INGREDIENTS
7/8 cup warm water
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons white sugar
2 teaspoons active dry yeast

DIRECTIONS
1. Combine liquid ingredients in bread machine pan. Add flour and sugar, making a little well for the yeast to rest in. Add yeast. Set bread machine for dough setting and start. When the unit signals, remove dough.

2. Pat dough into a greased 14-inch pizza pan (14-16 ounces of dough is ideal, so I use the surplus to make mini pizzas or calzones for my kids. I prefer to use a pizza pan with holes in the bottom, because this makes an extra-crisp crust). Let stand 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (205 degrees C). Spread pizza sauce over dough. Sprinkle toppings over sauce. Bake on lowest oven rack for 15-20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

Heather, I was curious how you make calzones. This is one of my favorites, however, I have never attempted to make one! I would be ever so grateful for the recipe!
