Pizza, pizza pizza. Why is it that children can be sooo picky when it comes to chicken and meat—but never grow tired of anything pizza-related? My children would be happy if I would take them to a pizza shop every night and let them order whatever they want. And while they love calzones, they would never eat a vegetable calzone chas v’shalom (though they do eat sliced pepper and plain broccoli—but somehow it turns “ewww” when it ruins the perfect combination of dough and cheese).
One day I decided enough is enough. I’m going to make the calzone they love...and switch it up into a fleishig dish by including ground meat. Most of my kids were willing to taste it (and they liked it!)... as long as I promised them a trip to the pizza shop in the near future.
Yield: 16 calzones
