‘Italian’ Calzone

This classic calzone is super easy to make and tastes so good – these are always the first to go…  


  • 1 lb. bakery dough
  • 1/2 lb. boiled ham (I use Boar’s Head Deluxe Boiled Ham)
  • 1/4 lb. large slice pepperoni
  • 6 slices Genoa salami
  • Italian pepper salad (I use Troinos Gourmet Pepper Salad)
  • 1/4 lb. american cheese
  • 1/4 lb. mild provolone cheese
  • Parmesan cheese for topping


  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a 15 in. x 10 in. rectangle (about 1/4″ thick)
  • Place a row of provolone slices down the center of the rectangle
  • Top the cheese with a wide layer of ham (I use about 3 slices across)
  • Next place a layer of the pepper salad on the ham
  • Top that with the salami, then the pepperoni
  • Place a row of american cheese on top of the pepperoni
  • Pull one side of dough over the cheese and then overlap that by pulling the other side of dough over – fold up the ends and pinch to seal closed
  • Flip the calzone over and place seam side down on a greased baking sheet (I use Pam with Olive Oil) – brush the calzone with the oil from the pepper salad and top off with grated parmesan cheese
  • Bake in the oven at 350°F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown
