It was supposed to be pizza night here, but after visiting Chez Mama this morning I decided to make calzones instead. The Dalai Mama had made calzones a few weeks ago, and I had said then that I was going to make them, but I forgot until I popped over there this morning and lo and behold she'd made them again. I was going to make pizza dough for tonight anyway, so why not make calzones.

The dough recipe I use makes 2 pizza crusts. I usually freeze one and use one that night. However, tonight I used one crust to make a "cheese" pizza for the girls, and I split the other ball of dough in half and used it for calzones for Rob and myself. The sauce was just some organic tomato sauce combined with some dried oregano, basil, garlic powder and crushed red pepper flakes. The calzones were stuffed full of veggies (tomatoes, roasted red peppers, zucchini slices, onions, black olives, and artichoke hearts). The veggies were then topped with a bit of grated Follow Your Heart mozzarella. These were very good, and a nice change from pizza.

Those look awesome! I never made my calzones from the time a while back when the dough wouldn't rise and I made pasta instead. Too bad, because your calzones look really really good!

Those look amazing! I need to try my hand at calzones, I don't think I've ever made them at home before.
