“This was an experiment with making our own pizza dough. You can also use frozen dough. We made it pretty big and ate off it for a while, but this recipe make enough for individual Calzones for your preference. Stuff with whatever you wish, can even make own pizza for sauce. Saves well in fridge and makes great left overs, especially for a quick lunch.”
