Buffalo Chicken Calzone

Chicken + cheese + hot sauce = our favorite. I found this on the WC board on Ellen's Edibles Blog. It was super easy to make and especially DELICIOUS!!


* 1 lb ground chicken (we used ground turkey b/c the store was out of ground chicken)
* Chicken seasoning to taste (we used Weber's Kickin' Chicken)
* Ground pepper to taste
* 6 oz. reduced fat cream cheese (we used fat free)
* 3/4 cup hot wing sauce (we used Frank's)
* Frozen onion/celery mix to taste (we omitted)
* 1 handful shredded mozzarella cheese or to taste
* 1 handful shredded cheddar cheese or to taste (we omitted)
* 1 refrigerated pizza dough
* Ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing for dipping


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Put jelly roll pan or pizza stone in oven to warm.
2. Brown chicken and frozen onions/celery. Drain fat and add poultry seasoning, ground pepper and cream cheese. Stir until cream cheese melts. Add wing sauce. Simmer until sauce is slightly reduced. Remove from heat.
3. On a piece of parchment paper, roll out pizza dough.
4. Sprinkle cheese over dough, then spread slightly cooled chicken mixture over half (long ways) of the dough. Roll the dough long ways and seal the dough at the seam. Helpful hint: rather than trying to pull the dough from the parchment as you roll it, lift the parchment long ways so that the entire piece of dough rolls at once without breaking.
5. Cut slices on top of the dough with a knife so steam can escape. Spray lightly with olive oil, or brush dough with an egg wash.
6. Put calzone with parchment on the hot jelly roll pan and bake for 17-20 minutes, or until brown.
7. Once out of the oven, let calzone rest for a few minutes and slice into generous diagonal pieces. Serve with dipping sauce.
