Directions

Preheat oven to 450*F.
Combine blue cheese and Greek yogurt in a small bowl and mix well. Stir in 1 Tbsp sliced green onion. Set aside.
Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Season chicken with salt and pepper, add to heated pan, and cook until done, about 4 minutes per side. Remove chicken from pan and set aside to cool. Once cool enough to handle, cut chicken into bite-sized pieces. Reduce stove heat to low.
Melt butter in the skillet and stir in Worcestershire, hot sauce, and tomato sauce. Stir to combine and remove from heat. Add the cooked chicken to the buffalo sauce, and stir to coat evenly.
Divide pizza dough into four equal portions. Roll each out into a circle on a lightly floured surface.
Working with one dough circle at a time, spoon 1/4 of the chicken onto one half of the circle. Top with 1/4 cup shredded cheddar and 1 tablespoon sliced green onion. Drape other half of the dough circle up and over the filling, and pinch edges together to seal the dough.
Repeat step 7 with remaining three dough circles. Transfer calzones to a baking sheet. Using the tines of a fork, pierce the top of each calzone a few times to let steam out while cooking.
Place calzones into the oven, and cook for 10-12 minutes. Let calzones sit at room temperature for a few minutes. Serve with the blue cheese-yogurt dip.
