Heart Shaped Pizza Calzones


  • 1 pre made pizza crust dough
  • 1 jar pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted


  1. Roll out pizza dough and use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut the dough into hearts. If you don't have a heart shaped cookie cutter you can create a paper template and cut around it with a sharp knife.

  2. Make sure you have 2 hearts for each calzone.  Place dough hearts on a greased baking sheet and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 

  3. Spread about a tablespoon of sauce on each heart. Chop pepperoni into small squares and sprinkle over sauce. Top with mozzarella cheese. 

  4. Stretch second dough heart over each calzone. Use a fork to pinch the calzones closed around the edges. 

  5. Spread melted butter over the tops of each calzone using a pastry brush or spatula. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top. Serve with extra pizza sauce.
