Last month at Dream Dinners, Calzone's were on the menu. I kept wanting to try one, so the other day I made my own. There are so many options for toppings I want to make more with other ingredients. This would be a fun dinner for a party!
Pizza Dough: My Homemade recipe is on the January 27th blog post
Toppings: whatever you want here is what I used
Diced Chicken, mushrooms, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, Roasted Garlic, Parmesan Cheese
Optional: marinara sauce
Roll out pizza dough into a circle (or close to one..)
Place the dough into a baking pan. Half on the bottom and the other half over the the back side.
Spread about 1/4 cup of ricotta cheese on the bottom half of the dough.
Layer your toppings.
Pull the other side of the dough over the bottom side and press the edges together. Roll the edges up slightly the press down again to really seal the crust down.
Use a fork to poke a few holes in the dough to allow the steam to escape.
Brush some olive on the top of the dough.
Bake on 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes (check to see how it is cooking)
Let cool then slice and serve with a cup of marinara sauce.
