Recipe by Artandkitchen
READY IN: 35mins




  • Preheat the oven at 400°F.
  • Sauté garlic and red bell pepper, in olive oil, for about 3 minutes (just enough to "combine" the flavors). Put aside to cool.
  • In a bowl combine sun-dried tomatoes, thyme, chili and red pepper mixture. Toss until well mixed. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Unroll pizza dough onto clean work surface.
  • Pat out to 15x11-inch rectangle; cut in half lengthwise, then in half crosswise to form 4 rectangles.
  • Place the dough pieces on a floured surface.
  • Spread a 1/4 of the shredded chicken on one side of each dough piece. Be sure to leave 1/2 inch of the dough border free.
  • Place one slice of cheese over each portion.
  • Spread the vegetable mix over the cheese.
  • Add 3 leaves fresh basil to each calzone.
  • Brush the dough borders with little water and cover the filling with the dough (using the side without filling) and seal edges with fork.
  • Place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray and cook for about 20 minutes or as desired until golden brown/middle down.
  • Serve warm or cold as sandwiches.
