Calzones -- Saturday Night's Special
This evening one of my sons and my daughter were here for dinner and they decided they wanted to order "pizza out". Hubby and both of them got calzones from "Mellow Mushroom"...a local pizza place. While hubby went to pick it up, I proceeded to make myself a pizza so it would be ready by the time he got back (it took them 40 minutes to make). I decided to make myself another white pizza like I made this past week since it was so good (filled with provolone, mozzarella, Parmesan, diced pepperoni and roasted tomatoes). As I was spreading the crust out and topping it, I decided to go ahead and convert it into a calzone by using the parchment paper to flip it over and gently tease the top half of the dough off of my parchment paper and pat it into place. It turned out great and I had the exact same meal that they did...only mine was grain free (and better)! I snapped a quick photo for you to see. I love being able to go "toe to toe" with them on the kind of things most think are impossible to enjoy once you go grain free. I refuse to feel deprived or left out. Enjoy!
