Calzone Rolls

Big pizza flavor comes through in these rolls, thanks to the peppers, mushrooms, olives and pepperoni. This recipe makes two pans of rolls, and you can make the dough in a bread machine. —Barb Downie, Peterborough, Ontario
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 20 min.
  • Makes
    2 dozen


  • 1-2/3 cups water (70° to 80°)
  • 2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup diced pepperoni
  • 1 cup shredded pizza cheese blend
  • 1/4 cup chopped ripe olives
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  • In bread machine pan, place the first 7 ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1-2 tablespoons water or flour if needed).
  • In a small skillet, saute the onion, mushrooms and peppers in oil until tender; cool.
  • When bread machine cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Let rest for 5 minutes. Roll each portion into a 16x10-in. rectangle; spread with pizza sauce. Top with the onion mixture, pepperoni, pizza cheese and olives. Roll up each rectangle jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut each into 12 slices (discard end pieces).
  • Place slices cut side down in 2 greased 10-in. cast-iron skillets or 9-in. round baking pans. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 375° until golden brown, 20-30 minutes. Serve warm.

To make dough without a bread machine, dissolve yeast in warm water (110°-115°). Add milk powder, sugar, shortening, salt and 3 cups flour. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Proceed with recipe as written.

    Can someone fix the recipe to include all of the instructions? The instructions to make the dough w/o a bread machine cover the instructions past #3.

    Has anyone tried these using frozen bread dough? Did you use a loaf per 9" pan?
