Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Combine 2 cup of flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Stir in the warm water and oil until mixture is thick and sticky, about 1 minute. Add another 1 cup flour to the bowl and mix with a sturdy spoon until mixture comes together, then transfer to a flour-dusted surface. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic, adding extra flour as needed.
  3. Divide dough into 8 balls and press into circles about 6 inches in diameter, making sure the dough does not become too thin.
  4. Meanwhile mix together the macaroni and cheese with the shredded mozzarella cheese in a small bowl. Divide the macaroni and cheese mixture among the centers of the calzone, leaving at least a 1 inch border around the circle. Divide the bbq pulled pork among the calzones on top of the macaroni and cheese.
  5. Lightly beat the egg with 1 tsp water in a small dish and lightly brush the outer edges of the calzone to help create a seal. Fold the calzone over, creating a pocket for the filling and use a fork to crimp closed.
  6. Poke the tops of the calzones with the fork a few times to create air holes in the filling. Brush the tops with the egg wash and sprinkle with a little bit of grated parmesan cheese and black pepper.
  7. Place calzones on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 13 to 15 minutes, until calzones are golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes before enjoying.

Notes

Macaroni and Cheese and bbq pulled pork do not need to be preheated.
