These vegetarian calzones are filled with fresh veggies like kale, onions, mushrooms and bell peppers plus ooey gooey cheese. Don’t forget the tasty pizza sauce for dipping!
A calzone is an Italian oven baked folded pizza. Essentially, a homemade pizza pocket! And who didn’t love a good pizza pocket growing up? You can add anything you want to a calzone the same way you would a slice of pizza. Just fold the pizza dough over your favorite toppings and cheese, seal it up, and bake. Then, dip it in a delicious pizza sauce. Get ready to say “yum” after your first bite!
