  • Cookie Sheet
  • Microwave Bowl
  • Pastry Brush
  • Pizza Cutter
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray


  • 13.8 ounces refrigerated pizza dough
  • ½ cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 24 slices of pepperoni
  • 1 Tablespoon butter melted
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Roll out the pizza crust, and cut it into 6 equal-sized squares.
  • In the middle of each square, place a portion of the marinara sauce, shredded cheese, and 4 pepperoni slices.
  • Fold the dough over into a triangle, and use a fork to press along the edges of the triangle to seal it closed.
  • Place Calzones onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Brush the top of each Calzone with butter, then sprinkle with Italian seasoning and grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until tops are golden brown.
  • Serve warm with extra pizza sauce for dipping.


  • If you do not want to use refrigerated dough, you don’t have to! You can make homemade dough and use it in place of the refrigerated dough.
