Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 package yeast
  • 1 cup spaghetti or pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 40 pepperonis
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Couple shakes of garlic salt
  • Fresh fruit - 4 clementines and 1/4 cantaloupe

Instructions

  • Place the first 9 ingredients into bread machine on dough cycle.
  • Once the dough cycle is complete, place the dough on a clean, floured surface.
  • Knead into a ball.
  • Divide the dough into 2 balls.
  • Further divide into 4 balls.
  • And divide one more time into 8 little dough balls. (From here, I took 2 of these dough balls and made them into 4, so that I could make “mini-calzones” for the boys.)
  • Roll out the dough balls into rectangular-oval-ish shapes. Place onto greased baking sheets.
  • Place a few pepperonis onto one half of the dough.
  • Top with some sauce, cheese and more pepperonis. (I made cheese-y ones for Steve, and dairy-free ones for the rest of us!)
  • Fold the other half over.
  • Pinch the edges together.
  • And mash the edges together with a fork. (This step is not necessary, but I like to do it to prevent the sauce from leaking out!)
  • Brush the top with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle garlic salt on top.
  • Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
  • Serve Pepperoni Calzones with Fresh Fruit.
