Directions

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown, 17 to 20 minutes.

This is good stuff! I followed the recipe in spirit w/a few minor tweaks based on what we had on hand. I used previously frozen (and thawed) pizza dough (Jay's Signature Pizza Crust from this site). We always keep shredded grilled chicken in the freezer so I was able to simply heat the butter/Red Hot/chicken and eliminate the boil. Operating on rote I sprayed and cornmealed the pan before spreading the dough (and liked the texture it added). After spreading the chicken over the base cheese I squirted a bit of light ranch dressing followed by the final cheese. I used Kraft's "Pizza Blend" shredded cheese w/a bit of shredded white cheddar too. This baked 20 minutes in our over followed by a few minutes under broil to brown the top. Our one complaint if you will is it was quite salty (and I love salt). I'll search for a low sodium hot sauce to use next time. THANKS for the recipe! Read More

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 time I bought a 2lb prepared chicken at the grocery store and shredded that. This recipe was super fast and super good. Thanks for this recipe - I'll be making it again! Read More

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 reheated on the stove top with the butter and buffalo sauce. We like celery with our buffalo dishes so I made half the calzone as written and the other half I added diced celery to the chicken mixture. When I make this again I will add celery to all of it. This is very filling and lasted us for 2 dinners with enough leftover for DH lunch. Great recipe that I will make again. Served 'Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad' from AR with it. Read More

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 homemade crust would have taken this up a notch but for a quick easy meal it was pretty tasty! Thanks for sharing this recipe lukeybear2007! Read More

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 keeper. Read More

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 cup. They soaked it right up. It was actually a little too much so I have some lunch tomorrow! I made two calzones dividing the store bought Publix dough in two. I followed the chicken measurements and Franks. I rolled two mini circles keeping a little mound of flour nearby to pat my palms into. I spread out the chicken mixture. I added a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese on each. Then added the mozzarella cheese and then patted some smashed potatoes on top. I put each on a large cookie sheet covered in parchment sprinkled with yellow cornmeal. I set the two sealed calzones on it and baked them in my convection oven on 420 for 20 minutes. Oh I also had sliced tomatoes and basil that I put on top of each after I rubbed them with olive oil. So it took a little longer to bake because of the potatoes. I will definitely do this one again!

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 definitely make again! Read More

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 to the chicken/buffalo sauce mixture makes the calzone a bit creamier and I prefer it that way! I don't put the mixture over the entire dough just half and fold the dough over top. I have tried this using dough from a bakery that was frozen and the pre rolled dough from the dairy section. Don't use the pre rolled dough from the dairy section of your grocery store it sucks. Use the real stuff from the bakery department you can find in the frozen aisle or sometimes in the bakery dept cooler. Or make your own (I'm not doing that). One of these calzones is enough to feed 2 people with massive appetites. Could feed 3 maybe even 4 if you're feeding small kids! Great recipe cook all the time now! Read More
