“Don't let the name fool you - they are very good! I found this recipe online once, but lost it and have not been able to find the original. This is my version of what I remember. My husband loves these. I make a big batch and freeze - then they can be individually heated in the microwave for a quick lunch.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cans tuna
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (your choice, I like cheddar)
  • mayonnaise
  • pizza dough (you can use homemade or buy the kind that comes in rolls - near the biscuits)
  • 1 egg


  1. Drain tuna and mix with shredded cheese.
  2. Add just enough mayo (approximately 2 Tbsp) to moisten.
  3. Place a scoop into prepared triangle-shaped pizza dough.
  4. Seal edges with brushed beaten egg.
  5. With a fork, press prongs along edges to further seal the calzone.
  6. If desired, brush entire calzone with beaten egg for that glossy finish.
  7. Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes or until browned.
