Quick and delicious

I love my pre-fab food. There was talk yesterday on the What's Cooking board about calzones and I had to have some. However, I wasn't feeling adventurous enough to spend precious after work time attempting my first homemade pizza dough, so I bought a tube of the processed, preservative-laden kind from Super Target. Someday I'll get with it and stop wasting my money on stuff like this, but it sure hit the spot tonight :)

1 tube Refrigerated pizza dough
Tomato sauce
Italian seasoning
Garlic powder
Shredded mozzarella
Black olives
Green pepper
Olive oil

Unroll pizza dough and separate into two pieces. Spoon a few tablespoons of tomato sauce on one half of dough (alternatively, use pesto in place of tomato sauce). Season with Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Chop olives and pepper to desired size. Sprinkle cheese and vegetables over sauce. Fold over dough and pinch edges to contain toppings. Brush top of dough with olive oil, sprinkle additional cheese if desired. Bake according to dough instructions (mine said 13-18 minutes at 400°, they were nicely done at 18 minutes).

They may not be the prettiest, but this was a fun meal to make with my husband and tasty to boot :)

  1. That does sound good. I have a tube of Pillsbury crust in my fridge and I was about to make regular pizza, but maybe I'll make this instead....
