This calzone recipe is really just pizza dough folded over and stuffed with a variety of tasty ingredients.
Originating in Naples, this word literally translates as "trouser leg" - named as such because it resembles the puffy pant legs that Neopolitan men used to wear a very long time ago.
Outerwear never tasted so good!
Think of it as a pizza sandwich - a variation your family is sure to love.
This recipe serves 4, but you might want a double batch, just in case.
Preheat the oven to 475ºF. Punch the dough down and kneed it lightly. Divide it into 4 balls.
Using a rolling pin dusted with flour, roll each abll into a flat circle about 1/4 inch thick.
In a medium bowl, combine all of the filling ingredients and mix. Season with salt and pepper.
Spoon the filling onto one half of each of the circles (leaving a 1 inch border along the edge).
Fold the dough over the filling and pinch the edges together with your fingers to form a seal.
Put the calzoni on a sprayed or oiled baking sheet or pan. Brush the top with olive oil and season (if you like) with a dusting of garlic powder. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the calzoni are puffy. Enjoy!
