I made this last night for supper for the family last night. My family loved it. Since I don't have a bread machine I mixed the dough and let the dough raise in a bowl covered with a cloth and then punched it down and let it raise the second time. I followed the rest of the recipe. It was delicious.

This is a wonderful recipe.It was easy to prepare with fantastic results.I added capicoli and pepperoni along with sauteed onions and garlic. My family loved it and asked to make it a regular menu item. My 5 yr old daughter's response was " I'm gonna make this for my kids when I grow up yumm" Thank you for a great recipe!!!

feel like I should reserve judgement...wasn't crazy about it, but the bread was good. Would be worth trying again but I wasn't saying "mmm" or anything.

I made this dough and shaped it into 2 half moon calzones. I used the recipe for cheesesteak calzone for the filling idea.

I have never had Calzones before, I admit, but I found this recipe( it looked easy!). I found it to be very good! I do work with bread recipes, so I changed only a few things. I added 1 tblsp. oil, reduced the sugar to just a dash, added diastastic malt powder, and omitted the milk. It really was good. I'm sure the recipe is great as written, too!

These were very good! The only strayed from the dough recipe twice. I only had all-purpose flour so I used that and I didn't have any powdered milk so I omitted it. It still turned out great! The dough was a little sticky but not unworkable. Instead of making a braided calzone as pictured, I made 4 semi-circle calzones. I filled mine with pepperoni, mushrooms, cheese and sauce. Thanks for the recipe!

I used half the dough from this recipe for calzones, and used the other half to make a small loaf of bread to accompany another meal. Both were excellent! I didn't have powdered milk, so eliminated that without any apparent problem. I also used freshly minced garlic instead of garlic powder. Thanks for a terrific recipe!

This was pretty good. The dough was really sticky, but after reading other reviews, I added about 6-7 Tbsps. of flour during the kneading cycle in my bread machine. Then it worked out ok. I still had to flour the board like crazy when I rolled it out so it didn't stick to everything. I made 4 small calzones (baked for 30 min. at 375) and rolled the rest of the dough up into a little stromboli roll that I froze for later.

Very good recipe! I made the top like garlic bread by spreading butter and putting parm cheese and garlic powder/salt on at about the last 5-8 min. Thanks =)
