Chicken and Two-Pepper Calzones

Prep time 30 mins
Yield Serves 4
You wouldn't think you could crank out 4 calzones in half an hour, but with store-bought dough, a little prechopped onion and green pepper from your market's salad bar or produce section, and a very hot oven, they're fast and delicious.


  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • About 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • 1 cup coarsely shredded unseasoned rotisserie chicken
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Divide dough into 4 pieces and set on a baking sheet rubbed with olive oil. Stretch each into a 6- to 7-in. circle. Divide remaining ingredients evenly among dough circles. Fold each circle over to form a half-moon and seal edges.

  2. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve with a green salad.
