BBQ Pizza Calzone

Calzone – A baked or fried Italian turnover of pizza dough filled with vegetables, meat, or cheese

I just received my new issue of Better Homes and Gardens –

And I saw this recipe –

This looked good … but I had another idea in mind.  I love BBQ Chicken pizza with BBQ Sauce, Red Onions, cheese, BBQ Chicken (of course) and some cilantro… so I changed this recipe into my own –

First I started BBQing a couple of Chicken Breasts and got my red onions on the stove to saute.  (I use a little bit of butter to saute my onions- not shown in this picture)

Next chop your cilantro and tomatoes –

Use your favorite BBQ Sauce.  My favorite is Sweet Baby Rays.

Have a cookie sheet with some parchment paper ready to go as well.

The shredded chicken and sauteed onions are ready to go!

On a separate cutting board, I put down a little bit of flour to make sure the pizza dough didn’t stick.

I used the Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust – (You can find this in the bisquit / cheese area of your market)

I spread the dough out a bit.  The recipe said 4×6″ pieces.

I spread some BBQ Sauce and layered my ingredients.

I then pinched the two sides together –

Kinda Skinny :-/

My third one was fatter ..

Baked at 375 for about 20 minutes.  I then spread some BBQ sauce over the top and added some fresh tomatoes for the last five minutes.

The only thing I would do different is to add more cheese, otherwise, very tasty!
