I love pizza, lasagna, calzone's and everything Italian. I have looked at different recipe's and decided to do my own since I want something more then just the meat, cheese and mushroom calzone. I will warn you that this is time consuming but well worth it and will also feed an army. You can half the recipe, I just love to make more so I can share with friends and family. Hope you enjoy!

How To Make combination calzone

  • 1
    Start dough, I use my bread machine and this is why this recipe is time consuming. Make sure you use the dough setting. If you want you can use a premade dough from your grocery store.
  • 2
    Brown meat, drain and put in a large enough mixing bowl to hold all the ingredients for the filling.
  • 3
    Saute to just tender: bell peppers, onion, eggplant, squash, carrot and parsnip. Once done add to mixing bowl with the meat.
  • 4
    Add the rest of the ingredients for the filling to the bowl and mix together.
  • 5
    In a separate bowl mix together the cheese layer.
  • 6
    Once dough is done cut into 4 equal parts and roll each one out to a medium sized pizza round. Take 1/4 of your cheese layer and spread on half of the pizza and then pile on the meat/vegetable mix. Using one of the jars of Marinara sauce, spoon 4-5 spoonfuls over top and then carefully stretch the dough over and crimp edges.
  • 7
    Place on a greased baking sheet, pizza pan or stone. Whatever you prefer. Let rise in a warm place for 20-25 minutes.
  • 8
    Bake at 400 for 25 minutes.
  • 9
    Heat your marinara sauce in a sauce pan and serve over the top with Parmesan cheese.
