I love calzones. One of the reasons I love them is that someone other than me makes them! Some things are just better when someone else makes it. Do you know what I mean? And I usually cringe at the thought of rolling out dough. I have to be in a "rolling out dough" mood which isn't very often. That's too bad as much as I love pizza and calzones. It could be that I made pizzas at home when I was growing up and I just grew tired of it. But one day, I plan to make a pizza crust from my childhood recipe...when I'm in a "rolling out dough" mood!
The day I planned to make PW Easy Calzones, I had an unexpected guest. One that was very eager to make calzones with me! Yay! My nephew was looking forward to seeing his cousins come home for the weekend and he wanted to surprise them, so he spent the day at my house. And like any typical teenager, he stayed up until 2 a.m. playing video games just like the college crew.
Now for the calzones, I ... uh... he used a frozen bread loaf cut into smaller portions and pepperoni instead of sausage.
I measured the ingredients and he stirred them up. This filling is really good (not raw, in the calzone!).
We laughed at the elongated dough. He explained they are ellipse shape. He likes science, can you tell? When the dough wasn't cooperating, we agreed that some things are best done using your hands!
Oh, and we managed NOT to eat all the pepperoni beforehand.
Brush on the egg wash.
I would like them to be a tad browner, but I decided to take them out of the oven before the filling escaped through that crack.
We loved 'em!
