Step 4 Add sauce and cheese
Lastly, add pizza sauce and grated cheese. Saute for a minute and switch off the flame. Your filling mixture is ready.
Step 5 Make bread pockets
Take a bread slice and trim the edges. Use a rolling pin to flatten the bread. Add 1-2 tbsp filling to the bread and spread it a bit. Apply a few drops of water on all the sides of the bread and fold the bread in half. Press down on all sides to seal the edges. Applying water helps in sealing the pocket properly. Repeat this step to make more such pockets with the remaining bread slices and filling.
