Breakfast Calzone

Although I ate these for lunch and dinner too, I think it’s only fitting to name this breakfast calzone just because I added scrambled eggs. I didn’t have enough pepperonis and my stash of hams are in my freezer, I also didn’t have enough patience to thaw the ham. Adding the scrambled eggs just reminds me of the time I burnt my tongue eating hot pockets.

As I said it before and I will repeat this over and over til the day I die, the great thing about home cooking is you get to customize everything. You can add veggies or make this vegetarian or vegan, they all will come out delicious. Dip them in marinara sauce, cheese sauce, tzatziki if you will. You are the mood of your own food. So give this thing a try and you’re welcome.


1 recipe Pizza Dough or 1 lb. store bought 

1/2 cup pizza sauce

Scrambled eggs from 4 large eggs

6 oz pepperonis

6 oz mozzarella cheese -shredded

Parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 450F 
  • Divide pizza dough into 4 equal pieces and roll each dough ball into a 1/4  inch thick circle.
  • On half of each circle, add equal parts of sauce. eggs, pepperonis and mozzarella cheese. Make sure to leave some room around the edges so you can seal the calzone shut. 
  • Season the toppings with salt and pepper, then fold the other half of the dough over the toppings and crimp the edges. 
  • Cut 3 air vents into the top of each calzone and place them onto a baking sheet.
  • Brush each calzone with olive oil and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until the dough is fully cooked and golden.
  • Remove from heat and serve with your favourite dipping sauce.
