Today we are making Calzones. This is a super easy, very frugal recipe that you can use for lunch, dinner or even breakfast! This recipe freezes well (after cooking) and works great for leftovers.
Here is what you need:
Refrigerated pizza dough (click on coupons.com on our sidebar to get a great coupon for Pillsbury pizza dough), 1 jar pizza sauce, pizza cheese and toppings
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, roll out your pizza dough onto your pan and cut into 6 squares.
Step 2: Add a couple of spoonfuls of pizza sauce on each square and spread out evenly.
Step 3: Add a handful of cheese to each calzone.
Step 4: Add your toppings. We go simple to save $$$ and just use pepperoni.
Step 5: Pinch the corners of each square until they are sealed.
Step 6: Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes.
Step 7: Enjoy!
If you have leftovers, these freeze great or just stick in the fridge for lunch tomorrow.
Here are a couple of different ways to spice up your calzones: ham and cheese; eggs, cheese and sausage; mexican style (taco meat, cheese veggies).
I would love to hear your other great ideas for calzone fillings. Post a comment and let me know!
