Easy Living Mom

We've been having such awesome weather here lately, so Maddox and I have been busy in the garden, in the pool, doing yardwork and visiting friends at the park. I've been running out of quick and simple supper ideas, and then it dawned on me.. pizza!! Not just pizza though, thats too plain and boring... Calzones!! YES!! Then, to make it even better, I decided to make the dough in my bread maker, and time it perfectly so that at 5pm, all I had to do was stuff them, let them rise for 30 mins - 1hr and then bake! Perfect timing for our 6:30pm supper.

I've started learning that Maddox does better if we have a snack around 4 and then a later supper and bath and bed right after. The way he eats he pretty much needs a bath right after anyway! Hey, its been working for us, so go with it right?

Cook Time: 20-25 minutes
Keywords: bake appetizer sandwich entree

Ingredients (10 calzones)
    For the Dough in Bread Machine
      (In the order your machine needs)
      • 1 1/2 cups warm water
      • 3 tbsp oil
      • 3 2/3 cup flour
      • 1/4 cup powdered skim milk
      • 1 tsp quick yeast
      • 1 tsp salt
      • 2 tbsp sugar
      For Pizza Filling
      • pizza sauce
      • shredded cheese
      • pepperoni, ham, salami
      For Ham and Cheese Filling
      • Ham, cut into cubes
      • shredded cheese
      • ranch dressing
      For Buffalo Chicken Filling
      • shredded chicken breast
      • ranch dressing
      • hot sauce
      • shredded cheese
      Add dough ingredients to bread machine according to your bread machines directions. Use dough setting. I also delayed mine a couple hours so it started at 3:30pm so it would be ready out of the oven for supper.

      Remove dough from machine and roll it into circles of approximately 6 inches.

      Spread filling on one half of the circle leaving a border around it for closing.


      Close the calzone by folding the unfilled side on top of the filled side and crimping the edges closed with your fingers or a fork.




      Place on a lightly greased baking pan, or on parchment paper. Let rise approx. 30 minutes or until doubled. Brush lightly with egg/milk mixture and sprinkle with oregano and a bit of extra cheese.



      Bake at 375 F for 20-25 minutes or until puffed and golden.
