Servings: 8


  • 1/2 pound Eckrich Hard Salami
  • 2 lbs Prepared Pizza Dough
  • 4 ounces Pizza Sauce
  • 4 slices Provolone Cheese cut in half
  • 1/2 cup Pickled Banana Peppers
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese shredded
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1 Teaspoon Parmesan Cheese


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl combine Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese, and set aside.
  • Divide pizza dough into 8 even balls of dough.
  • Hand stretch each ball of dough into a round about 8 inches across.
  • Then to each ball of dough: Spread 1 Tablespoon pizza sauce onto one side, leaving a space along the edges for sealing the calzone later.
  • Place half a slice of provolone cheese down onto the sauce.
  • Top provolone cheese with 3-4 slices Eckrich Hard Salami, folding each piece in half to make it fit inside the calzone better.
  • Top with some banana peppers, mozzarella cheese, and a little more pizza sauce.
  • Fold the empty half of the dough over the top of the filling, and pinch the edges together to form a crescent shape.
  • Then crimp edges all around to reinforce the seal. Repeat with each calzone.
  • Transfer to prepared baking sheets.
  • Brush tops with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle the Italian seasoning and parmesan mixture over the top.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Enjoy
