Hey, Foodies! Happy Friday!
Today I’m sharing another of my recipes I created to satisfy my pizza/calzone cravings. Pillsbury is kind enough to make its Crescent Rolls with baking soda instead of yeast AND – did you know that you can buy it by the sheet, without the perforations? This discovery was a game changer for me, because 1) sometimes you (or at least I) NEED a little bread and 2) there are SO many things you can do with a sheet of delicious crescent dough!
And here’s one of them!
This recipe makes 6 mini calzones
1 can of Pillsbury Crescent Sheet Dough
(any additional cheese you want to add)
optional – marinara sauce
Per dough directions, preheat oven to 375 (or 350 depending on the bakeware you’re using).
Unroll the dough onto a baking sheet. Repair any tears or holes in the dough the best you can, then cut the dough into 6 sections.
You’ll be folding the dough in half, so place ingredients on the triangular section on one side of the fold.
Place a pinch of mozzarella on one side of each section.
Add pepperoni (I use three slices in a triangle pattern for each portion).
Drop a spoonful of ricotta on top of the pepperoni and spread it out a bit.
Add more mozzarella (and any other cheese you like, like grated parmesan).
Fold the dough over and press edges together, tucking ingredients inside. It doesn’t matter if there are gaps in the closed seam.
Place in oven and bake for 9-11 minutes. Enjoy!
If you make this, please let me know how you liked it!
