These Caprese Calzones came about by happy coincidence when I realized that I was out of the pepperoni intended for the pizza dough sitting in my fridge. In an inspired moment of fridge-diving, I combined some of my favorite antipasti snacks together and wrapped them up in that pizza dough. The result was simply fantastic!

Since that first time, I’ve made these calzones a variety of different ways – we’ve added a couple slices of grilled chicken breast for a meatier meal or some pepperoni for a spicy note, we’ve cut the pizza dough into smaller squares for the perfect hand held meal and leftover lunch for the kids… the beauty of these delicious calzones is in the personalization and simplicity!

Here is the simple recipe:
