I use this recipe all of the time. (The only change I make to the dough portion is that I add some "Italian" seasonings- oregano, garlic powder, and pepper) I make 1 and 1/2 of the recipe, split the dough into 8 pieces, and then flatten and stretch it into small pizza shapes. Then, I put the stuffing in (NO PIZZA SAUCE) and pull all of the sides up and seal all of the toppings inside. (we use motz. and pepperoni for my kids and husband, and I love sauted onions and garlic with motz. and cheddar cheese for my toppings!) I bake them for 20-30 minutes, and then we use pizza sauce to dip them in. My kids would rather have these than delivery pizza! It is their favorite meal! Read More

Found that I would rather make a pizza these recipe was more of a hassle plus there is too much 'crust' for my likes. Read More

I admit it, I cheat on these and use store bought cans of pizza dough. One can of dough makes two very large calzones. Then I fill them with the sauce, pepperoni, veggies, salami, cheese, etc. fold over and crimp, brush with melted butter. My family adore these! One thing that I have learned: make sure to buy quality meats, the more quality the less grease that runs off. I always have marinara sauce on the side for dipping. My teenage boys and hubby go gaga over these! Read More

Oh My Gosh! This was the bomb at our house. I made the dough and fixings and everyone filled their own to bake. I cut the dough into 6x6" pieces and formed them like "hot pockets". Still munching on leftovers (it makes alot for four) 3 days later! My husband and I fought over the last 1/2. I made the dough ahead & folded it in thirds and refridgerated it while fixing the rest. Pulled it out puched it down rolled to final size sliced filled sealed and baked as directed. I also added 1 xtra Tbls. sugar and a 2 second count of olive oil to the dough and did not do this in a bread machine. Very versatile dough! Outstanding! Easy! Thanks for submitting this recipe! Also baking on parchment paper keeps it from sticking over browning and makes clean up easy. Read More

Very very good!! I too made the dough w/o a bread machine. I let it rise for about 30 mins. The dough turned out wonderfully crispy on the outside moist on the inside. I sprinkled garlic powder and basil after brushing with butter to add some seasoning and color. Excellent!! Read More

My family loved these. I only used the dough recipe though and then I added a mixture of ricotta mozzerella an egg chopped spinich mushrooms and tomato to fill it. I served it with a side of homemade pasta sauce. My husband LOVED it. I am going to make it again this week. It will definately be a regular in our house. Read More

So easy and so great! Even made the dough by hand since I do not own a bread machine. I added some oregano garlic salt and parsley flakes to the dough and it turned out great. Sauted some onion and garlic to add to the pizza sauce and stuffed with veggies instead of meat. Came out very tasty and smelled delicious! Thanks! Read More

I use the bread and fill it with everything. Basically you are making your own Hot Pockets just choose a filling add cheese and a sauce if you choose BBQ is great. Then bake. I make 6 (small) portions for individual size calzones. 4 would be a generous size. This is really easy. Love it. Read More

This is our "guests are coming" recipe. Instead of ordering pizza we serve this instead. It looks beautiful and smells wonderful cooking. Guests will think you're a chef! I'm almost embarassed to say how many times we've had this in the past month! I make the crust in the bread machine. We've tried many stuffings but pepperoni and extra cheese is our favorite. We like 1 large one better than 2 smaller ones. Read More

The first time I made this the dough turned out way too soft and I ended up adding more flour but my husband REALLY loved the end results so I made it again and it turned out fine. I used pepperoni onions green peppers mozzerella and ricotta cheese for the filling and can't wait to try it with ham and pineapple! Read More
