Pizza Pockets

Ingredients

1 can refrigerated pizza dough - (10 oz)
1/4 cup jarred pizza sauce
1 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup reduced-fat ricotta cheese
1 teaspoon crushed dried oregano

Preparation

1
Open dough can and place on a work surface. Roll out and cut two 6-inch circles. Rework scraps, roll out, and cut out another two 6-inch circles for a total of 4 circles. Discard remaining scraps.
2
Place the dough circles on the work surface. Spread each circle with 1 tablespoon pizza sauce to within 1/4-inch of the edge. Place 1/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese near the center of each circle. Top each with 1 tablespoon ricotta cheese and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon oregano.
3
Dampen the edges of each circle with a little water. Fold circles in half, enclosing the cheese filling. Crimp the edges by pressing down with the tines of a fork along the edge. Cut two small slits in the top for steam vents. Cover and refrigerate until ready to bake.
4
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
5
Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place pizza pockets on prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
6
Allow to cool for a few minutes before eating.
