EZ calzones

Submitted by: RAJAHKITTY

Introduction

BIG family hit! BIG family hit!
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 tube refrigerated pizza dough
    2 cups mozzarella cheese
    approx. 32 turkey pepperoni slices

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350.

Roll the pizza dough out and make it a flat rectangle. Cut it in half the long direction. Then cut it in half the short direction. Then cut each of those halves in half again the short direction. You should have 8 rectangles left.

On each rectangle, put approximately 4 of the turkey pepperonis & 1/4 cup of cheese. (You can also add any other pizza toppings you like. I usually add diced peppers) Pull one side over the top and seal by using a fork all the way around each calzone.

Place them on a cookie sheet & bake for 15 - 20 minutes (depending on your oven.)

This makes 8 calzones. I usually serve with pizza sauce to dip in.

    I also used a 1/2 mozz and 1/2 ricotta mix, more like the real thing. Everyone loved it, even with the turkey pepperoni. We will have this again, for sure - 6/3/09

  • These were unbelievably amazing! The only reason I gave them 4 stars instead of 5 is that I have no IDEA who could eat just one (unless you bulked up on dry salad & water beforehand) & they turn into a not-so-healthy dinner when you eat multiple. - 6/13/09

    hmmm...isn't it dry. Nobody has said anything about it being dry- our family really likes sauces- hence me being on this site.

    Reply from RAJAHKITTY (6/2/09)
    My son doesn't like sauces, so that's why I usually put some pizza sauce out for those of us who do like it to dip in. A 1/4 cup of sauce (more than enough) adds 30 calories.
