Louise's Italian Cafe Grilled Chicken Calzone


  • 1 (10 ounce) package refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1/4 cup prepared pesto
  • 6 tablespoons ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/2 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese (scant 1/2 cup)
  • 1 ounce sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 5 ounces grilled chicken breast (1 boneless, skinless chicken breast half), cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 teaspoon grated Parmesan/Romano mixture
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Parsley sprigs for garnish


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Unroll pizza dough and place on greased baking sheet.
  3. Layer pesto, cheeses, sun-dried tomatoes and chicken breast pieces in middle of dough. Lift one edge of dough and stretch over the filling to form a half-moon. Seal edges by pressing with tines of fork or pizza wheel, and make a fluted edge around the seal.
  4. Prick top with fork to allow steam to escape.
  5. Brush with olive oil.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
  8. Garnish with parsley.

Yield: 2 to 3 servings
