Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

What's for dinner 11/12/10:Big Kahuna Calzones

Tonight's Feingold friendly meal is a fun one, Big Kahuna Calzones

Big Kahuna Calzones
Serves 6
1 recipe of your favorite pizza crust
12 slices of chopped ham
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup of your favorite pizza sauce (I used tomato sauce with added spices
1 8oz can of pineapple tidbits
2 large eggs (I didn't use these)

  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

1) Drain pineapple and cut the pineapple chunks into smaller pieces if you are using fresh pineapple or canned pineapple chunks instead of tidbits.

2) In a bowl, combine the pineapple with the ham and cheese.

3) When it has risen, divide the pizza dough into even portions. On a floured surface, roll each piece into an 8-inch round. You will have to eyeball the portions of the dough, and might need to discard some of it.

4) Beat the eggs and brush the edge of each base with beaten eggs.

5) Spread pizza sauce over each base. Top with even portions of the filling over half of each round.

6) Fold over the dough and press the eggy edges gently to seal.

7) Crimp the edges of each calzone to thoroughly seal.

8) Brush each calzone with beaten egg. Lay the calzones carefully on a greased pan and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until golden and cooked through. Heat remaining pizza sauce and serve with the calzones. 

VERDICT: this was fun and yummy for a Friday night and a movie...
