Around my house, my wife and I often make pizza on Saturday night…especially during college football season. In my opinion, there are few things that beat sitting down with a cold drink and a hot pizza on a weekend night. In fact, just talking about pizza is making me crave it, and it’s only Tuesday!
The other night, we decided to try something a little bit different. We still wanted a pizza night, but we also had some leftover ricotta cheese in the fridge. So we decided to go with a calzone instead, and I must say it turned out amazing! I went with the exact same dough that we use for our pizzas, but I just turned it into a calzone instead. (For the dough recipe, check out my previous post on How to Make the Perfect Rustic Homemade Pizza Dough.)
For the calzone, we went with pretty much the same toppings that we use on our pizza, but you can easily adapt these based on your preferences. However, if you’ve never tried jalapenos on your pizza, then you definitely need to give this a shot. (I choose to take most of the seeds and ribs out to keep the heat under control, but this is a personal preference.
Is it Saturday yet?
