Michele Ardizzone


This is another family favorite passed down from my Nan's recipes. It is a little time consuming. But the end result is worth it.

How to Make Mini Calzones


  1. cut mozzarella to a small dice
  2. in a large bowl combine all cheeses with salt and pepper
  3. open first 2 tubes, cover in flour
  4. You are going to make each calzone one at a time. I have a tray with wax paper and sprinkled with flour on hand to place each calzone.
  5. With a rolling pin roll out a biscuit have flour on hand to flour surface and rolling pin.
  6. take a heaping tablespoon of cheese mixture and place in center, fold over so that it looks like a half moon shape. Pinch ends with finger or fork (I find a fork works best)
  7. Once you have filled 20. preheat oil in large frying pan You just need enough oil to cover they are not deep fried. Lightly fry on each side. Place on a baking sheet covered in paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  8. *** you can add other ingredients to cheese mixture like ham, cooked meatballs, & chopped pepperoni.
