Ham and Cheese Calzone
Why I Love This Recipe
This is such a tasty simple recipe as is, but it can be recreated by the addition of many different ingredients. Spinach, mushrooms, pineapple, olives, the list is limited only by your taste. Just make sure whatever you choose to use that it is not a raw ingredient, if you want to use any thing like sausage or ground beef, make sure you precook it before placing it in the calzone.
