Philly Cheesesteak Calzones Recipe @pinch

These hearty calzones are a must-try for any fan of traditional Philly cheesesteaks! They're packed with all the ingredients you would normally have on a hoagie bun. Layers of roast beef, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and lots of cheese are inside baked pizza dough. Gooey, these calzones are meant to serve a hungry crowd. While we were moving into our new home, I whipped this up because we didn't have much to work with. Everything was still packed, so I had to find something easy but filling for dinner. My husband couldn't get enough, and the kids loved it! It's now a must-have every other Friday night at our house!

Intructions :

  • Then a layer of deli-sliced rare roast beef (approx. 1 lb).
  • Then a layer of onions
  • mushrooms
  • and green peppers.
  • Then a layer of sliced provolone cheese (approx. 12-15 slices).
  • Add salt and pepper and a light drizzle of olive oil. Make sure to spray the cookie sheet with cooking spray before cooking.
  • Once all the ingredients are there
  • pull the top edge up and over all the ingredients
  • and then do the same for the bottom edge
  • overlapping the flaps
  • and then tuck in the ends on each side so all the cheese doesn't ooze out while baking. Make sure to follow these steps for the second calzone as well.
  • Roll the calzone over so that the overlapped side is on the bottom while cooking. Over the top of the dough
  • slice three small holes to allow heat to evacuate through.
  • Brush the top of the dough with a light sheen of butter.
  • Put both calzones in the oven for approx. 30-35 min. or until the dough is a golden color.
  • Each calzone should be large enough to cut into three. Two calzones should feed a family of six. Serve with a side of mayo or your favorite condiment!
  • Please remember that all of the ingredients are to be split in half to make TWO Calzones.
