Chicken, Cheddar and Heirloom Tomato Calzone

A quick and easy hot lunch using ingredients that I typically have on hand. 


Pizza dough
1/2 lb of sliced chicken breast
1 cup sliced heirloom tomatoes
1/4 lb of sliced cheddar cheese
olive oil
Italian seasoning


Preheat oven to 375 F.  Roll out pizza dough into a rectangle on a greased cookie sheet.  Brush a little olive oil on the dough.   Sprinkle the top of dough with about 1 teaspoon of italian seasoning.  Starting at the bottom of dough (closest to you) put a single layer of sliced chicken breast.  Then above that in the middle of the dough add a layer of tomatoes.  Lastly on the top portion of the dough add a single layer of sliced cheddar cheese.  Starting back at the bottom of the dough roll the dough upward folding in all the ingredients.  Once the dough is completely rolled up place is seam side down on the greased cookie sheet.  Brush the top of the dough roll up with olive oil and sprinkle the top with 1/2 teaspoon (give or take) of italian seasoning.  Bake at 375 for about 18-20 minutes until the dough is browned all over.  Remove from oven, let stand for about 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

Pretty Tomatoes!
