Recipe: Hawaiian calzone

Updated: 07-01-2010

Dietitian's tip: Instead of topping the calzone with pizza sauce, make your own tomato relish with fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil and oregano. Serve with a fresh green salad and assorted sliced fresh fruit.

Ingredients

Serves: 4

  • 4 ounces Canadian bacon, diced
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 red bell pepper, roasted and chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons crushed pineapple, drained well
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free honey Dijon salad dressing
  • 1 can (10 ounces) whole-wheat bread dough, refrigerated or frozen
  • 1/4 cup shredded mixed cheese, such as provolone, Parmesan, Romano and mozzarella
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup pizza sauce

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, add the Canadian bacon, onion, tomato, roasted red pepper, pineapple and salad dressing. Mix well.

On a floured surface, cut the dough into quarters. Press each piece into a circle. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into an oval. On each oval, add the Canadian bacon mixture and 1 tablespoon cheese. Fold the dough over the filling, pressing the edges together. Crimp with a fork and place on the prepared baking sheet.

Brush the calzones with the olive oil. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Top each with 1/4 cup warmed pizza sauce and serve immediately.
