Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (20 ounce) package Simply Macaroni & Cheese
  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • 1 cup barbecued pork, shredded
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 12 cup fried onions, chopped


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Divide dough into 4 equal portions and roll each into a 8" circle. Place 1/2 cup of unheated Simply Macaroni & Cheese into the center of each dough circle. Top mac& cheese with 1/4 cup pork, 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, and 2 tablespoons onion.
  3. Fold dough in half to create a semi-circle. Crimp the edges together with a fork and place on a non-stick baking sheet. Brush each calzone with some water and poke 1 or 2 holes in the tops with a knife for steam to escape.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and serve.
