If you are looking for a fast dinner idea or a great party appetizer – these easy calzones are going to become your go-to favorite.
The part that makes this recipe so quick and easy is that it uses refrigerated biscuit dough. I like to call these “make it your own calzones” because you can customize what’s inside of them depending upon your tastes.
We like to use onions, peppers, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, the occasional olives, italian spices and garlic powder.
Below is a picture tutorial of how to form the dough into calzones.
Grease a large cookie sheet, place each biscuit on the pan in a rectangle as shown, somewhat close together. Begin to press the biscuits together with your hands. If the biscuits are too far apart, you will see holes forming, move them closer together.
As you are pressing the dough together, you also want to stretch it, making a larger rectangle. You can use a rolling pin for this if you’d like.
Once you have a large connected rectangle, layer on your toppings. We usually do cheese, pepperoni, vegetables, spices, and sometimes more cheese.
Next, you want to connect the 2 ends together and bundle up the toppings. Seal the edges by pressing down firmly or smoothing the dough together.
