As a mom to four kids, I’m always looking for easy dinners I can throw together in a hurry. These Quick and Easy Calzones are one my my kids’ favorite meals!
My kids love helping me roll out the pizza dough and selecting their own fillings to put inside their calzone.
These homemade calzones are great as a quick weeknight dinner or a tasty appetizer for your next party!
How to make homemade calzones:
It doesn’t get much easier than these Quick and Easy Calzones. Using a store-bought pizza crust makes these absolutely foolproof and allows you to throw them together in a matter of minutes.
Start by spraying a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set it aside while the oven heats to 400˚ F.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out your store-bought pizza dough then cut it into 6 equal-sized squares.
In the middle of each square, spread some marinara, shredded mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.
Fold each square of pizza dough in half to form a triangle, then press the edges together with a fork to seal them.
Brush the top of each calzone with some melted butter, then sprinkle on Italian seasoning and grated parmesan cheese. This topping is so delicious and flavorful!
Place each calzone on the prepared pan then bake for 10-12 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
We love to serve these easy pepperoni pizza calzones with some warm marinara or ranch dressing for dipping.
Other Options for calzone filling ingredients:
- Green bell pepper
- Sliced Olives
