Calzones Anyone?

These are not low-Carb, but I just got so excited to see how they would turn out I had to try them. They are about 54 - 60 Carbs per Calzone, but they are big.

Start with Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheet. Cut in half so you can make 2 Calzones with one sheet. Preheat oven to 375*.

Add fillings: Spoon on some Prego Roasted Garlic & Parmesan sauce (or your preference). Sprinkle on a layer of shredded Mozzarella cheese. Add a layer of grilled chicken and sausage. We also added little broccoli on our second attempt.

Fold one end over and press sides all around with a fork to seal the dough. Melt 2 Tablespoons butter (or seasoned butter, like garlic butter or basil/pesto butter) in the microwave for 30 seconds. Brush melted butter on the top of the folded dough before baking. Use about 1 Tablespoon per Calzone. Bake at 375* for 14 - 16 minutes until brown and crispy around the edges.

And...enjoy! Be creative to fill your Calzone with whatever flavors you want. Think about pizza toppings and your favorite pizza. Just do a layer for each topping. You don't want to fill it too full or your cheese won't melt.
