try this: homemade calzones

My sister made these for us once and they have become one of my husband's favorites. So yummy. We love them with tons of sausage peppers and onions.


1 pkg of refrigerated pizza dough (Pillsbury or the like. Trader Joes has great dough too.)

2 cups of your favorite pizza or spaghetti sauce

2 cups of mozzerella cheese

All the toppings you love…pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers, onions, sausage… whatever you have around the fridge.

Seasonings – oregano, basil, pepper, salt, garlic powder


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum
foil and spray with PAM.  Lay out pizza dough flat and cut in half. 
Place sauce in a line, cover with cheese.  Add your toppings and any
seasoning.  Fold the two halves into a two burrito shapes, making sure
to overlap the dough.  Spread a bit of butter on the dough and sprinkle garlic powder on the dough
after folding.

Place in the oven for 15-17 minutes or until the tops of the calzones are golden brown.  Remove and enjoy!
