Meatball Calzone Recipe

Do you ever get sick of the same old same old dinners week after week? I was in the mood for something different last week and a calzone came to mind! My husband requested that we fill it with meatballs. And that's what we did. Well, my husband sort of took over. It was nice. Here's what we (he) did.

First, collect all the ingredients:
pizza dough
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 cup of diced mushrooms
pre-made frozen meatballs (defrosted)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 cups mozzarella - fresh or shredded or both :)
EVOO with Italian Seasoning
Marinara to add inside calzone or for dipping - your choice

Then, roll out the dough and cut it in half. 

Next, add half of the ingredients to both of the rolled out dough.

Fold the dough in half then pinch all around to close the seam.

Brush the EVOO mixture lightly over the calzones.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until golden brown.
