"Once you try these mini calzones, you may never go back to fixing the large ones again! These calzones come together in a snap, and are a great way to sneak a few veggies into your kid's diet. The best part is they are small so it makes it easy for little hands to pick up and eat. Plus they taste like pizza and there's even a dipping sauce!"

grated Parmesan cheese
shredded mozzarella cheese
finely chopped fresh mushrooms
finely chopped green bell pepper
finely chopped onion
1 (8 ounce) can
refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 (14 ounce) jar
These were alright - I give them a 4 because the taste was there, it was just a little off IMO. I think using refridgerated pizza dough cut to size would make these much better - as to me, the cresent roll taste was what threw it off to me. I chose to saute the onions, peppers and mushrooms before adding it to the rest. Will try again - only use the pizza dough in place. Thanks!
Easy to make but they didn't blow me away. I would probably make them again.
It made twice the amount of filling that I needed. Use two crescent roll tubes in stead of one, or use the remaining filler and add it to the pizza sauce. I thought it was odd not sauteing the onions and mushrooms, and I also found it odd that no egg or tomato paste had been added as a binder. I added one tsp of garlic. You find yourself wanting to add more ingredients: black olives for instance, some fresh basil. But remember to use 2 tubes instead of one, because you'll have a lot of left-over filling. It took 18 minutes to cook. The flavor of the dough was bland. It would be better if dusted with onion and garlic powder. Powder, not salt. These are salty enough. It really needs the dipping sauce to add the tomatoey taste. Excellent recipe but had to give it 4 stars for the "woulda coulda shoulda's"
We really enjoyed this recipe! I think next time I'm going to saute the peppers and onions.
I used the basic idea here and made mine with spinach instead of pepperoni. But they were delicous!
My son says it gets 4 1/2 stars, I say 4, because I think that you should mix up the cheese mixture set a little bit longer to meld the flavors together. I left out the mushrooms as we don't like them and I added chopped up green olives. So I left out the salt too. I also was in hurry and this was our dinner with a salad, so I just rolled the crescents out to a rectangle shape stuffed with mixture and rolled long way. I made 10 large pinwheels. Thank you we enjoyed this very much.
We loved this. I made them for my daughter’s first birthday party and the whole family raved. I mixed all the cheeses and then only added a little onion and diced pepperoni to it. I also made them large by fusing all the dough together and then rolling it up and cutting it into 8 or 9 pieces. Seriously delicious!
The family liked these! I did press two rectangles together to make them a bit bigger since it was going to be a dinner dish. I was worried the cresents wouldn't cook evenly and be soggy, but no problem there! A definite repeat recipe!
