Yield: Depends if this is an appetizer or a meal. It has about 8-10 sli

Ingredients:

  • pizza dough
  • vegetables: peppers, onion, celery, tomatoes, mushrooms, or whatever you might need to use up
  • spices: basil, oregano, black pepper, Old Bay Seasoning
  • olive oil
  • cheese
  • 1 egg

This is a recipe made from leftovers so use whatever ingredients you might have on hand.

Steps:

  1. Put the dough on a cookie sheet covered with plastic wrap that was sprayed with oil. Push and pull it out to make Calzone.

    I looked in the veggie bins, I used 1 green pepper, 1 small red pepper, a small onion, a small piece of celery, a handful of grape tomatoes and a few mushroom. I sliced everything up paper thin, and halved the tomatoes.
  2. I tossed them in a fry pan with a little olive oil and a few spices, basil, oregano, black pepper, a dash of Old Bay Seasoning. Stirring it up for about two minutes.
  3. Before putting it on the dough, I gave the dough a rub of olive oil and basil, Then I put about a 1/2 cup of fine shredded Mexican cheese down the middle of the dough.
  4. Using a slotted spoon, I poured the veggies on top of the cheese, Then I topped it off with another 1/2 cup of Mexican cheese.
  5. I rolled the dough gently toward me,pulling the plastic wrap, it helps keeping the dough rolling, tucking in the ends while I was rolling until it was closing. At the end you want it all sealed. And remove the plastic. I use olive oil on my fingers to seal the edges and wash down the dough.
  6. Last, I use 1 egg beaten, and do an egg wash for a very shiny golden brown finish. Cook for 25 minutes at 375 degrees F.
