- Frozen pizza dough (I find that 1 lb usually makes 4 calzones)
- Contadina pizza sauce (or your fav)
- Shredded mozzarella
- Favorite toppings: my kids like italian sausage & pepperoni; you could use anything you like on pizza
Take the dough out of the fridge in the morning so it has several hours to thaw. It will grow a little, so take it out of the bag!
When you're ready: Preheat the oven to 450.
Slice the dough into 4 equal pieces. Sprinkle counter with flour and roll each piece out into a circle. Place the circle of dough onto a cookie sheet before you add anything else or you will have a mess on your hands. Trust me, this is the voice of experience.
Spoon a layer of sauce onto half of the dough circle. Leave a margin around the edge with no sauce. Add toppings - sausage, green pepper, whatever you like. Don't make it TOO full! Sprinkle mozzarella over the toppings, and close the calzone into a semicircle. Fold the edges together and use a fork to seal the dough together and create the edge.
Bake for about 15 - 20 minutes. Voila!
Serve with salad and enjoy your Friday night!
