There is a great little restaurant in Mesa, Arizona called Bellagio Pizzeria. They serve a wide variety of Mediterranean food. But their calzones are the best! Today I will try to replicate the Buffalo Chicken Calzone using several borrowed recipes. For the dough, the usual recipe, replacing 1 cup of flour with whole wheat pastry flour. I will use this recipe for Buffalo Sauce, reducing the hot sauce to 1/4 cup. And I’ll be cooking the chicken in my usual way, with the addition of 1 chicken thigh for a bit of extra flavor. If I shred the chicken, pour on the sauce and add some Mozzarella, then wrap the pizza dough around this and bake it, I think that should do it.

I ended up using 215g chicken breast and 350g chicken thigh. I added 4 ounces mozzarella cheese and divided the mixture among 8 calzones. I baked them at 375 for 30 minutes. I reheat them in the oven for dinner. We will probably have steam vegetables and ranch dressing for dipping.
