One of our favorite meals are homemade Calzones! I wanted to share this easy recipe with you too since I am asked for it weekly. I think my son would eat it every day if he could!
These are so easy, you probably have the ingredients already! So go ahead, make ‘em tonight, your family will rejoice!
- 1 loaf Rhode’s Frozen Bread Dough (You can also use homemade pizza dough, or even Pillsbury Pizza Dough!)
- 1 Jar of your favorite Marinara Sauce (I make my own usually, but when in a hurry we use Barilla Tomato & Basil)
- Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
- Toppings: Canadian Bacon, Pepperoni, Mushrooms, Browned Sausage, Black Olives, Green Bell Peppers, Onions, etc.
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Step 2: Follow dough thawing instructions or make your own. If you use Rhode’s Frozen dough, place frozen dough in greased bowl and cover with a towel or greased plastic wrap. Let rise 6-7 hours or until doubled.
Step 3: Divide dough into equal parts for desired amount of calzones. Roll out prepared dough onto a floured surface about 1/4 – 1/8 inch thick.
Step 4: Fill one half of the dough with toppings of your choice, add cheese and sauce.
Step 5: Fold over top layer of dough and pinch around edges to seal well.
Step 6: Place completed calzone on greased or wax paper lined cookie sheet. Tip: I label mine with a toothpick and a piece of wax paper with our initials on it so they don’t get mixed up!
Step 7: Bake approx. 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until crust is golden brown on top. Serve with salad and extra bowl of marinara sauce for dipping! Yum!
Oh, and make sure to make your husband a nice big calzone with lots of stuffing…or they’ll eat yours ;o)
