Mixed Vegetable and Pepperoni Calzones
This recipe for Mixed Vegetable and Pepperoni Calzones is a part of the Heinz Classico #FamilyFavorites campaign and has been compensated by #CollectiveBias. As always, all opinions are my own.
We use a lot of pasta sauce – in mostaccioli, homemade pizza, spaghetti, lasagna and calzones, it is definitely a staple in our house. We’re not Italian, but we seem to like a lot of Italian food. But I think a lot of Americans like Italian food!
Whenever pasta sauce is on the grocery list, I head to Walmart so I can browse what I call “The Wall of Sauce”. The wall of sauce is an amazing thing, just think, back in the day you only had one option. Not anymore – you can practically buy any flavor of sauce you like.
Ryan is a huge cheese lover, so the Parmesan and Romano Family Favorites sauce from Classico caught my eye. Double the amount of cheese is always a good thing in any kind of Italian dish!
Ryan and I like to celebrate Fridays with a little something we like to call Fancy Friday. Of course we love pizza, but we can’t just order pizza to celebrate fancy friday – so we like to make homemade calzones. And the best part? We get to skip the wait at the pizza store and skip the pizza delivery fee by making our own calzones stuffed with our favorite toppings! Getting to choose our own toppings is a great thing especially when Ryan and I have opposite tastes. Ryan is all about the meat and spicy toppings and I love the vegetables, so personal sized calzones are a fantastic solution.
