Pizza Calzones...

I had been wanting to make these for a pepperoni (not enough for pizzas) and family movie night made them a must.  For the first time in a while, I got no 'thumbs down' for these either! (I allow them to rate new recipes- but even if its a thumbs down, they still gotta eat it anyways, I just know not to make it again ;)

I used Tammy's Calzone Dough recipe (doubled it) and it was really good, and easy, almost like Marilyn's Bread that I make for "breakfast bread".   In fact, that recipe would work for these as well.

I made them like Tammy, but using 'pizza' fillings.

In each calzone I layered, 2  to 3 tablespoons of cheese, 2 tablespoons of thick sauce, 4 pepperoni, and another 1 to 2 tablespoons of cheese...then a dash of parmesan.

I also lightly sprayed the tops and sprinkle lightly with parmesan.

I baked them per instructions @ 375 for 25 to 30 minutes. Perfect!

Hi, I used just the dough recipe to make a pizza with. I used bread flour instead of wheat flour. This was by far, the BEST pizza dough I've ever made!! It was nice and soft, not tough and chewy. Thank you for sharing.

I hope to do some up after this weekend thing is up!
