 A family favorite for dinner is fresh from the oven Calzones. I make my own dough and it is simple. I use the dough hook on my mixer and in a few minutes you have dough ready to rise. This dough recipe is perfect for pizza too. The recipe is from and you can find it here.

Above is the dough after rising for an hour.

Fresh from the oven.

This night we had sausage, pepper and cheese.

Those look delicious. Around here, we like to dip them in ranch dressing,or marinara sauce. What a great idea for dinner.

Looks very yummy!! When our girls were home Saturday night was pizza night and yes we did our own dough too --- nothing better!!
Now we are empty nesters we still do Saturday night pizza altho now our toppings are a wee bit more exotic.

Hi Elaine!
thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello!
I have seen your comments on my moms blog before. :)

Those calzones look fantastic!
I recently made calzones from my Trader Joe's cookbook for the first time and we all really liked them.

I signed up to follow you now! :)

We love calzones, and it's great way for me to get spinach or other greens into my 5 kids without anyone noticing or complaining.

I usually cook mine for 20 minutes, but mine don't look as brown as yours. I'm going to have to try cooking them for longer and see if my family likes them better.
