  • For calzone:
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 reserved chicken breast halves, diced, about 2 cups
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2/3 cup reserved tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 pound fresh or frozen pizza or bread dough, thawed according to package directions
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • For dip:
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
Watch how to make this recipe. For dip:
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  • Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, tomato sauce, liquid smoke, and hot sauce. Mix well and set aside.

  • Roll dough out, using a rolling pin, to a 12-inch circle. Spread chicken mixture over half of circle, to within 1-inch of the edge. Fold over untopped side so that it meets the other side, forming a half moon. Pinch the edges together to seal.

  • Transfer calzone to prepared baking sheet and brush the top with olive oil. Sprinkle the top with Parmesan. Using a sharp knife, make a few slits in the top to allow steam to escape during cooking. Bake 15 minutes, until puffed up and golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

For dip:
  • While the calzone is baking, in a small bowl, combine sour cream, blue cheese and chives.

  • Serve calzone sliced with sour cream dip on the side.
