Easy Italian Pizza Calzones

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Karen..

Not really a traditional calzone, as there is no ricotta cheese or pizza dough in this recipe, but a quick and easy dinner idea, nonetheless. Adapted from menus4moms.com.

These are very simple and made a great weeknight dinner! I made them with everything except the optional mushrooms. I love the crescent dinner rolls with this. Thanks for sharing!
