Calzones, yum.  The perfect alternative to your normal pizza night.  This was a fabulous way to spend our Friday night: march madness, goose island 312, and calzones!  These are so easy to make and you can choose your fillings for whatever you like.  I got the idea from Kevin and Amanda here.

You start with 1 can refrigerated pizza dough (sold next to the biscuits).  Unroll and lay out the pizza dough flat.  Cut in half (this recipe serves two).  Spread your pizza sauce over one side leaving about one inch of room on the sides to close.  Fill with whatever toppings you would like, but remember you it has to be able to close!  We used pepperoni, diced onion, tomato, green and red pepper, and mushrooms.  Then top with cheese.  Fold empty half over and pinch edges to close.  Melt one tablespoon of butter and brush tops with butter then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and other pizza or italian seasonings you would like.

Cook in a 375 preheated oven for 13-15 minutes until golden brown.  They will smell amazing!  Serve with additional Parmesan and pizza sauce for dipping!
