BBQ Chicken and Bacon Calzones

    40 min

    If you like bbq chicken pizza, you'll love this easy version in a calzone. Lots of shortcuts in this so it's ready in no time at all. It calls for cooked chicken, bottled bbq sauce and I use ready made pizza dough - you'll need to cook the bacon but you can leave it out if you're short on time.

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 slices bacon
    • 1/2 small onion, sliced
    • 420 g cooked chicken breast, shredded
    • 160 ml barbeque sauce
    • 1 portion pizza dough (Jus rol makes these)
    • 120g grated mozzarella cheese
    • 2 tablespoons fresh coriander, for serving

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Grill or fry the bacon until cooked; dry off on kitchen paper and chop up into smaller pieces.
    2. Cook the onion and shredded chicken in a little oil or in some of the bacon grease in a pan. Fry over medium heat until onion is tender. Stir in bbq sauce, and remove from the heat. Stir in the cooked bacon.
    3. Place the pizza dough on a baking tray, making sure it is an even thickness. Then cut it in half. Divide the chicken mixture between the two pieces of dough, spreading on only half of each piece (but not too close to the edge). Drizzle the remaining sauce over the filling. Sprinkle the cheese and coriander over the top. Fold the uncovered portion of dough over the filling, and press the edges together with a fork to seal.
    4. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the calzone is golden brown. Cool for a few minutes, then cut each calzone in half and serve.

    Tasty and great flavour combo. Kids loved it (even the one that doesn't like bacon) I know it's a winner as they have asked for it again :-D only this time they want me to add a bit of pineapple I'm not sure but I'll give it a go  -  19 Mar 2013

    Let me just say I dont EVER rate recipes on here.. usually for fear of offending someone. With that said, this is absolutely a wonderful recipe! The thing is folks, it tastes just exactly like a bbq chicken pizza, and said pizzas have chicken, red onion, cilantro & cheese. If you don't like bbq chicken pizza its no surprise that you wouldnt like this. I just think it kind of defeats the purpose of making a recipe called "BBQ Chicken Calzones" and then give it a bad rating because you dont like an ingredient. Anyway, thats my two cents. It really is a fool-proof recipe. Thanks!  -  12 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
