Kale and Cheese Calzone

Kale and Cheese Calzone

I had some kale that I had to use up so a calzone is always a great option.

My Mom use to put any leftover in dough and it was fabulous.

One pound pizza dough

One large box of fresh kale

 4 cloves of chopped garlic 1/4 tsp. garlic powder

2 tablespoons oil

 salt and red pepper to taste

2 slices American cheese

2 slices provolone cheese

2 slices swiss cheese

2 slices muenster cheese

2 slices mozzarella cheese

Saute the garlic in the oil ill soft.

Add the kale and just cook till soft

Season with the salt, pepper and garlic powder

Drain off the liquid. If you don’t the dough will be very soggy

Roll out the dough to a nice 8×10 rectangle.

Layer the cheeses, leaving a least 2 inches at the edges

Add the kale

Start rolling the dough like an egg roll.

Turn in the side edges as you roll 

 Place the dough on a pan, that has been greased with a thin layer of crisco.

Make sure you place the calzone seam side down.

Bake in a 450 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until nice and brown.

I served this with a side of marinara sauce.

It disappeared. I should have made at least two.
