“Next time we go to a party, you’re bringing these!” That’s what my husband said after the first bite into these Mini Calzones. These mini bites of pizza have the perfect balance of flavor.
When these mini calzones came out of the oven, I was so impressed with the crispiness and flavor.
The pie crust used for the mini calzones is light and flaky so your calzones aren’t overly doughy.
