Hawaiian Calzone

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Shuzbud

This makes a really nice change from pizza. The classic ham and pineapple combination works beautifully here.

Top Review by Chocolatl

This is wonderful. The cool, sweet taste of the pineapple made a delicious contrast to the saltiness of the ham and cheese. Next time, I would bake it a little longer to cook the dough more thoroughly, and I would cut up the ham instead of using slices. Extremely filling, and a great change from the same old same old. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT Witchin Kitchen Antarctica challenge.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (10 ounce) packagedry pizza dough mix
  • 1 cup ham, cubed or sliced
  • 1 12 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 12 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 12 cups pineapple, cubed
  • 1 egg

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F or 180°C.
  2. Prepare the pizza base as directed on the packet.
  3. While it rises, cut the pineapple chunks into smaller pieces if you are using canned pineapple chunks.
  4. In a bowl, combine the pineapple with the ham and cheese.
  5. When it has risen, divide the pizza dough into four even portions. On a floured surface, roll each piece into an 8-inch round.
  6. Beat the egg and brush the edge of each base with beaten egg.
  7. Spread pizza sauce over each base. Top with even portions of the filling over half of each round.
  8. Fold over the dough and press the eggy edges gently to seal.
  9. Crimp the edges of each calzone to thoroughly seal (I like to roll the edges as you would for a Cornish pasty).
  10. Brush each calzone with beaten egg.
  11. Lay the calzones carefully on a greased pan and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden and cooked through.
