"Delicious! I made these for my parents and family of 6. I used my breadmaker to make calzone dough. Besides the pepperoni filling, we also did pineapple & Canadian bacon. We will be making these a lot!"

"Made these as part of our Superbowl spread. They were super easy to do, and tasted GREAT! We made some plain pepperoni ones, and added other pizza topping ingredients to others. It was ridiculous; we couldn't stop eating them, regardless of how full we were."

"I made these for dinner this week and they were delicious! They were very easy to prepare and very family friendly, my kids loved them! I am a sucker for bread and the kids love pizza so it was a great combination. I used Rhodes frozen bread dough and turkey pepperoni and prepared the recipe as directed. This is certainly a recipe we will be making again!"
