These delicious homemade calzones taste better than the ones you get in restaurants and are actually very easy to make. The ingredients I use is my preferred toppings but you can customize each calzone to suit your taste adding toppings of choice. Try it with my homemade pizza dough and no bake pizza sauce recipe for best results. This recipe makes 2 very large calzones so bring your appetite!
