Ingredients

  • 12 frozen rolls or pizza dough
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 TBSP milk
  • 1 ½ cups diced ham
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg white
  • Dried parsley, Sea Salt, or Sesame Seeds Optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Whisk eggs and add milk. Cook them in a greased skillet over medium heat, stirring to scramble until they are cooked.
  • You can either use a rolling pin or your fingers to flatten rolls into flat disks. I rolled mine out to about 5-6 inches in diameter.
  • Evenly divide eggs and spoon them over half of each piece of dough.
  • Evenly divide diced ham and grated cheese and place over eggs.
  • Fold half of the dough over the fillings and press to seal. Use your fingers or a fork to crimp.
  • Place on baking sheet either greased with nonstick spray or lined with parchment paper. Brush tops of calzones with beaten egg white. Sprinkle with parsley flakes, sea salt, parmesan cheese, or sesame seeds. You can get creative here and use whatever you like!
  • Bake calzones for 15 minutes.
  • Serve immediately or see notes below for freezing.

Notes

Freezing Calzones - Calzones can be frozen for up to three months in an airtight container. Flash freeze them for 20 minutes on a baking sheet then move to the airtight container or freezer bag. Frozen calzones can either be thawed in the refrigerator or in the micowave.
Refrigerating Calzones - Keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days. 
Reheating Calzones - Heat frozen calzones for 1 minute, flip and repeat. If needed continue cooking in 30 second intervals until heated through. Reheat refrigerated calzones by microwaving for 1 minute on high. Check to see if it's hot. Continue reheating in 30 second increments until heated through.
Variations - Get creative with ingredients used to put inside the calzones! 
Quantity - It's easy to adjust this recipe to make more or less calzones. I usually use one egg per calzone and guess on the cheese and ham!
