Recipe: Homemade Calzones

7 Nov

Sometimes you have to fall off the diet wagon and jump right in!  To do that, I have a recipe for you… homemade calzones!  These are so easy to make and you can stuff them with your favorite ingredients.  Have kids?  This is a great recipe to get your kids involved in the cooking or in our case, pouring almost an entire bag of cheese in one.


Fresh Pizza Dough

Pizza Sauce

Mozzarella Cheese

Your favorite pizza toppings: pepperoni, chicken, ham and pineapple, peppers, hamburger, etc.


Preheat oven to 375

Roll pizza dough into a rectangle to fit a regular size baking pan (use flour if needed).

Place your sauce, cheese and toppings in the middle.

Cut slits 3/4 inches apart in the pizza dough on the sides of your toppings.  Make sure not to cut past the toppings.

Now the tricky part, start at the bottom and on opposite sides, crisscross the pizza dough.  Fold the ends to make sure nothing falls out (see picture to get an idea).

Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.

      So weird! Adam insisted we used to buy pizza sauce in Poland but you know men ;). I would try spaghetti sauce before tomato paste. We used to use Barilla Napoli. Try it out and let me know!
