Asia meets Italy: Pizza Dumplings!

 Most of the time when I try making a new recipe off the cuff, it needs a lot of tweaking. Recipes normally evolve for me slowly over time. Not the case with pizza dumplings. They were a hit right away. This is not the most "from scratch" recipe but it tasted good so I'm posting it anyway.

Ingredients
Dumpling wrappers
Vegan pepperoni
Daiya Mozzarella 'cheese'
Pizza Sauce

Directions
1. Lay out a dumpling wrapper. Add a teaspoon of pizza sauce, a slice of pepperoni and a sprinkle of 'cheese'.
2. Wet the rim of the dumpling with a little water.
3. Fold and squish the outer edges together to form a half circle as shown below.
4. When you have a good sized batch of dumplings ready, boil some water then add your dumplings. They will float to the top when ready.
5. Lay out the finished dumplings to dry a little while you heat a frying pan then fry dumplings in a bit of oil. I drained the finished dumplings on some paper towel. Enjoy :)
