  1. Preheat oven to 410 degrees F (210 degrees C). Grease a pizza pan.
  2. Place chicken into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Cook the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a bowl and shred with two forks.
  3. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chicken and Buffalo wing sauce in the hot butter until chicken is coated and heated through, 2 to 4 minutes.
  4. Turn pizza dough out onto a generously floured surface. Roll dough into a 12-inch round. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and spread 1 cup mozzarella cheese in the center of the dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Spread chicken mixture over cheese; top chicken mixture with remaining 1 cup cheese.
  5. Fold pizza dough in half and pinch edges together to seal. Transfer calzone to prepared pizza pan and brush top with remaining 1 tablespoon oil.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown, 17 to 20 minutes.

I made this calzone for a New Year's Eve party and it was gone before any other item. I made it again the next night for my family and the neighborhood kids and they raved about it. To save time I bought a 2lb prepared chicken at the grocery store and shredded that. This recipe was super fast and super good. Thanks for this recipe - I'll be making it again!

This is good stuff! I followed the recipe, in spirit, w/a few minor tweaks based on what we had on hand. I used previously frozen (and thawed) pizza dough (Jay's Signature Pizza Crust from this site). We always keep shredded grilled chicken in the freezer, so I was able to simply heat the butter/Red Hot/chicken and eliminate the boil. Operating on rote, I sprayed and cornmealed the pan before spreading the dough (and liked the texture it added). After spreading the chicken over the base cheese, I squirted a bit of light ranch dressing, followed by the final cheese. I used Kraft's "Pizza Blend" shredded cheese, w/a bit of shredded white cheddar, too. This baked 20 minutes in our over, followed by a few minutes under broil to brown the top. Our one complaint, if you will, is it was quite salty (and I love salt). I'll search for a low sodium hot sauce to use next time. THANKS for the recipe!

Recipe Group Selection: 31, January 2015 ~ My DH and I really enjoyed this calzone. I changed my cooking method to baking the chicken, as Christina did. I baked the chicken the day ahead and reheated on the stove top with the butter and buffalo sauce. We like celery with our buffalo dishes, so I made half the calzone as written and the other half I added diced celery to the chicken mixture. When I make this again, I will add celery to all of it. This is very filling and lasted us for 2 dinners with enough leftover for DH lunch. Great recipe that I will make again. Served 'Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad' from AR with it.

This had great buffalo flavor and was so easy to put together. Especially if you cheat and use leftover grilled chicken! I used thin refrigerated pizza crust, which worked great. Obviously, a homemade crust would have taken this up a notch, but for a quick, easy meal, it was pretty tasty! Thanks for sharing this recipe, lukeybear2007!

Made for Recipe Group. I thought I had pizza dough, ended up with crescent sheet, so I used that. Worked out fine. Good taste, everyone liked it. I did add in some Ranch to the mix, only had mixed cheddar(thought I had the mozz too), and I used some previously baked shredded chicken I had in the freezer. Quick, easy, and tasty! Thanks for the recipe!

This was a great base recipe. The only changes I made were to add chopped red peppers on top of the chicken, then to drizzle ranch dressing over the top, then add the mozzarella cheese. Will definitely make again!
