When I grew up we had pizza for dinner every Friday night.  It was our family tradition, one I plan on continuing when I have kids.  Hubs and I love pizza and enjoy making it on our own.  I saw a picture on Pinterest, which was my inspiration for this dish.  To be honest, I didn't know whether to title this post stromboli or calzone.  I can never remember the difference.  Either way, this is an easy dinner, perfect for a Friday night.  Enjoy! 

Pizza Dough (I used Pillsbury ready made dough)
Pepperoni (1/2 cup)
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (2/3 cup)
Italian Spices 
**any other toppings you desire**


1.  Unroll dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  

2.  Pile your toppings down the middle of the dough.  

3.  Pour cheese over toppings.  

4.  Cut the edges of the dough.  I used a smooth knife, you can also use kitchen scissors. 

5.  Fold edges over the center.  I started at the top and folded in a downward slant.  

6. Pour 2 tbs EVOO into a small bowl.  Add spices.  I added basil, oregano and garlic salt.  

7.  Brush mixture over the dough.  

8.  Bake at the temp and for the amount of time directed on the dough. I think mine was 375 for about 12-15 minutes.  


  1. That looks so good! Stromboli's only have mozzarella cheese and calzones have ricotta.

  2. goodness gracious, I need this in my belly NOW!
