Supreme Calzone

Pin It
I don't like to eat store-bought pizza that often just because of the calories and the grease. But when I do get it, I like to get it right. Getting it "right" means including all of my favorite toppings, such as green peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives and pepperoni. So when I was going to make calzones for dinner, it was only right that I included all of my favorite ingredients.

This is another super quick and easy meal. This one would be fun for the kids since it's fun to stretch out the dough and they can fill their personal calzone with all their favorite toppings and with as much or as little as they want. What a fun family weeknight activity! And it will feed you too!

I chose my favorite pizza toppings for this calzone, but you can fill it with whatever you prefer. Make sure after you fold over the dough to press the edges together very tightly with a fork. You don't want it exploding in your oven. I've heard that causes fires (I have proof). Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 1 quick and easy pie crust
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, cut into small strips
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup black olives, sliced
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni slices
  • 2 cups Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1 cup pizza sauce, for dipping

Make pizza dough as directed. Place baking stone in the oven and preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Heat oil over medium heat in a small skillet. Add bell peppers and mushrooms. Cook for about 5 minutes or until tender.

Divide dough in half and roll out each piece into 8-inch rounds. Put 1/2 cup of cheese on one half of each circle. Top each piece with pepperoni, bell peppers, mushrooms, and olives. Put remaining 1/2 cup of cheese on top of each round.

Fold over the other half of the circle and press the ends with a fork to seal.

Lightly whisk the egg and the water together. Brush the mixture over top of each calzone. Puncture a few holes in the top to allow steam to escape.

Transfer the calzones to the preheated baking stone. Cook for 12-15 minutes or until calzone is lightly brown. Serve with pizza sauce.
