Homemade Calzones Using the 5 Minute Chef


Pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)

Pizza sauce

Shredded mozzarella cheese

Your favorite calzone fillings (e.g., pepperoni, cooked sausage, vegetables, etc.)

Olive oil (for brushing)


Preheat your 5 Minute Chef or similar cooking device.

Roll out the pizza dough into circles or rectangles, about the size of your 5 Minute Chef plates.

Place one piece of dough onto the bottom plate of the 5 Minute Chef.

Spread a layer of pizza sauce over the dough, leaving a border around the edges.

Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce.

Add your desired calzone fillings on one half of the dough.

Fold the other half of the dough over the fillings to create a half-moon shape.

Use a fork to press and seal the edges of the calzone.

Lightly brush the top of the calzone with olive oil.

Carefully place the calzone into the preheated 5 Minute Chef.

Close the lid and cook for about 5 minutes or until the calzone is golden brown and crispy.

Carefully remove the calzone from the 5 Minute Chef using a spatula.

Let it cool slightly before serving.
