that time a pizza and a calzone had a baby.
Oh hot dang! We made a video!
Perhaps in the future I will talk in the videos. Perhaps. But for now…PIZZA. The pizza-calzone idea was from that time I went to Mascalzone. I remember thinking, “holy crap. I’m never making pizza the same way again.”
To take a jog down memory lane, here’s a photo of THAT pizza below.
Fast-forward 3 months and here we are…making videos about pizza and calzones having a baby. I love life. And basil. And the olympics. I’m watching Gabby Douglas’s floor routine right now and I keep yelling, “dayyyyymnnn!” How does one move their body in that way? These are things I don’t know. But I do know how to move pizza dough in fun ways. So that is kind of the same thing.
As seen in the pizzahhh video above, you can make this pizza in 1 minute and 1 second. That’s a bit of a lie. You really need about 25 minutes. Totally realistic for a weeknight dinner. So quick.
And another lovely thing about this recipe is that you can use the toppings that make you sing.
This weekend we had hired someone to come help us shoot videos. However, on Friday he texted me that he couldn’t come anymore. So Andrew and I were like, “screw it, we will just figure out videos ourselves.” So that is what we did. And while doing that, I came to a massive conclusion…
I really don’t think I could ever have an intern or hire someone to work with me because I am so mean. Not mean, but I just get super frustrated and annoyed with everyone around me when things aren’t going right. So yeah, mean.
I really think family are the only people who could/would put up with me. So Andrew will be my only employee for the foreseeable future.
EXCEPT. I’m thinking of firing Andrew because we just had a conversation about Ryan Reynolds. Andrew thinks he’s a mega-douche. I think he’s mega-attractive and mega-funny and kinda-mega-perfect. I don’t know if I can work with someone who has that opinion of Ryan.
Yield: 1 pizza
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
1 pizza dough
thinly sliced tomatoes
Preheat oven according to pizza dough directions. Roll out your pizza dough. Top with pizza sauce, 3/4 of the cheese, pepperoni, tomatoes, and remaining 1/4 of the cheese. Fold a fourth of the pizza onto itself to make one side of the pizza a calzone. Bake until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly. Sprinkle with fresh basil. SLICE and eat.
calzone + pizza = calizza. Or pizzone. I think I like, “pizzone,” best.
