Are you getting ready to host a football party? Need some snacks to serve? Or are you just looking for a fun twist for an otherwise boring weeknight meal? Try these mini calzones!
Start off with 1 cup of ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, and 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese. Mix them all together.
Then open one 10-ounce tube of refrigerated biscuits. Split the biscuits in half so you have twice as many thinner biscuits (this is a little easier if you use flaky biscuits). With your fingers, stretch each biscuit out into an oval shape. Top each one with a few slices of pepperoni (or your favorite pizza topping). Be sure your toppings are slightly off center, because we will be folding these over to make pockets in just a minute!
Arrange all your mini calzones on a lightly greased baking sheet (or an ungreased baking stone). Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until the calzones are golden brown. Serve with a side of pizza sauce, or another favorite dipping sauce!
