  • Saute chicken, onion, garlic and zucchini in a large non stick fry pan until no pink remains in chicken and liquid is evaporated.

    Very yummy recipe. My 11 year old made the bread dough while I cooked the filling. The kids ate it up! I used some elk sausage we had on hand for the meat, and broccoli. Everything worked very well together and was very good leftovers as well.

    This was a pretty good recipe! Like another reviewer, I used some spaghetti sauce that needed to be used. I also cut out the meat and used only parmesan cheese. It was a nice, quick dough, though next time I will probably add some garlic or onion powder to the dough for more flavor. Thanks for a great healthy recipe!

    This was fantastic!! I was thrilled to be making pizza calzone for the first time, and have it turn out beyond expectations. I cut down on the mozarella cheese a little and doubled the garlic but other than that, I followed this recipe as written. My 3 year old who is very fussy asked for seconds so this is definitely a winner.

    "The only thing that would be better is if it were fried... but this is probably healthier." -My husband. I did mostly follow the directions, used broccoli. I exchanged some of the AP flour for some buckwheat flour only because it needed to get used. VERY tasty.
