Recently, we took Kenya out for pizza and since then whenever I ask him what he wants for dinner he says "pizza"! I love making pizza for him at home, but last night I tried to switch it up a bit and make calzones.
Calzones are basically an Italian turnover made with pizza dough and stuffed with cheese, meat, vegetables or a variety of other stuffings. The best part is that if you don't love the combination I used in my recipe, you can improvise with your own favorite fillings.
My husband showed Kenya how cool it is to hold the calzone with his hands and bite right into it. After Kenya’s first bite I could barely make out his loud "mmm," which was stifled a bit by all the spinach and gooey cheese stuffed in his mouth. He ate the entire thing and even asked for more! If I can get a carbohydrate, vegetable, protein and dairy into my son and only have to cook one dish, I'm a seriously happy mommy!
