Calzones are one of my favorite meals and are pretty easy to make:
First thing that needs to be done is to thaw the frozen bread dough for a couple of hours. Lightly coat the outside of the bread loaves with olive oil then lightly drape cling wrap over top, then place on baking sheet. Set loaves aside to raise. I let mine raise in the oven (away from my curious cats!). If you are crunched for time, a secret to letting the dough thaw quickly is to put them in the oven at 200′ for about 45 minutes.
While the dough is thawing/raising, start to prepare your calzone ingredients.
Here we have some baby portabellas sauteing with fresh garlic in olive oil.
I also sauteed some onions.
Once dough has thawed, cut each loaf in half. On a clean countertop, roll out the dough using rolling pin into a circular or rectangular shape. Spread a very thin amount of sauce over half, leaving about 1/2″ of dough around the edges.
Top sauce with favorite pizza toppings. This one is a Canadian Bacon/Pineapple. I also love pepperoni with sausage, garlic, onion, mushroom, peppers.
Cover the ingredients with a generous amount of mozzarella and fresh parmesan.
Fold Dough over the Ingredients, roll and pinch ends together to seal tightly. Season dough with Italian seasonings and parmesan cheese to make it extra delicious.
Bake Calzones at 400′ for 20 Minutes or until Golden Brown
Serve with a side of pizza sauce for dipping and Enjoy!
