Dessert Calzones




Whether you have leftover pizza dough or make a double batch when making grilled pizzas, a great way to use it is to make dessert calzones!

I made a S’mores calzone and a Banana-Nutella one, but you can fill them with anything you like!

 Dessert Calzones  (click here to print recipe without pictures)

1/2 of single batch pizza dough (see Grilled Pizza for recipe), divided into 2 pieces
1/2 banana, sliced
2 tbsp Nutella
2 marshmallows, cut into quarters
8 pieces of chocolate bar (I use Ghiardelli semi-sweet bar)
coarse salt for sprinkling
powdered sugar for dusting

1. Preheat oven to highest temp possible (500 degrees F on my oven). Place oven rack on highest location. If using pizza stone, place stone on rack. If not, prepare baking sheet with parchment paper and dust with cornmeal. Dust pizza peel with cornmeal.

2. Shape each dough into 6-in round and place on prepared baking sheet or pizza peel.

3. Fill bottom half of 1 round with Nutella, banana slices and a sprinkle of coarse salt, keeping 1/2-in from edge clear. Fold top half over and pinch the edges together, making sure there are no holes (or the chocolate with seep out). Repeat with the other dough with the marshmallows, chocolate and a sprinkling of coarse salt.

4. Bake for 10-15, until golden brown. Let cool on wire rack for 5 min, then dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!! (be careful though, the melted chocolate is hot!)
