YIELD Makes 4 hot pockets.
We had initially decided that we were going to make homemade pizzas for when my parents came up to visit this weekend. They're easy to make and truly healthy because we use tons of veggies and pack it all onto a whole wheat crust. But I was experimenting in the kitchen and decided to give calzones a try. Soon I realized that it was not only easy to do, but you can stuff miniature calzones (or hot pockets) with whatever you like and they'll keep fresh for a couple of days.
We made veggie hot pockets stuffed with vegan sausage, spinach, and mozzarella. But you can vary the recipe to include whatever you're craving. The best part is that you can make a bunch of them for the week, wrap them tightly, and store them in the refrigerator. When you want to eat, just bake it up. These are great for a quick bite at home or even in school lunches (once baked).
Just make the dough and stuff in more good things than you think each one can handle because the dough expands dramatically when they are baked. Get creative with your ingredients by using this recipe as a means of putting leftover veggies and meats to good use.
