Pizza Dough Zones

The calzone—pizza dough lavished with a handful of cheese and other toppings, folded over, sealed, and baked—is the perfect self-contained meal. Here we fill ours with cheese, ham, and sliced jalapeños, and because we start with store-bought pizza dough, it all comes together in a flash.

What to buy: Premade pizza dough is available bagged in 14- or 16-ounce portions at well-stocked groceries. If you’d like to make your own, you’ll need two-thirds of our Basic Pizza Dough recipe.

This recipe was featured as part of our 6 Amazing Pizza-Dough Transformations project.

Tips for Ham


  1. 1Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. 2Cut the ball of pizza dough in half.
  3. 3Roll each half into a 7-by-14-inch rectangle and transfer to a baking sheet.
  4. 4Layer the cheese, ham, and sliced jalapeños lengthwise across the bottom half of each rectangle. Fold over and seal the edges.
  5. 5Bake until puffed and brown, about 15 minutes.
