I didnt care for this , the calzones turned out very soggy. Im will not make this again and it also seemed that it would not make a great item to pack in a lunch box due to its sogginess.

We really liked this. I was browsing trying to find something that would be good for after school snacks. This is perfect.

Very good! I basically followed the recipe, adding in some diced pepperoni & minced onions, and leaving out the green peppers. Next time I might add some seasonings to the crust, or maybe use homemade, as it was a bit bland- but that obviously will depend on what brand of premade crust you buy. I didn't think the baking time seemed long enough, but it actually was- mine were done in nine minutes. Three adults and one preschooler all enjoyed these- thanks for sharing!
