Vegetable & Georgia Pecan Calzones

  • Yields 4 Servings


    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 1/2 cup chopped onion
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 16-oz. bag frozen mixed vegetables
    • Salt and black pepper
    • 1/2 cup plus 4 teaspoons shredded Parmesan cheese
    • 2/3 cup chopped toasted Georgia Pecans
    • 10-oz. tube refrigerated pizza dough


Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Lightly oil a large baking sheet. In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; add onion and sautee 5 minutes.

Stir in oregano, then mixed vegetables, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables have thawed – about 10 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese and the pecans.

Remove dough from package and spread to about a 14 1/2 inch square. Divide dough into 4 equal squares. Transfer 1 square to baking sheet and top with a heaping cupful of vegetable-pecan mixture. Fold over one corner of dough to meet opposite corner; pinch and roll edges together to enclose filling, creating a triangle turnover shape.

Lightly brush top with water, sprinkle with a teaspoon of remaining Parmesan and some black pepper. Make two small slashes in top. Set aside on baking sheet and repeat to make 3 more calzones.

Bake calzones 15-20 minutes or until well browned. Cool slightly before serving.
