  1. Preheat oven to 410 degrees F (210 degrees C). Grease a pizza pan.
  2. Place chicken into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Cook the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a bowl and shred with two forks.
  3. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chicken and Buffalo wing sauce in the hot butter until chicken is coated and heated through, 2 to 4 minutes.
  4. Turn pizza dough out onto a generously floured surface. Roll dough into a 12-inch round. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and spread 1 cup mozzarella cheese in the center of the dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Spread chicken mixture over cheese; top chicken mixture with remaining 1 cup cheese.
  5. Fold pizza dough in half and pinch edges together to seal. Transfer calzone to prepared pizza pan and brush top with remaining 1 tablespoon oil.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown, 17 to 20 minutes.

Recipe Group Selection: 31, January 2015 ~ My DH and I really enjoyed this calzone. I changed my cooking method to baking the chicken, as Christina did. I baked the chicken the day ahead and ...

I made this calzone for a New Year's Eve party and it was gone before any other item. I made it again the next night for my family and the neighborhood kids and they raved about it. To save tim...

This had great buffalo flavor and was so easy to put together. Especially if you cheat and use leftover grilled chicken! I used thin refrigerated pizza crust, which worked great. Obviously, a...

This was really good, but, as I usually do, I embellished the recipe. I cooked six small red potatoes, quartered, in a pot, and smashed them with a little more Frank's, probably another quarter...

Yum! These were very good. I made a homemade pizza dough and my calzones ended up a little bready, but I'll bet with pre-made dough or biscuit mix, it would be even better. This recipe is a k...

This was a great base recipe. The only changes I made were to add chopped red peppers on top of the chicken, then to drizzle ranch dressing over the top, then add the mozzarella cheese. Will d...

First time, turned out great! Few tips, put the dough on a pan before adding ingredients. Trying to move the calzone full of stuffing to a pan is quite difficult! I add 1/4 block cream cheese ...

Made this for Recipe Group...Delicious! I did cook my chicken in the oven seasoned w/ evoo, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Super simple and very tasty...I would make this again, for sure! Thank...
