This is a good calzone recipe. My only problem is that it doesn't seem like there was enough pepperoni in them although I doubled the amount that was called for in the recipe. When I made them they seemed stuffed with filling but after baking the biscuit dough puffs up a lot. I think kids would enjoy them. Made for Please Review My Recipe cooking tag game.

We just didn't find these to be very tasty. I will try them again with regular pizza/bread dough instead of the biscuits. It was very time-consuming to roll all the dough out and put those together. I think I'll try them a bit bigger next time. I had fun trying the recipe though!

This is such a tasty and fast snack. The family loved them. Thanks for posting. I had some pepperoni and cheese leftover and made a tortilla pizza.
