Easy Weeknight Calzones

These were easy-peezy. And delicious. And who doesn't love a calzone? 

The key to this is a store bought crust, I used a pillsbury crust that I got for $2 a piece. Cheap and easy!You could put literally whatever filling you'd like in your calzone, we used cheese & pepperoni for these. I'm thinking spinach, chicken, mushrooms, garlic, peppers, whatever you like on your pizza would be delicious in these!

Ingredients: (Makes 4 calzones)
2 pre-made pizza crusts
2 cups mozzarella cheese
2 cups mini pepperoni (or whatever topping you prefer)
1 cup pizza sauce 


Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Open one of the pizza crust cans and roll out the dough, divide it into two even portions. Roll the portions of dough into two balls of dough.

Step 2: Take the first ball and roll it into a circle.

Step 3: Put your choice of toppings on top of the dough.
Step 4: Fold the dough over the toppings, to make a half-moon shape. I used a fork to close the dough.
Step 5: Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray. Put filled calzones on the sheet. Spray the calzones with non-stick spray (to help them get golden brown).
Step 6: Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Serve with pizza sauce on the side. Enjoy!
