Mini Calzones

Yield: 8 calzones

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook: 40 minutes

Mini Calzones are stuffed with provolone, ricotta, and salami wrapped in a golden brown crusty pizza dough! Each bite has meaty, cheesy, crusty goodness.

Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Kind of like an antipasto plate wrapped in pizza dough. You can’t beat those cheesy, meaty, salty, and savory Italian flavors. I love the little unexpected twist the provolone adds.
Texture: The crust is crusty on the outside, chewy inside, with that rich cheesy filling. Totally addicting.
Ease: Very easy, especially if you have the pizza dough prepared already! Check out my favorite recipe for homemade pizza dough, it’s SO easy. You can also use store-bought to save some time.
Appearance: These babies just belong in your hand, they’re perfectly sized!
Pros: Fun, flavorful, and crave-worthy. They’re like those frozen pizza rolls, but 1,000 times better.
Cons: None!
Would I make this again? Oh yeah.

    Hold on to that dream. I finally got to go to Italy at age 49! It is as spectacular as you imagine & we can’t wait to go again. These look amazing & I am going to try them. I have some dough in the freezer just aching to be used.
