Artisan in Five Calzoni

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Here I go again, raving about Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day. I just can’t get enough! We had the dough in the fridge, so we decided to try calzoni this time. Of course they were amazing!

I made a veggie spinach calzone with just a little cheese and my homemade sauce, it was very tasty! I loved the nice crusty calzone. Josh wanted his “man meat,” so he cooked up some sausage with fennel and added roasted peppers and he always loads on the cheese:)
We were both pleased with our calzoni. They were so easy to make and it was fun making our own. They were huge so we had leftovers for lunch. Oh wait, I had leftovers for lunch, Joshua ate the entire thing. He REALLY enjoyed his:) I forgot to take photos of the veggie calzone. Sorry! I promise it was good.

  1. WOW! How wonderful do these look!! Love this cookbook also, youd think Id try something out of it by now!

  2. YUM! hahaha- love how much men can eat 😉 Yours sounds great with tons of veggies and just a little cheese- exactly how I like it!

    So my grandma (the sweets queen) LOVED your cookies. I think she asked me to email her the recipe 5 times 🙂 My mom also ate TWO cookies- my mom NEVER eats sweets 🙂

  3. Ooh, that looks good. We make pizza all the time (pretty much weekly), but I never think to make calzones instead. I’ll have to keep it in mind. I love ABin5, too. My current batch is based on the buttermilk bread recipe, but I didn’t have buttermilk, so I used yogurt instead. It’s pretty tasty. I’m thinking of using the last of it to make your monkey bread muffins. =)

  4. I did just buy this book from amazon and have been checking the mail every day. Maybe today! I can’t wait to bury myself in that calzone!!!!

  5. This man meat calzone looks great and yours sounds delicious! I’d love to make calzones at home. I’m going to have to check out this book now!
