Dough:
1/4 cup warm water (100º to 110ºF)
1 envelope Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons shortening
2 tablespoons molasses
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 to 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Filling:
1 tablespoon Mazola® Pure Olive Oil
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced zucchini
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Italian Herb Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/4 cup sliced pepperoni, quartered


Directions

Combine yeast and water in a large mixer bowl, let stand for 5 minutes.  Heat milk, shortening and molasses until warm (100° to 110°F).  Add to yeast mixture with salt, egg and whole wheat flour.  Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes or until smooth.  Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form soft dough.  Knead on a lightly floured surface for 8 to 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat top.  Cover dough and let rise for 1 hour, or until doubled.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add onions, zucchini, mushrooms, red bell pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic salt and Worcestershire sauce, and cook for 5 minutes until vegetables are softened.  Remove from heat and spread on a baking sheet to cool.  Stir in cheese and pepperoni.
Punch dough down.  Divide into 6 equal pieces.  Roll each piece into a 8 x 6-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface, top with about 1/2 cup filling and fold in half.  Seal all edges.  Place on a greased baking sheet. 

Bake in preheated 400°F oven for 15 to 20 minutes.  Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Make ahead tip (cook once and eat twice!):  Double recipe to make 12 pocket sandwiches.  Let half the sandwiches rise and bake as above.  (These are the ones to serve now).  Place remaining half of sandwiches on a greased baking sheet and freeze.  When sandwiches are frozen, wrap entire pan in plastic wrap or foil, and return to freezer.  Freeze up to 1 month.  When ready to serve, remove pan from freezer and let thaw at room temperature for 2 to 3 hours, or overnight in the refrigerator.  Bake as above.
