1 lb pizza dough (store bought or homemade enough for large pizza)
1 (13 ounce) can tomato sauce
14 cup water
14 teaspoon garlic powder

14 teaspoon lemon juice

In sauce pan combine tomato sauce, water, lemon juice and spices bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. While the sauce is simmering divide your dough into three parts then roll out each one making sure not to roll them out to thin. Allow the dough to rest. When sauce is ready add desired amount to middle of the pizza dough making sure to leave room around edge for folding. Top with cheese and pepperoni. Fold over and seal edges. Preheat oil in deep fryer or large pot to 375. Add panzerotti to heated oil cooking for 5 minutes then turn over and cook for another five. Remove from oil and place on paper towel. Let cool for a couple minutes before serving (leftover sauce can be used for dipping sauce).
