Easy, Cheesy Calzone

This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


•    16 oz. prepared pizza dough
•    1/2 c. pizza sauce
•    2 c. shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
•    3 c. cooked, chopped broccoli, drained
•    1 Tbsp. butter, melted



Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking sheet. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to form a 9 x 14 rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Spread pizza sauce over half of the dough. Sprinkle cheese over entire piece of dough to within half inch of all of the edges. Layer broccoli on one half of the 14 inch side of the dough. Fold dough in half over the cheese and broccoli filling. Seal edges of the calzone by pressing with the tines of a fork. Prick top. Brush top with butter. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before cutting.
