What’s The Best Pizza Dough for Calzones?

Store-bought or homemade dough works just fine! There are days when I feel like making my easy Vegan Garlic & Herb Pizza Dough Recipe , and some days when I go into my local pizza place and get some dough to go. Most pizza places will wrap some up for you (our local pizzeria gives it to me for free) even if it’s not on the menu. Just ask at the counter for some dough to take home, and make sure it sits out for at least an hour at room temperature before rolling into your calzones. If you are gluten free, then make sure you use a gluten free pizza dough mix like this one.

Grilled Calzone Recipes for the WIN

The instructions below are for calzones that can be grilled or baked… either turns out delicious! If you do grill the calzones, make sure you have a pizza stone that you can grill them on. The calzones shouldn’t be cooked directly on a grate.

How Do I Grill a Calzone?

  1. Divide your pizza dough into half. Make sure your dough sits out at room temperature for at least an hour before rolling so it can rise.
  2. Roll each piece of the pizza dough into a 12-inch circle. To each pizza add 1/2 cup the pizza sauce on top of the dough. Divide the pizza in half with your eyes, add the topping to one half of the pizza: I used mushrooms, bell pepper, onions, olives, and pineapple. Add the cheese on top.
  3. To the other half of the pizza that has no toppings on it, fold the dough over the toppings to create a half moon. Use your fingers or a fork to crease the edges of the calzone so the toppings will not fall out while the calzone cooks.
  4. With a knife, poke 3-4 holes or make small 1-inch slits on the top of the calzone so steam can escape while it cooks. Brush the top with olive oil and add a sprinkle of Italian Seasoning if desired.
  5. If grilling on a pizza stone: Grill for 10 minutes, flip, and grill for another 10 minutes until crust begins to lightly brown.
  6. If baking: Bake the calzones at 425 for about 15-20 minutes until the crust has browned.
