Homemade Calzones

Yep, another Pinterest recipe. This one was picked out by Bubba though!
What you'll need: 
(For two LARGE Calzones)
2 Rolls Pizza dough
1 small jar of pizza sauce
Toppings (well, insides) as desired. We went with Pepperoni

How to do it:
1. Lay out dough on a baking sheet. You'll use one per sheet, they're huge. Stretch out using your fingers (or toss if you know how, but that does take practice!) Add pizza sauce, and use the bottom of a spoon to spread it nice and even. Note: Only do about 1/3 of the dough, and only do the middle. You'll need the rest for the braid later.
2. Add your toppings! Layer them if you'd like. The bigger the better!
3. Heat oven according to dough package. For us, it was 400 for 10 minutes. While the oven was heating, I used a knife to cut strips of the dough. Crossing one over the other from top to bottom, "braid" your strips. (See after photo for help).
4. Bake according to package. It took about 12 minutes per Calzone. Let sit a few minutes to cool, then transfer onto a plate.

We used our leftover dough for Brayden and made him one of his own (minus the pepperoni!). He loved it and really enjoyed gnawing on it. Bubba even gave his seal of approval and asked me to make it again soon!

There you have it! An easy dinner, this took me less than 30 minutes to make beginning to end!
