Dutch Oven – Pepperoni Calzone


The Back Porch Gourmet has had a secret admirer for some time. Our back neighbors have long been readers and finally contacted me about the blog. We put them on our guest list and we had them over for dinner tonight. Calzones have always been a favorite of mine, and I wanted to try some in a Dutch oven. This is a pretty easy dish that would be good camping too. Despite a small charcoal scare (they wouldn’t all light at first– don’t overfill a chimney, the ones on top will only light) we had no other problems cooking.

450 Degrees
12″ Dutch oven
45 minutes

2 cans ‘pop’ refrigerated pizza dough
tomato sauce
garlic, chopped
bread crumbs
mozzarella cheese
ham, diced
olives, sliced
mushrooms, chopped
butter, melted

Grease 12″ Dutch oven with oil. Roll pizza dough flat. Dust with bread crumbs and press into dough on both sides. Spread tomato sauce and garlic on dough with 1 inch border on all sides. Add pepperoni, cheese, ham, olives, and mushrooms to one side of calzone. Fold over and press edges. Repeat above steps until you have 2 calzones for each 12″ Dutch oven. Top with light layer of cheese. Place calzones in Dutch ovens and bake for 45 minutes until crust is golden brown.
