After the program is completed, divide dough into 10 equal pieces; shape each into a smooth ball; place five on each baking sheet. Let rise for 20 minutes while oven preheats to 500; flatten puffy balls gently into a 6-inch disk. Bake for five minutes (tops will be puffed and beginning to brown). Cut each circle in half to form two pockets. Fill with your favorite sandwich fixin's: ham, turkey, chicken salad, lettuce, sprouts, cheese and grapes.
