These Mini Calzones can be tricky to handle. Don’t overfill or you will have a mess!

Place 1 teaspoon of sauce in the center of the biscuit along with a few shreds of vegan cheese. Set 1 piece of pepperoni on top of the cheese and sauce an fold over into a half-circle. Place all ten on a cookie sheet.

Look, they are almost all perfect little half circles! Do you notice though, that not all of the mini calzones are quite perfect? This is a result of me either tearing the dough, accidentally letting the sauce spread out to the edges (can’t get a good seal), or filling the circle too full before folding over. The thing about vegan cheese versus dairy cheese is that a little goes a long way so you won’t be tempted to fill your calzone too full. Mini Calzone Pizza Dippers And this disaster is what you will get if you fill it too full…

Cook the mini calzones in a 400° oven for 10-13 minutes or until nicely browned. Eat right away, or store the pizza dippers to snack on later. Wait till they are mostly cooled before putting in an airtight container. Consume within 5 days. Serve with a vegan ranch dipping sauce, or with pizza/marinara sauce. If you want an oil-free pasta sauce, you can make mine.
