Mini Calzones


These golden-brown half-moons of tomato-y sauce and gooey cheese are fun as appetizers or as the star of an easy weeknight meal. The homemade dough makes the crusts so much more delicious – just leave time for it to rise for an hour. Individual calzones are perfect as part of lunch for kids, too, allowing you to sneak in some veggies. Use dairy or vegan cheese and customize the fillings any way you please.
