    HeatherFeather's Note:

    Variation on a Robin Miller recipe. She used steamed broccoli and no garlic in hers. You can use any vegetables (roasted or raw) you like or cooked meat (pepperoni, sausage, etc). When I made this, I actually used two cans of Pillsbury pizza dough (about 13.5 ounces each) and divided the filling to make one veggie calzone and one pepperoni calzone.

      We used Pillsbury pizza dough. Quick and easy. The versatility of it and what you can add is nice too. My four year old and one year old approved as well.

      This was really good. I used the Pillsbury pizza dough and added a few seasonings to the cheese filling such as parsley and garlic powder. These were so easy and so tasty! Made for PAC Spring 2007.
