  • 1 ball pizza dough try our recipe!
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 4 tsp parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pepperoni
  • bell peppers
  • olives
  • ham sliced


  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Prepare baking surface by dusting lightly with flour or cornmeal.
  • If using homemade pizza dough, follow dough directions up until shaping. Divide into 4 balls and make (4) 8"-10"circles.
  • Place ingredients on one side of each circle. Divide seasonings evenly and sprinkle over each. Fold the top over each and crimp the edges by pinching and folding over. Optional: cut 2-3 small slits on the top to prevent bubbles.
  • Place on prepared surface and bake for 10-12 minutes (watch to make sure the tops don't burn).
  • Remove from oven when golden brown. Brush with butter and sprinkle with parmesan. Cool for 3-5 minutes before serving.


-This recipe makes 4 large calzones and 6 medium size calzones. It just depends on how you divide the dough.
