Pulled Pork Calzones

Pulled Pork Calzones

I can’t take all the credit for this idea, my husband came up with it but now it has become a favorite in our house because they are sooo good! You will not be disappointed, all you need is some pulled pork to start you off. You can find the recipe for my version here.

Ingredients:

4 cups pulled pork ( I do about a cup of meat per calzone)

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 large round of pizza dough

1 cup BBQ sauce (see here)

 

Instructions:

1) Preheat oven to 500 degrees. I use a pizza stone for this, if you do not have one then a baking sheet should be OK. Make sure the stone is in the oven while it’s pre-heating.

2) Split the dough into 1/4’s and start working it flat with flour, your hands and a rolling pin. Try to make them as flat as you can.

3) When ready, put a small layer of cheese on one side of the dough and then cover with about a cup of pork. Drizzle some BBQ sauce on top.

4) Fold over and pinch closed.

5) Repeat 2-4 until you have all the calzones done and put in oven for 10-15 minutes depending on how well done you want them.

6) Remove from oven and let cool before eating.

  1. This is a great, “different” idea for a calzone! I love calzones but I’ve only ever had a traditional cheese-and-sauce one, so this is a fun idea for me. Hubby and I tried pulled pork at a party several years ago and really enjoyed it, but I had no clue how to make it — now I do, thanks to your link! I’ll definitely be giving these a shot! 🙂

  2. Pulled pork is a weakness of mine. I never considered it in a calzone. If I had proper emoticons available on here, I’d put a girls face next to a gust of wind indicating that my mind was just blown:)

    LOVE IT!

    (p.s. HAPPY SITS DAY!)
