Calzones

Have you ever stopped by $5 Dinners? Erin posts some wonderful recipes on her site and the best part is they're all inexpensive to make. She even has a new cookbook out. Tonight, I decided to try her Pepperoni Calzones. Well, a couple of them had pepperoni. The boys aren't fans so I also made some with ham, plain cheese, and soy crumbles with green peppers.



Per the recipe, I made the dough in the bread machine and then rolled it out by hand. I believe it was the first time I have ever tried that technique even though I have read about it many times. I used 2 1/4 teaspoons of my bulk yeast instead of the called for envelope. I am still working on my first bag of yeast, but I have given away two bags to family members. I think it is time to start making my own bread more often for sandwiches.

  1. Mmmm...I just love seeing recipes like this, they remind me that there's so much more to life than takeout! I need to start making my own pizza/calzones - my husband would be so pleased!

    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Thanks for sharing this. I've thought often of making calzones instead of pizza and this looks easy enough that I think I'll finally do it!

  3. I've seen Calzonne recipes and have thought of making them often...I think you've put me over the edge. :) I haven't made them in YEARS!
