Making Homemade Calzone is easy if you have some experience cooking pizza. The dough should be soft and easily handled. Roll out the dough into large circles (about eight inches), place the filling in the center, and fold over. Crimp together the edges using a fork. Transfer each rolled calzone to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the topped pies for about 15 minutes. Then, remove from the oven.

To make the calzones, divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. On one half of the circle, spread some pasta sauce. Then, put some cheese and sausage mixture on the other half. Fold the dough into a semi-circle shape. Next, use the tines of a fork to press the edges of the calzone dough. Repeat the process with remaining dough. After the layered pies are baked, sprinkle with shredded parmesan.

Bake the calzones for around fifteen to twenty minutes. The baking time depends on the type of dough. Once baked, top them with your favorite toppings and serve with sauce of choice. Let them cool for a few minutes before serving. A few slices of fresh basil leaves and some Parmesan cheese will make a delicious homemade calzone. There you have it, a delicious and easy-to-make pizza!

To make the calzones, you can purchase a pizza dough if you’d like and use it to make them at home. Simply roll it out on a floured surface. Then, fill the calzone with your favorite toppings. Then, bake the resulting calzones until golden and enjoy! If you’re entertaining, you can serve the homemade calzones warm or at room temperature.

To make a homemade calzone, you can use a pizza dough that you’ve bought or made yourself. The dough should be about a quarter of an inch thick. It can be filled with your favorite toppings, or you can create a healthy meal by incorporating vegetables and meats from your favorite foods. If you’re feeling adventurous, try making a home-made calzone and adding fresh veggies to it. Once it’s ready, you’ll be able to enjoy a homemade calzone anytime you want!

If you don’t want to bake your calzone right away, you can store it in the fridge for up to three days. To reheat, simply microwave it for about twenty minutes and it will stay crispy. If you have leftovers, you can freeze them for up to 3 months. Just be sure to reheat them before serving to make them last longer. There are many other ways to make Homemade calzone.
