How to Make Kidz Mini Pizza Calzones

  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  3. Divide dough into eight pieces. Roll each dough piece into a 3 inch circle. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce over the dough. Spoon sausage mixture equally over half of each circle leaving a 1/2 inch border. Top equally with pepperoni and cheese, or whatever other ingredients you desire.
  4. Fold dough over filling until edges almost meet. Bring bottom edges over top edges and crimp dough with fingers to for rim. Prick tops of calzones with fork to allow steam to escape. Place on large baking sheet covered with foil and sprayed with non stick spray.
  5. Whisk melted butter, Italian dressing and mustard together until incorporated. Using a pastry brush, brush the tops of the calzones with butter mixture until calzone is well coated.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve with warm marinara sauce.
