I've been wanting to try and make calzones for awhile, but just have not gotten around to attempting them until the other night.

I started off using the pizza dough recipe from The Naked Whiz's website. http://www.nakedwhiz.com/pizza.htm It's a simple recipe that involves dumping all the ingredients in a bread machine and hitting start. How easy is that?

One of the calzones started with pepperoni and salami


The other had leftover tri-tip, onions and a bit of horseradish.


For cheese we just used a mix of what we had on hand. Didn't feel like going to the store.


Ready to go on the Egg at 550F




My ugly mug


The calzones took about 15 minutes. Pepperoni and salami done


Tri-tip


For a first time, I was pretty impressed. I guess I have Dyal to thank for showing me the way. I will say that I don't think we added enough toppings. The toppings to dough ratio was a bit off, so next time we will add more. And there will be a next time, for sure.

WOW, they do look good... kids wanted me to make pizza yesterday but I didn't have the toppings, went out and bought them this morning, but calzones just need folding over!

Yep, and a little egg wash to make them brown up nicely.

My family thanks you for a new recipe to improve my technique on.



The small bowl is what was left of the garlic tomato sauce, and the larger bowl is some salsa.

Need to use more egg wash and pay attention to cooking times.



These were the last two and were a lot better.

I used the recipe for the sauce.

My contents.

Garlic tomato sauce on the bottom, pepperoni, chopped ham, (1/4" cubes), medium Cheddar, Mozzarella, egg wash the edges, fold and cook. I preheated the two pizza stones to 400, then put 2 calzones on each and cooked them off, then took those out and did the second batch.

Things I learned from the cook.

1) Roll out the dough, and use a plate to make nice round shapes... the freehand shapes don't work! Duh!

2) Don't take a trip to the store and rely on the kids to keep an eye on the oven while you are gone! Duh x 2!

3) Don't take the pictures with your cell phone, they never turn out as good as you think they will!

OK well it worked so brilliantly the last time when I wasn't paying attention.

So here goes round two with more care and attention... and a better camera to take the shots too!

The smaller size and a full coating of the egg wash, along with paying better attention to the time they cooked for, gave a great product.

Thanks to Griffin for the inspiration!

You are becoming a master at those, SoEzzy! I think if Mrs. G came home and saw that I had turned her table into a mess like that she would be quite PO'ed at me. She's already mad when I destroy the kitchen. Laughing

Thanks Griffin... as you can see from the look of the table in the last picture we do tidy up as we go so I don't let the wife see the table while it's too messed up!

She enjoys eating them to stay mad at me for long... I also tripled up on the sauce recipe so that there is sauce for dipping too!

Great idea on making more sauce for dipping. I "try" and clean as I go, but I can still destroy a kitchen. Laughing

Griffin,
The Calzones look great! I've been meaning to try making some myself but keep getting sidetracked. Now that I see yours I'm really wanting to try this!

Wow! Those look awesome, and I'm getting really hungry just looking at them. I never thought about making something like that on the bbq, but I might give it a shot. Better than heating up the whole house! Thanks for sharing!

Griffin and SoEzzy, those look fantastic.
I guess I'm gonna have to break down and try some.
Wonder if a pizza stone and a Weber Kettle would get hot enough?
