Calzone with Broccoli and Prosciutto

Calzones are so fun to make at home! Just like pizza, you can use any topping and ingredients you have on hand to make a delicious and filling dinner. Calzones from restaurants are not very healthy, but I'm never one to give up a yummy food for this reason. I just make them at home! This version is packed with broccoli, onions, garlic and Italian prosciutto. Have fun with the ingredients, just about anything tastes awesome when it's wrapped up in pizza dough!

Calzone with Broccoli and Prosciutto
Yummy ingredients wrapped up in an pizza dough package and baked!
Makes 2 big calzones

1 tube refrigerated pizza dough, such as Pillsbury
1 cup broccoli florets
1/2 red onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 thin slices of prosciutto, ham or Canadian bacon, chopped
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
1 tsp dried Italian herbs
Extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and pepper

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out pizza dough and cut in half to make two squares. Combine veggies, meat, pizza sauce, cheese and herbs in a bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place half of filling on the bottom half of each dough square. Fold top half of dough over toppings and press to seal all around.

Brush calzones with olive oil and poke a few holes in it with a fork. Place on a baking sheet in oven and cook for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with extra Parmesan cheese, cut in half and serve with extra pizza sauce.
