I decided I'm going to try one new recipe a week. And as you probably guessed, I plan on sharing them on here. It's much easier to keep them all in one place and not have to write them down or print them out so they're easy to find when I want to make them again. Plus maybe some of you will think something sounds good and try it for yourselves!
I will try to take pictures too, but I don't have a fancy camera and my photography skills are horrible so please excuse the poor quality.
This first recipe for the calzone is actually from this blog. I found it before I found the other blog and thought this would be something Tyler and Kyla would enjoy. As you'll see, I started with a really easy one :)
What you'll need
1 roll of refrigerated pizza dough
1 T. Melted Butter
Heat oven to 425
1. Roll pizza dough out on a cookie sheet (I sprayed the cookie sheet with cooking spray just to be safe)
2. Spread pizza sauce out on one half of the dough
3. Add cheese onto sauce
4. Add pepperoni and more cheese if desired
5. Fold the other half of the dough over and seal edges
6. Bake for 18 minutes. With about 5 minutes left, brush the melted butter on top and sprinkle with Parmesan
|It's hard to tell how big it is, but I cut it into thirds|
|Mmm, cheesy goodness :) This is one of the thirds and was too much for me (even while pregnant), but perfect for Tyler. We had one third left for Kyla and I to have for lunch the next day.|
|Delicious served with a salad|
The verdict? We all loved it! Tyler said "Definitely add this to the rotation!" We're going to have it again in a couple weeks, but I'm going to add mushrooms next time. You can really put anything in that you want.
Do you want to know something I learned while making this? I actually enjoy spending time cooking in my kitchen. I'm excited to continue learning new things!
