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.
