Vegan Pepperoni Cheesy Calzone

Vegan Pepperoni Cheesy Calzone - Trader Joes Pizza Dough - Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

This was 100% amazing. I was thinking the crust might come out a little dry. And that I was wasting an opportunity to enjoy a really nice pizza but I was wrong. This vegan calzone was sooooo good! Whatever you like about a grilled cheese sandwich this calzone has. And maybe even better. Dipping sauce is a must. Why am I so surprised that melted vegan cheese with dough is awesome? I used grated daiya cheese but I’m 99% sure their sliced cheese would have been better. I’m pretty sure their sliced vegan cheese is stretchy, melty goodness while their brick cheese & shredded cheese just doesn’t hold the same visual appeal. Good either way!

Vegan Pepperoni Cheesy Calzone - Trader Joes Pizza Dough - Rich Bitch Cooking Blog

1 lb pizza dough (I used trader joes), shredded or sliced vegan cheese, vegan pepperoni, oil and spices & salt (flour for handling dough)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place your cookie sheet in the preheated oven
  2. Coat your hands and working space with flour. Form dough into a ball and cut into 4 pieces. Stretch each of those into semi oval-semi rectangular shapes.
  3. Lay 4 or so pieces of vegan pepperoni down on one half of the dough
  4. Put about an ounce or more cheese on top. I used a small handful. Just enough to full the pouch while still being able to pinch it closed.
  5. Pinch pouch closed. Carefully poke holes along the top.
  6. Coat top with oil and season with salt and dried herbs.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until crust is golden. Serve with pasta sauce. ENJOY
