Cupcake Calzones

Cupcake Project is currently my favorite blog for cupcake recipes. Stefani has lots of great ideas for creative cupcake recipes. Her latest is Cupcake Calzones. Take note, this is a savory cupcake, not a sweet one.




The idea for this cupcake is very basic. Cupcake Project: "Take pizza dough, fill it with your favorite pizza toppings, bake it a cupcake tin, and 'frost' it with tomato sauce, melted cheese, and a cherry (tomato) and you've got a calzone cupcake!"

Cupcake Project's post for Cupcake Calzones includes a recipe for pizza dough, although I'm just going to use the pre-made refrigerated pizza dough from Fresh & Easy. After all, I have very limited time to make dinner every night.

For the filling she uses zucchini, onions, corn, and garlic. My husband would not go for corn in his calzone, so I would probably use mushrooms, onions, and maybe some sausage.

For dessert, use the extra pizza dough to make more calzones. This idea is based off my favorite dessert from Claim Jumper: the chocolate chip calzone. Fill the calzone with chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and marshmallows. Bake and enjoy. You'll thank me later.

I can't wait to make dinner when we get back from Kauai!
