Tips to make the best homemade calzone recipe:

I have made about three large calzones for the dough I have taken, you may also create 6 to 7 mini calzones, depends on how you serve.

I brushed olive oil on top, you may also egg wash to get a nice golden color.

Always cook the veggies or any meats before you stuff into the calzone.
