Recipe by weekend cooker

Prepared pie crusts, canned tomatoes, and frozen meatballs make short work of these tasty calzones.

These were very tasty and so easy to make! I did run about half of the tomatoes through the blender since DH doesn't like the "chunks" and there were still too make for him. Next time I will use a pizza or pasta sauce. I loved the pie crust for these, I liked how it got crispy/flaky. Made for Zaar Stars.
