Homade Calzones

Lauren Bisping, Writer

If you want a delicious easy meal a calzone is perfect for you to make. A calzone is like a pizza but you put the cheese and pepperoni and all of the other toppings you may want in the middle of the pizza dough then you fold it over and cook it and instead of putting the pizza sauce on the inside you dip the calzone into the pizza sauce once you are ready to eat it. Now if you are gonna make one of these you will need

  • Pilsberry Pizza dough
  • Pizza sauce
  • Cheese ( Other toppings you may want we are using, yellow onion, green bell pepper, pepperoni, and cheese.)

Once you have all of the ingredients you need to

    • Preheat oven to 425°F and line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.
    • Divide pizza dough into 4 equal parts and roll each dough ball into a 1/4 inch thick circle.
    • On half of each dough circle, add equal parts sauce, yellow onion, green bell pepper, and sliced pepperoni. Make sure to leave a little room around the edges so you can crimp the calzone shut.
  • Sprinkle the toppings with equal parts shredded cheese. Then fold the other half of the dough over the toppings and crimp the edges.
  • Cut 2-3 air vents into the top of the calzone and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Brush with olive oil and bake for about 15 minutes or until the dough is fully cooked and the calzone is golden brown.
  • Serve with warmed pizza sauce for dipping.

Calzones are a must-try thing for your life they are so good and crispy and just overall great. This is a five-star recipe that I found online. My rating for this is 4.5 stars because they are so insanely good the only thing is they were a little dry but that is what the pizza sauce you dip them in is for. Overall this is really good and you should definitely try it.
