An Original Recipe

Crescent Calzones


  • 1 can crescent rolls (will yield 4 calzones)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 C jarred marinara sauce
  • 1 C shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 C packed spinach leaves
  • 12 slices pepperoni
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp Herbs de Provence
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp cornmeal


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Pinch together two crescent triangles to create a rectangle. Do this four times.
  3. Fill each rectangle with sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and spinach. Only do this on one half so you can fold over the remaining dough. With a fork, crimp the dough together. Cut a slit in the top of the dough with a sharp paring knife. Place calzones on a baking sheet sprinkled with corn meal – you could simply spray the sheet with non-stick cooking spray if you want. Note: you can substitute whatever protein/veggies you’d like. It’s a pizza – the limits are only in your pantry/fridge!
  4. Brush each calzone with olive oil. Sprinkle with seasoning and salt.
  5. Bake 12-15 minutes (or according to crescent directions).
