There’s only one thing I don’t like about these grilled pizza pockets: they’re too difficult to photograph! The problem is, they don’t look all that special on the outside, but on the inside they’re full of melty, gooey, stretchy deliciousness.
This was my first time grilling pizza, but it worked out really well, and overall, I have to say it’s a great way to cook pizza dough. I simply turned my heat up all the way, let the grill get as hot as possible, and then tossed the pockets on it for a few minutes. Bada bing, bada boom.
This was yet another recipe that I tried out on my parents. They’re diehard meat and cheese eaters, especially my dad. So what did they think of these vegan pizza pockets? Well, my dad ate four in a row! He actually said it’s the best thing I’ve made him. I’m still not sure if he realized they were vegan. My mom really liked them too, but she’s a much less fussy eater than my dad and easier to please.
Ironically, I think what made my dad like these so much was the vegan cheese that I made from raw cashews and tapioca starch. It turned out so realistic! When it’s inside the pockets with all the other ingredients, it’s practically impossible to tell it’s not dairy cheese. Maybe if you compared the two side-by-side, it would be more obvious, but again, my dad ate four pockets and didn’t say one word about the cheese; he just said, “that was delicious!” right after he finished his last bite. I hope you give this recipe a try, and maybe see if you can fool some of your friends and family, too!
Special thanks to Gourmet Nuts and Dried Fruit for providing the cashews for this recipe!
