Calzones to the dinner rescue! The broccoli here is precooked, meaning you won’t end up with tough little trees up inside their pizza-dough balloons. Add sauce and cheese, then act like you’re in art class when you seal, crimp, and twist the calzones into half-moons ready for baking.
1 (10-ounce) package frozen broccoli florets, fully thawed
1 pound store-bought pizza dough, thawed and ready for action if frozen
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
½ cup finely grated Parm
1 cup store-bought marinara sauce
½ teaspoon chili flakes
¼ cup chopped fresh basil
+ extra virgin olive oil, for brushing
+ kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
+ all-purpose flour, for rolling
+ prepared pesto, for serving
A gourdgeous pizza to add to your weeknight rotation.
A nacho by any other name is still as great.
