Supremely Good Pizza Hand Pies

I tried what I thought would be similar to those Hot Pockets you buy from the store–Supreme Pizza Hand Pies. It turns out they quite not like Hot Pockets. This recipe also comes from the Tastefully Simple 30-day meal kit.

One wintry Saturday resulted in the following:

  • I substituted the ground Italian turkey sausage or pork sausage with ground beef or hamburger. This was okay but bulked up the hand pies, which in my opinion are a daintier version of Hot Pockets.
  • I found out working with puffed pasty sheets can be tricky once they thaw out.
  • Because of the hamburger bulk and letting the pasty sheets thaw out too much, the end result wasn’t as successful as I would have liked it to be. However, the filling was very tasty and supremely good.

What would I do next time? I may attempt to try this again with the hamburger but forego the puffed pastry sheets. Instead I would try this recipe as a wrap in a warmed up soft burrito or taco shell. This would be a lot easier to handle and less meticulous to work with during prep. This would cut down on the time to both make it and bake it, reducing time by an estimated 15 to 18 minutes.
