My family LOVES pizza. We eat it once a week. Since we do eat it on a weekly basis, I am always looking for new ways to serve it up. I mean, even though we love it, we don’t like to eat the exact same pizza EVERY WEEK. These fast and easy calzones are a perfect way to give your pizza night new life.
The dough for this comes together in no time and is ready to go right after you make it. The filling is also simple and you can change it as you would like. When I made the photo below I added some fresh basil to it because I had it on hand. You can do that or use some dried spices just to give the filling added flavor.
You can also use veggies in place of part or all of the meat in these fast and easy calzones. However, if you are using fresh veggies, like peppers, spinach, mushrooms, onions, etc. I recommend cooking them until tender before adding them to your calzone. Otherwise the water from the veggies could give you a soggy calzone. Plus, since they are inside the calzone they don’t get long enough in the oven to get tender enough.
