1. Make the pizza dough.....

a. Combine the bread flour, sugar, yeast and kosher salt in a mixer and combine.

b. While the mixer is running, add the water and 2 tablespoons of the oil. Beat until the dough forms into a ball.

* If the dough is sticky, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a solid ball.

2. Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead into a smooth, firm ball.

3. In a greased bowl place dough, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in a warm area to let it double in size, about 40 minutes.

4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

5. Set out and chop/shred the ingredients you want to put in your hot pocket.

6. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into 3 inch balls.

7. Sprinkle a cookie sheet with cornmeal or non stick spray.

Step 2: Stuffing the Dough

So, very serious question here... do you have to let the lava pockets set for 2 minutes so you do not die like the real ones?
