Easy Calzones - The First Year Blog #Calzones

Making these calzones seems easier than making homemade pizza, and don’t they look tempting? Sometimes you know you shouldn’t eat more pizza, but don’t worry..this isn’t pizza, it’s a calzone, so go ahead and eat it!

1 can biscuit dough (with at least 8 biscuits)
your choice of cheese
your choice of seasonings (garlic, italian seasoning, etc)
your choice of toppings
marinara sauce, to serve on the side

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Bake until it’s a nice golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.

Here’s what’s in our calzones.

My husband is pretty lucky, he gets to enjoy this all to himself because I have a gluten allergy. He loves them. When I ask for dinner suggestions it’s either calzones or mostaccioli, which will be coming on the blog soon!

Better than dorm food, Calzones

When Ryan and I were freshmen at the U of M, one of his favorite things to eat that they served at the dining hall were calzones. We’re trying to expand our recipe repertoire, so I found this calzone recipe from Taste of Home. Verdict? Ryan loved it and said I was the best wife he’s ever had.

Make It Your Own Calzone
1 tube refrigerated pizza crust (we settled for using a tube of biscuit dough and it worked great)
Whatever toppings you want (pepperoni, mozzarella, green peppers, and onions)
Roll the dough into a large rectangle on a greased baking sheet. Layer half of the dough (lengthwise) with toppings then fold dough over the filling and press the edges firmly to seal. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes. Serve with sauce.

I had trouble connecting the dough in the middle, so next time I either need to roll it thinner or use less filling. While Ryan ate the calzone, I ate a gluten free homemade bagel pizza, it was gross.

But I have some exciting news to share- through some divine appointments by God, I will be interning for the Champaign Park District on their special events team! This opportunity is everything I’ve dreamed of, expect that’s it’s all volunteer. I still need to find another paid job, but we’re trusting God that he will work everything for his good.

Also, I started my pottery class last night. We learned how to make pinch pots and piggy banks. There are 3 women in my class who are studying animal science so they were making all sorts of crazy clay animals. Soon we will learn how to use the wheel. Any suggestions for what to make?
