Calzones



I got this recipe from my cousin. It is really good!!



1 loaf of frozen bread dough, thawed
mozarella cheese, shredded
"Barilla" brand spaghetti sauce

You can use any toppings you want. Here are some suggestions:
pepperoni
ham
mushrooms
olives

You can also add:
bell peppers
onion
pineapple
hamburger
italian sausage
fresh tomatoes

Make about 2 equally-sized dough balls (they should each be a little smaller than a softball). Spread each dough ball out on a lightly floured surface as if you were making a pizza (spread it out as much as you can without tearing it). Put as many toppings as you would like in the middle then mix it all together with cheese. Carefully fold the dough over the toppings and pinch the edges together. Make a couple little slits in the top of the dough, spray the top lightly with cooking spray, then bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes (or until golden brown). Heat the spaghetti sauce in a small pot and simmer until calzones are done. You can serve the calzones with the sauce on the side then dip the calzone into it OR you can pour the sauce over the calzones and top with cheese (thats the way we like it!). For all you meat lovers out there, you can brown some hamburger and add it to the spaghetti sauce to make it extra rich and meaty.

I've had these before and they are SO delicious. And we've also tried them with alfredo sauce and chicken. YUM...

Do you have a recipe for a pesto calzone that's good? I remember at BYU (from the cougar eat) having a pesto calzone with alfredo sauce on top and loved it, but have never found a duplicate.
