These calzones use up odds and ends from the fridge without sacrificing flavor. The recipe can be scaled up depending on how many you’re serving. It’s delicious with very little hands on time. That’s my kind of convenience dinner.
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Drizzle olive oil over the bottom of a rimmed baking sheet or pan. Sprinkle semolina or cornmeal evenly over the oil. Set aside.
In a bowl or on a cutting board, gently toss together the onions, chicken, cheese and crushed red pepper flakes. Set aside.
Lightly flour your work surface and your rolling pin. Use rolling pin to roll the dough into an approximately 8 to 9 inch circle.
Transfer the chicken, cheese, and onion mixture onto half of the circle of dough, leaving about 3/4 of an inch of bare dough around the edge.
Carefully lift the empty part of the dough over the filling, tucking in any stray bits of filling that want to poke out.
Fold edges back in on themselves and pinch together tightly to hold dough shut. Gently transfer to the prepared pan. Use a very sharp knife to slash two small steam vents in the calzone.
Bake for 25-30 minutes (depending on how brown and crispy you like your calzones.) Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 5 minutes prior to serving. Serve alone or with bleu cheese dressing or marinara sauce.
