Pizzelle (stuffed pockets with Escarole and Sausage)


2 1 1b bags prepared pizza dough
(can also use pastry dough)
1 large head fresh Escarole (washed and chopped)
1 package sweet sausage (8 links)
1 package hot sausage (8 links)
3 TBS chopped fresh garlic
2 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp hot pepper flakes
1 egg
½ cup water
Dash of salt

Remove casings from Sausage, set aside. In a large sauce pan, sauté Garlic until lightly browned. Add the sausage, breaking it up in your hand as you add it. Break up the sausage into small pieces as you are cooking, until it is in reasonable chunks and browned well. Add in the water, and then the Escarole, stir to coat in the water. Let sit until the Escarole is completely wilted, and the water is evaporated, mix all together. Drain mixture and set aside to cool.

Roll out your pizza (or pastry) dough into a large sheet as if you were making pizza, and cut out circles about 6-7 inches round (I used one of Kaitlyn’s cereal bowls). Keep gathering up left over dough and re-rolling it out into to form more circles until dough is all used up. Put the sausage and escarole mixture onto a large cutting board and chop it all up well. Coat large cookie sheets with EVOO and lay out the circles, fill with 2TBS of the filling, fold over to form moon shapes, and crimp edges with a fork. In a small bowl mix the egg and a splash of water and the salt, and brush the whole Pizzelle with the egg wash. Bake at 375 for about a half an hour or until light to medium brown in color.

Mangiare il suo delizioso!
