Take the dough out of the fridge. Cut the dough in half.

Place the dough back in the fridge and repeat the steps with the other dough. Place the dough back in the fridge for 15 minutes.
Take the dough out of the fridge, roll into a ⅛ inch thick. Cut the dough to desired size. Be sure to work fast as you want the dough to remain cold.
Take the cut out dough and fold it in half then open the dough again. The crisp in the middle will be your guide as to where the meat should be.
