Calzone Hearts a Valentine Dinner for Kids

 

Kids will have fun helping to make these cute calzone hearts for dinner.  Filled with mozzarella cheese, turkey pepperoni and marinara sauce, these are a sure hit.  Add in the marinara dipping sauce and you can’t miss.

 Kids can help:  Filling the dough and crimping edges.

 Dough

 Ingredients

  • 1 pkg yeast
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 ¾ cup white flour
  • 1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour

 Combine yeast, sugar and warm water and let set for 5 minutes.  Mix remaining ingredients and then add yeast mixture.  Let dough rise, in a warm place, for about 1-2 hours, until double in size.

Roll out a small portion of the dough at a time, cutting two equal sized hearts.  Fill middle with filling, thin layer marinara sauce, turkey pepperoni, cheese, and then crimp edges with a fork.  Set on baking tray.  Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.  Test to make sure dough is done baking.  Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.

 Filling

  • Mozzarella cheese
