Veggie Calzone!

What a great way to eat your vegetables.

I actually love veggies anyway, but putting them in a calzone just makes them even better. Whenever I have a bowl of leftover vegetables, I love to use them in different ways -omelettes, fritattas, with pasta and in calzones.

It's so easy too. In this case especially, because I bought the dough instead of making it from scratch.
-I just divided the dough into 4 equal balls and rolled them out on a floured surface into small circles. You could make mini pizzas with these as well, which I did and will show you in my next post.
-The veggies need a little more spice when there in a calzone, so I added some garlic powder, Italian seasoning, fresh parsley, grated parmesan cheese and extra virgin olive oil. Then I added in some feta cheese to top it all off.
-You just spoon the veggies onto on side of the dough round and fold the other side over. Crimp the edges with your fingers or a fork, brush the top with olive oil and cut a few slits on the top for the steam to escape.
-Bake on a pizza stone at 500º for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

That's all there is to it. Give it a try, I'm sure you'll be glad you did!!

Brilynn, You got that right. I could even eat a calzone with nothing in it and it would taste great!

Claire, Yum that sounds good too.
