This works well with any pizza dough you freeze. The process is simple – roll it out, fill it, fold it, crimp it, and bake it!

Chipotle Chicken and (Turkey) Bacon Calzones

I don’t remember the exact recipe, so we’re just gonna go with some approximation.

1. Marinate chicken in chipotle-in-adobo. Grill. Cube.
2. Mix ricotta with mozzarella and dried herbs.
3. Crisp (turkey) bacon in a pan and chop.
4. Roll out pizza dough till it’s pretty thin. Put down the ricotta, then (turkey) bacon, then chicken. Put some more mozzarella on top.
5. Wet the edges of the dough. Fold over the dough and crimp the edges. Brush the top with egg wash and sprinkle some Parmesan on top.
6. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, until golden brown on top.
7. Serve with tomato sauce.

    Salam sister,

    How come you are using bacon in your cooking? or is it bacon from a halal animal? i just wanted to find out. Maybe I’m being dense…but the only bacon I know of is bacon from pigs.

    Take care
    best wishes

    Sorry, I should have clarified. I use turkey bacon – it’s just cured turkey cut into strips. Jazakallah khair for clarifying.
