More About This Recipe
  • Calzones are the perfect hybrid—part pizza, part sandwich. By tucking pizza fillings in between layers of Pillsbury refrigerated pizza crust, you cut down on the mess of traditional pizza. Plus, calzones are perfect for dipping in sauces, from marinara to ranch. Pro tip: Try cutting your calzone into strips for easier dipping (or for small kid hands). This recipe is also great for customizing flavors to your specific taste. Want to put a vegetarian spin on it? Substitute the meat for spinach and feta cheese. Feeling adventurous? Try some chopped up pineapple for a Hawaiian-style meal. Do you know the best way to reheat your leftover pizza? Spoiler alert: It’s not the microwave.
