Pie Iron Pizza Calzone Recipe
- Pre-Made Pizza Crust Dough (I used Pillsbury Pizza Crust in a roll)
- Hunt’s Pizza Sauce
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Can of Diced Tomatoes
- Start by lining your pie iron with a healthy dose of cooking spray to make sure you can get your calzone out of your iron when it’s done (we use olive oil for all of our cast iron pie irons).
- Line both sides of the pie iron with your pizza dough. Remember that the dough will rise quite a bit so make sure not to put it in too thick, I did about 1/8 thick or less and it rose perfectly.
- Place all of your ingredients on only one side of the iron such as the sauce, pepperonis and cheese. Remember that you will have to place one side of the iron down onto the other side and you don’t want your food falling out.
- Lock up your pie iron and place over a low flame coal bed in your fire pit. I lay mine directly in the coals.
- Flip the iron often and even take it out of the coals for a few minutes to make sure you don’t develop hot spots in the pie iron and burn your crust.
- Cook for 5-10 minutes depending on your fire. Check often, after about 3-4 minutes you should be able to crack the iron open to check on the calzone. I like to cook mine to a golden brown like a marsh mellow.
