This is an easy dinner to put together, and always a hit. You don’t have time to make pizza dough, so I recommend buying some from a pizza restaurant. I have never been turned down when I asked. Most supermarkets or specialty stores also carry it now. I would do all that I could to avoid the cheap, commercial stuff though; doesn’t taste good. Whole food market makes a good whole wheat pizza dough, that is quite good.
Take a peice of dough, and roll it out with a little flour, or use your hands. Then the fun begins. The sky is the limit as to what to put in yours. I used leftovers and made a a chicken, broccoli, and cheddar filling, but the classic way would be to take some pizza or marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and then whatever meat or vegetable you like on pizza and put it on the rolled out dough.
Then all you do is fold the other half over the filling and crimp the edges so it all bakes up nice and happy!
Preheat the oven to at least 500 degrees and place the calzones on a baking sheet. I brush mine with egg to give it a shine, but you don’t have to.
Then bake them for 10-15 minutes until they get nice and browned and enjoy. Would be fun to get everything ready for a party and let the guests fill their own for an informal get together. (and then have a godfather movie marathon)
