life. He does however of course love it. Like really love it. I can't say I blame him, but isn't that funny it doesn't take much to totally fall in love. So, pizza it is my little toddler!

This recipe is such a fun one to have your children get involved in with you. Let them measure, pour, and get their hands all dirty. My son absolutely loves getting his hands all stuck in the dough and messy. 

This recipe is: gluten free, dairy free, and egg free.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose gluten free flour, plus 1/4 cup for dusting

  • 1/3 cup almond milk

  • 2 T olive oil

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • Favorite pizza toppings

How to Make it:

  1. Preheat oven to 425.

  2. Put all ingredients in a bowl under a stand mixer with the dough attachment. Combine until dough can be easily handled.

  3. Fold dough onto a flour covered surface. Kneed until well combined. Use extra flour to dust as needed.

  4. Roll out dough. It is going to be sticky, because it is gluten free. Use flour on the rolling pin and surface under the dough. If you continue to have problems roll out between two pieces of parchment paper.

  5. Use a large round cookie cutter to make pocket shapes.

  6. Put toppings on one side of the circle and fold over. Use a fork to seal the seems. Use extra dough for any holes that might be created.

  7. Put into the oven and cook for 15 minutes.

Notes:

  • Just buy a small can of tomato sauce to save money on buying a large pizza sauce jar.

  • When buying pepperoni look for nitrate free, my grocery store carries Applegate.

  • If you don't have a large circle cookie cutter no big deal. Divide dough into three balls. Roll out in a circle.

  • If you want it to be completely dairy free use whatever cheese you like, or don't include any cheese at all.
