Hello all! Sorry for not posting much in the last week (I’d like to give a big shout-out to Erin for keeping things up!) but I have been in North Dakota with Kevin, keeping him company since his grandpa died last week. I did want to post a quick recipe that I use quite often. It’s from Hunt’s (Thanks ConAgra for employing so many of my family members, including me at a time, and making awesome food!) and is super easy. The original recipe calls for sausage, onion, and green pepper; however, you can easily sub in your favorite pizza toppings. Kevin and I make it with green pepper and pepperoni (turkey pepperoni if you are looking to cut calories/fat). Here’s the recipe I use (again, you can totally add in whatever ingredients you’d like instead of pepperoni and green pepper–except if you are a sicko who likes pineapple on a pizza. Don’t you dare put it in this calzone). Enjoy!
Pizza “Calzone” Bake
1 refrigerated pizza dough (I use Pillsbury)
1/2 cup pizza sauce (I like Hunt’s Sauce with Basil, Oregano, and Garlic)
Pepperoni (to your liking)
1 green pepper
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Unroll the pizza dough on a greased baking sheet.
2. Spread pizza sauce on dough, stopping 1/2 inch from the edge of the dough. Put toppings on and the cheese.
3. Pull the dough over to connect the two long edges together. Make sure it is pinched so the topping does not come out. Then pinch the short edges over.
4. Bake for 15-18 minutes and enjoy!
