Buffalo Chicken Calzones

My first attempt at calzones didn't really turn out that aesthetically pleasing, however, they did taste bombtastic and I will try again to not fail at making them. Word to the wise, have your circle ON your baking sheet before you load it up. I think I may have to use my whole dough recipe, rather than only half. But seriously, even if you mess it up royally, it still is the best thing to ever get in my belly.

You can serve this with ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing, but we're hardcore in this house and eat it just like it is. And by hardcore, I mean we don't eat either of those - blech!

What you need:
  • 1 lb. pizza dough {used my favorite}
  • 1 lb. chicken breasts, diced
  • 2 tsp. plus 1/2 cup hot pepper sauce, divided
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pizza sauce {used homemade}
Melt butter in a hot skillet and cook chicken.

Once chicken in cooked, reduce heat and add 1/2 cup hot pepper sauce. Stir well. 
Simmer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix together pizza sauce and 2 tsp. hot pepper sauce.

Divide pizza dough in half and roll into circles.

Top each circle with half pizza sauce, half the chicken, and half the mozzarella cheese.

Fold circle in half and crimp with fork to seal.
Bake at 450* for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.
