Calzones

So last night I decided to put the free Pillsbury pizza crust in a can to good use. I made calzones. They were super easy and I could cater them to each of our tastes. C’s had pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms and green pepper in it, while mine had green pepper, artichokes, mushrooms and garlic.

Calzones

1 can of refrigerated Pillsbury pizza dough, cut into two squares
1 can of crushed tomatoes
½ teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon basil
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese

Fillings:
Sausage, pepperoni, ham, artichokes, onions, mushrooms, green peppers, garlic, spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, sun dried tomatoes, jalapeno, olives, or anything else you would like on a pizza

Preheat oven to 400. In a small pan, simmer crushed tomatoes, oregano, basil and crushed red pepper for 5 to 10 minutes to thicken the sauce. Lay out the pizza crust on a large baking sheet. Mince up whatever fillings you want and mound them in one corner of the square crust. Pour two tablespoons of sauce over each pile of fillings, then top each with half of the shredded cheese. Fold over the pizza crust and roll to seal. Sprinkle half of the parmesan cheese over each calzone. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, top with remaining sauce.
