Calzones!

Calzones are great because they are so easy to make and you can throw whatever you want in them! After making these the first time (thanks to inspiration from Jessica found here), we made them again for our big Midwest road trip. They were pretty good even cold out of a cooler.

Calzones
pizza dough – I’ve only used the canned kind and got 4 fairly large or 6 smaller calzones out of 1 can. I want to try to use some homemade dough sometime…
toppings of your choice

Varieties we have tried and LOVED:
Besto-Pesto – Inspiration for this guy came from the Sunset Grille‘s Besto-Pesto sandwich
Cooked chicken
Lots of pesto
Sauteed Mushrooms
Provolone cheese

Pulled Chicken w/ Bacon and Cheddar
Pulled chicken – I cooked chicken breasts in BBQ sauce for about 3 hours on Low then shredded the chicken
Bacon
Cheddar Cheese

Preheat oven according to directions on dough.

Roll the pizza dough out and cut into however many calzones you want to make (kitchen scissors work great for this!). Roll dough out.

Put some foil on a cookie sheet and spray with PAM or olive oil.

Place dough pieces on foil and spoon some topping onto 1/2 of each piece of dough.

Fold the dough over and be sure to seal it shut.

Bake according to directions on dough.

    I’m so glad that you liked these! We really did, too. That’s good to know that cooking on low for 10 hours worked well… I was worried they’d dry out.

    yay!

    We also used bacon which I think helped with the moisture. They were SO GOOD. We might be making them again this weekend!

    Funny – my mom ate baked beans cold, too! On buttered bread. She was born in 35, maybe it’s a generational thing?

    I made these when I saw them in your archives. I am a big fan of the Year of Crockpotting, but had somehow missed this one. YUM! It was sooooo good!
