Diced turkey and melted cheese, baked inside a pizza crust.

Yummy Ham & Cheese Calzones from Cosmopolitan Cornbread

Turkey & Cheddar Calzones are delicious and portable! I make variations of these for occasions where we need “food to go” like our ice fishing trip this past January.

To begin, you’ll need pizza dough for one large pizza. You can use whatever kind you like. Here’s a recipe for yeast-free pizza crust.

I also have a traditional yeast pizza dough recipe which you can find HERE.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Dice about 2 cups of smoked turkey deli meat. I just ask at the deli counter for a 1/2 inch thick piece, rather than sliced turkey.

Roll out a sixth of your pizza dough into a disk that is about 8 inches.

Top with a third of a cup of the diced turkey and about a quarter cup of shredded cheddar cheese. You can use Swiss, cheddar, or any other that you like. **You can also try adding some diced broccoli in here.

Fold the dough over leaving about 1/2 inch of the bottom layer sticking out. Fold the bottom up and over the top edge and press them together to seal. Repeat with the rest, making 6 calzones.

Beat an egg with a tablespoon of water until frothy. Brush the tops of the calzones with the egg wash.

With a knife or kitchen shears, cut a little slit in the top of each.

Sprinkle a little extra cheese on top.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until nice and golden.
