Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2 calzones

Ingredients

  • 1 roll refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 14 oz can beets, drained and diced (or 2 medium sized pre-roasted beets, diced)
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 3 oz goat cheese , crumbled
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1 egg , lightly beaten

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400↑8F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a frying pan on medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove from pan, pat off excess fat with a paper towel and then crumble. Set aside.
  • Roll out pizza dough and cut in half. Gently stretch into rectangles and place on the baking sheet.
  • Over one half of each rectangle spread mozzarella, beets, bacon crumbles, goat cheese and dill leaving 1/2 inch of space around the edges. Fold over dough and press together the edges with fingertips, or press down with a fork.
  • Brush lightly beaten egg over the top of each calzone. Then make 3-4 slits on top to allow for venting.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until tops are golden and dough is fully cooked. Cut in half to serve, and enjoy.
