Patio Pizzeria- Artisan Pizza and Flatbreads on the GrillHere is our American version of calzones, with a filling of spicy pulled pork. You can buy pulled pork, slow-smoke it, or even cook it in a slow cooker. We use just a bit of Parmesan cheese in each of the calzones, even though you might not normally think of pairing cheese and barbecue.

  • Yield: 4 Calzones


  • 1 recipe Slow-Rise Pizza Dough or Classic Pizza Dough
  • All-purpose flour for dusting
  • 1½ cups shredded pulled pork
  • 0.33 cup spicy barbecue sauce, such as Sweet Baby Ray’s
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
How to Make It
  1. Prepare a medium-hot fire in your grill.
  2. When ready to grill, divide the dough into 4 portions. Roll them into rounds about 6 inches in diameter on a lightly floured surface.
  3. Combine the pulled pork and barbecue sauce and spoon equal amounts of the pork mixture into the center of each circle of dough, spreading to within 1 inch of the edge. Sprinkle each calzone with 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan. Fold over each circle of dough to form a halfmoon. Crimp the dough edges to seal in the stuffing.
  4. Grill them over a hot fire or on a hot griddle for about 3 minutes per side, until nicely browned. Serve at once.
