Not to be used as a flotation device

You grill the filling separately, let it cool a bit, then roll a few ounces of dough into a thin, rough oval, pile filling in the middle, wrap up the sides and pinch the ends, and bake at 500° F for eight minutes. The baked dough is firm enough that you can pick up the whole thing in your hand, like so:
