Gluten free calzones stuffed with pizza sauce, cheese, and your favorite pizza toppings are a great snack, dinner, or game day treat! Take one bite of a gluten free calzone and the melted cheese will just ooze out all over.
This gluten free calzone recipe reminds me a lot of homemade gluten free Hot Pockets.
Gluten Free Calzone Recipe
Calzones are easy to hold, and fun to eat. I have finally created a gluten-free calzone recipe that tastes just like the good old days.
This gluten-free calzone recipe takes a little bit of time to make, but if you are patient, you will be rewarded with a delicious crust. (And don’t forget the gooey melted mozzarella cheese!)
After the gluten free calzone dough has risen, I take a baseball sized clump of dough and put it between two pieces of wax paper. This makes it easier to roll out.
And now the fun part. You can add sauce and cheese, salsa and other Mexican toppings, or anything else you can dream up to the inside of your gluten free calzone.
My son wanted salami in his gluten free Hot Pockets.
Fold the dough over and press the edges of your gluten free calzone closed.
