BLT Calzone

BLTs in all forms! I put all my fav flavors into a calzone. I prepped this on a weekend, let it cool, and wrapped it up, and it was ready to go during the week! I baked it a little less than usual and the night we were going to eat it, I popped it into the oven for about 15 minutes. Voila! The little one is veryyy ready for dinner when we get home so this was such a great time saver.

2 tablespoons cornmeal/wheat germ

Preheat the oven to 400-degrees (and preheat the pizza stone, if using one).
Pan fry the bacon until crisp, and drain on paper towel.
Chop the spinach, tomato, and bacon.

Sprinkle the cornmeal or wheat germ onto the baking sheet or pizza stone.
Spread the dough out into a big circle. Then lay the dough off centered, onto the pizza stone/pan. (I try not to move the calzone once filled, so I lay the dough out onto the pizza stone to put the toppings on and fold the dough to become the top.)
Layer on half the cheese, half the bacon, half the tomato, half the spinach. Repeat. Pull the other half of the dough over the filling and pinch to close. Cut a few slits in the top to vent.
Bake for about 30 minutes, until golden brown.

Slice and enjoy!

The beauty of this calzone is the classic combo of these few ingredients. Calzones also make great leftovers so I was also in luck for lunch the next day too. Calzones are also easy to make mini so this can be 1 big calzone or 4 individual serving ones!
