I come from Omaha and have finally started making Runzas for my family and they fight over the last one in the fridge! This recipe is simple, but accurate. I make the following modifications, though, to make them a little more healthy. I add cabbage that has some shredded carrots in it, add a whole shredded zucchini while cooking so my kids get more vegetables. I also add garlic for flavor and just a little bit of shredded cheddar and monterey jack cheese. I use the pizza dough from the deli (Pillsbury?) and roll it out thin, then cut it into little rectangles. The Runzas bake up beautifully (I put my oven at 425 like a pizza), and they are done in about 10 minutes. The size is just right for snacking..smaller than the original Runzas, but just as good! The pizza dough works great, and no need to rise. To save time for later, I make the filling ahead of time and freeze it, so that it's ready whenever we want a treat. Runzas on demand!!!! Woooo Hooooo!!!!
