Chicken,Tomato, Broccoli and Pesto Calzone

Another Good Thymes and Good Food blogger recipe! Original recipe Chicken, Artichoke, Pesto Calzones

  • refrigerated pizza dough
  • Pesto (I used store bought)
  • 2 thin grilled chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 large diced tomato
  • 2 broccoli heads, cooked and chopped
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Grill chicken in olive oil, then cut into small pieces.
  3. Saute broccoli, then chop.
  4. Dice tomato(es)
  5. Unroll pizza dough, spread thin, and cut into 4 even rectangles.
  6. Put about a tbsp of pesto on each piece of dough, covering only 1/2 a side.
  7. Add chicken, broccoli and tomatoes.
  8. Top with cheese.
  9. Fold untopped dough over to cover toppings.
  10. Press down around edges to seal, then brush over with olive oil.
  11. Bake for about 13 minutes (original recipe called for 13-15 minutes. My oven always takes longer then suggested bake time, but 15 minutes was a bit too long!)
