Calzone Wanna-Be

Yesterday afternoon Little Finch and I made pastry dough in hopes to use it with something for dinner. After looking around the fridge I decided on making something similar to a calzone. I had several bits of veggies left over from other meals and needed to use them before they went bad. I also had some mini pepperoni slices from a pizza we had made a while ago. The great thing about these is that you can add in whatever you like or have laying around the kitchen (preferably not your children or their fifty million toys though). I made these calzones personal size rather than a whole pie because Lover Boy doesn’t like all of the veggies I like. Also, rather than making your own dough you can buy already made pie crusts that you just roll out and cut to the size you need.

Look good?














Want to make some also? (I’ll post the dough recipe tomorrow)

*Heat oven to 400 degrees

Brown 1lb ground beef
Add spices: pepper (1/2 tsp), crushed pepper (1/4 tsp optional), oregano (1 tsp), garlic salt (3/4 tsp), parsley (1 tsp)

While your beef is browning dice up whatever veggies you'd like to add. I used green pepper, red onion, spinach and mini pepperoni (oh pepperoni is not a veggie?!? 😉 )
Add a can of drained diced tomatoes to the beef and stir in. Turn off heat and let sit until ready to use
In a bowl mix together whatever you want to go in each calzone. Mine were different from Lover Boy's because he doesn't like green peppers
Roll out your dough. Make as big or small as you'd like. It doesn't have to be perfect
Add your meat and veggie mixture and top with cheese
Roll edges inward and pinch shut
Place on baking sheet and put in oven at 400 degrees. Bake until brown on top, about 20-25 min















































































































As always let me know what you think of this if you give it a try!
