Zippy Calzones

My husband loves pizza and this is a fast alternative to the real thing. They're a great football game party snack, too, and always a hit.” Get the kids involved and let them pick out their own ingredients, such as, cooked ground beef, ham or black olives. Mary Addy - West Point, Nebraska

    This is quick, ease and delishious. I have made it several times & added different meats to it. I love the taste the cottage cheese gives it.

    Calzones are great because everyone can have their own filling. I also like a little pizza sauce in mine...or serve pizza sauce and/or ranch on the side for dipping!
