Broccoli and Cheese Calzones
One pound of pizza dough
One bag of frozen broccoli crowns defrosted.
4 cloves chopped garlic
6 tablespoons olive oil
One teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Four slices provolone cheese cut in half
Four slices Muenster cheese cut in half
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
Grease a pizza pan with crisco
Set on the side.
Heat the olive oil and brown the garlic.
Add the defrosted broccoli and stir fry for three to four minutes
Add the salt and pepper.
Taste to see if you would like more salt.
Cut the dough into 8 pieces,
Flatten each piece into a thin disc.
Place one half a slice of the provolone and Muenster cheese on each piece of dough.
Top with the broccoli.
Fold over like a turnover making sure it is sealed and place on the pizza pan.
Make sure you use all the broccoli in the eight calzones because you want a full calzone so stretch the dough a little.
Believe me it works and the calzone will be nice and full.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until they are nice and brown.
My family likes them a little light and underdone.
I’ll eat them anyway they come out because I love them.
