Ham and Cheddar Stuffed Pretzel Calzones
Have you ever heard of a pretzel calzone? If not, you are in for a treat! This delicious recipe has salty ham, melty cheese, and freshly roasted broccoli all folded up inside of a pretzel! I used my favorite recipe for pretzel rolls, which pretty much ensures that these calzones taste like giant soft pretzels. Yum! I split the dough into 8 pieces, rolled each piece into a circle, and filled each calzone with tasty fillings. As I said above, I used ham, cheese and roasted broccoli, but you could use pretty much anything. After the calzones are filled and sealed, you give each one a boiling baking soda bath and top them with pretzel salt, just like traditional soft pretzels. After being baked, the calzones end up being soft, puffy, just a little bit crispy, and completely delicious. I hope you try these! Don’t be intimidated by making your own pretzel dough – I promise, it’s easier than it looks, and these pretzel calzones are well worth the work!
