Chicken Pesto Calzone

It is no secret I like chicken pesto anything...yet another variation of one of my favorite dinner combos.  That basil plant was the best $3 I spent all just keeps on growing.


-Pizza dough




-Parmesan Cheese

-Mozzarella cheese

-Salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients except pizza dough.  Roll out dough to form a long circle.  Scoop chicken pesto mixture onto half of the dough.

Fold over dough and pinch dough all the way around ends.  Use a knife to slit some air holes.

Brush dough with some olive oil.  Bake according to pizza dough directions.  I usually cook pizza at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

I also make other pizza variations like chicken or turkey pepperoni with pasta sauce and mozarella.  I also make smaller calzones using the same technique making homemade "pizza pockets" that I cook and then put in the freezer to be reheated later.
