    Calzones are a great alternative to the usual pizza, and a quick weeknight supper fix. Just roll out your favourite pizza dough into individual sized rounds and divide this filling between them. Fold each round in half and seal the edges by pinching them with your fingers. Bake in a preheated 230 C / Gas mark 8 oven on a baking tray for about 10 minutes, or until calzones are lightly browned.
