  • Incredible!

    Oh how amazingly delicious! Left out mushrooms and cabbage (doubled peppers and onions) this time. The dough was perfectly light and flavorful, crisped well in the oven. Next time might try some artichoke -- so many options. This takes about two hours, but the end result is WORTH IT! - 10/25/08

    Fantastic! I ran out of filling about 2/3 of the way through, so make 1.5 times the filling. What a great meal! Served with pasta sauce. Put 1/2 in the fridge and froze the rest. Took me 4 hours total to make a double batch, but totally worth it! I have lunch for a month now. - 8/7/08

  • Loved the dough, loved the flavor, love the convenience of having ready made lunch. So few calories, fat and sodium for such a great meal. Because of comments I increased quantity of some of the vegetables and added a couple more and came up with 12, but the counts are still great! - 3/6/12

  • The crust was yummy. I added parsley, oregano, black pepper to the filling and left out spinach (hubby doesn't like it). I put some pepperoni in hubby. Put artichokes and spinach in my mine. I used only 1/4 cup of filling and was able to make 11 calzones. Extras will be frozen for lunches. - 2/21/11

  • Excellent recipe! For those of you wanting to put sauce inside, then it wouldn't be a calzone anymore, it would be stromboli. - 1/25/11

  • Has anyone put tomato sauce inside the calzone? It would taste good but would it make the whole thing too soggy?

  • When making my recipe for calzone, to save time and energy, I usually make 1 large calzone on a baking sheet and cut into individual servings. With 5 kids, that's just easier for me. We already had calzones on the menu for this week, so if nothing else, I'm going to make the dough this way! - 1/17/11
