This Calzone is so delicious. I originally found the recipe in Bon Appetit magazine. Every time I make it I receive requests for the recipe. If you don’t want to whip up your own pizza dough which is fairly simple to do, buy purchased refrigerated uncooked dough from your local pizzeria or grocery store. If you want to make your own dough here is a fairly easy and reliable recipe : http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/pizza-dough-recipe/index.html
My tips: I usually make one large calzone, use a large cookie sheet as the dough rises while the calzone bakes. Calzones and pizzas are always a crowd favorite for entertaining and parties!
