Pizza Pops


Growing up in Canada you probably came home from school and popped a couple Pizza Pops in the microwave and were rewarded with molten cheese and frozen chunks of processed meat. Despite their unpredictable internal temperature there was always a huge box of these buried in the back of the freezer waiting to fill you up until an adult could come make you a proper meal.
We were making pizza for guests this weekend and they had to cancel last minute so we had extra dough and ingredients. I figured I could just deep fry a calzone and it would be a Pizza Pop. It turns out I was right but I didn't plan for how much these would expand in the fryer. My pizza pops ended up being the size of large potatoes. They had a great crust on the outside and the perfect gooey middle.


 I filled mine with pizza sauce, hot Italian sausage, chopped pepperoni, pizza mozarella, and sliced garlic stuffed olives.


 I just folded it in half and rolled over the edges. You can see that I had to bandage it up a bit because my sausage was too big and was poking out.


I fried it at 375 degrees for 6 minutes and it turned out perfect. It is the size of a piece of fire wood but full of pizza goodness.
