Here is a quick snack that I make at least every other week & when making them today I figured I would put it up here in case anyone wanted to try it out...
Start out by making dough for a pizza crust. I didn't take pics of that because everybody knows how to make dough You can cheat & use a packet mix if you don't wanna make it from scratch or here is the recipe I use if you need one...
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp instant yeast
4 tsp olive oil
3 oz warm water
Once you make your dough divide it in half & divide each half into thirds so that you have 6 pieces of dough. Take 3 pieces & form small circles with them. Slice a fresh tomato & make your circles slightly bigger than them.
I put a nice slice of tomato, some mozz cheese & some of my dried herb mix on.
I then put 4 pepperonis & a couple more pieces of mozz on.
Make circles with your other 3 pieces of dough. Put a piece of mozz on each one.
NOW THIS IS WHERE THINGS DIFFERED FROM MY USUAL METHOD
I usually put my homemade sauce on these 3 but did not want to open a fresh jar just for these 3 so I elected to put a piece of tomato on each one instead. I then put a pepperoni, another piece of mozz & a bit of my herb mix on.
Now fold them up just like you were making a dumpling.
& into the MES 30 running hickory pellets in the AMNPS
Smoker temp 297* I've done these enough to know that they will stay in for exactly one hour. If running a different temp just do a toothpick test to tell when they are done.
Snack ball after 1 hour & awaiting its turn to be eaten.
These are a quick snack if you are in a rush for something smoked - they really are pretty good
Note : The mini pizza snacks were good as usual but this was the 1st time I used tomato in place of my sauce for the balls & they ended up being too dry. Either more tomato was needed or just skip that & use sauce instead like I normally do - probably the latter...
Anyway... There you go...
