All the deliciousness of a pizza enclosed in tiny pockets and baked till crisp outside and the cheesy filling has melted.


1 cup grated cottage cheese (paneer)

1½ cups refined flour (maida) + for dusting

Salt to taste

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ cup yogurt

¼ cup grated mozzarella cheese

½ medium green capsicum, finely chopped

6-8 black olives, pitted and sliced

1 teaspoon red chilli flakes

1 teaspoon dried oregano

5-6 basil leaves

2 teaspoons olive oil

Butter for basting

Tomato ketchup for serving


1. Take 1 cup flour in a bowl. Add salt, baking soda and yogurt and knead into a dough. Add some water and knead into a semi-soft dough. Cover with cling wrap and set aside for 10-15 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 180̊ C.

3. To prepare stuffing, mix together cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese, capsicum, black olives, chilli flakes, dried oregano and salt in a bowl. Add roughly torn basil leaves and olive oil and mix well.

4. Divide the dough into large equal portion and roll out into semi-thick discs, dusting with some flour.

5. Cut each disc into 1½ inch squares.

6. Put some stuffing in the center of each square, fold into triangle and press the edges to seal.

7. Place the pizza pockets on a baking tray. Put the tray into the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or till golden brown, basting with some butter.
