Inside Out Pizza Triangles Recipe

pizza trianglesSo the other night we were hungry and I hadn’t decided what to make for dinner. I hadn’t made my menu plan for the week yet, but I did after making dinner that night.  My daughter wanted me to make pizza so I went to the cupboard to see if I had enough yeast. I didn’t buy the jar last time and got the three little packets. I need 1 tablespoon of yeast to make pizza dough but had less than a packet left. So, I looked in the fridge and found pie crusts.

I immediately hopped online and looked up pie crust pizza. I found a few different recipes and then adapted one using the ingredients I had. Here’s what I used:

15 oz. box of pie crust (2 pie crust rounds)

1 cup of cheese – the original recipe called for 1 cup of mozzarella which I thought I had. It turned out I had 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella and then a chunk of mozzarella that I ended up tossing out. So, I improvised and added 1/3 parmesan and 1/3 cup sharp cheddar.

16 oz. tomato sauce ( I only used 12 oz at first for the filling then added the last 4 oz to the leftover filling for the dipping sauce.)

Oregano and Basil to taste – probably about a 1/2 teaspoon or so of each.

Pepperoni slices – 1/2 cup

Preparation:

1. Pre-heat oven to 450° F

2. Cut each pie crust into 4 wedges so you have a total of 8 pieces.

3. Cut up the pepperoni in little pieces and mix it in with the sauce, cheeses, and herbs.

4. place 1 heaping tablespoon of the filling on each wedge of pie crust.

5. Fold the crust over to make a triangle shape like a regular slice of pizza.

6. Seal the edges together with a fork or press the edges down with your finger. I tried both ways and liked the ones that I just pressed together with my fingers.

7. Place the filled triangles on a cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

8. While the pizza triangle are baking take the remaining filling mixture and pour in the rest of the tomato sauce and heat thoroughly. This step didn’t really happen intentionally. I had a lot of left over filling and nothing to do with it. So, that’s where I came up with idea to use it as a dipping sauce.

My daughter loved the dipping sauce so much that she wanted to eat it with a spoon. We dubbed it Pizza Soup.

Try these out and let me know what you think about them. They were really easy to make and we enjoyed them.
