Pizza Wontons

Pizza Wontons are a mix of two cultures.  Super easy to make especially if you cut up string cheese and use mini pepperoni like I did.  I did not use a premade pizza sauce for dipping as a shortcut because my recipe is a quick one, especially since I had some frozen from the last batch that I made.  I'll post the recipe again.

Pizza Wontons

25 wonton wrappers
5 string cheese 
mini pepperoni

Cut each piece of string cheese into 5 equal pieces.  Place one piece and 3 mini pepperoni in the center of the wonton wrapper.  Dip your finger in water (once for each of the 4 sides) and wet the edge of the wrapper.  Gently fold over into a triangle shape and press down on the edges.  Place on a greased baking sheet.  When all 35 are made, spray with cooking oil and bake for 10 minutes at 325°.  Serve warm.

Pizza sauce

1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 medium onion finely chopped
1 tbsp extra light virgin olive oil
1 6 oz tomato paste
1 15 oz tomatoes peeled, seeded and diced
4 oz water
1 tbsp Italian seasonings ~ crush between your hands and sprinkle into the sauce
1 tbsp honey
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
salt to taste

Heat olive oil in sauce pan and add in garlic and onion and cook until tender.  Add in tomato paste and water.  Add in tomatoes and spices.  You can also mix in 1/4 cup of your favorite red wine.  Let cook for about a half hour for all the spices to blend into the sauce.
