Veggie Calzones

Last week, as celebration for finally finishing my Big Scary Paper, we had a few good friends over for Bad Movie Night.

The essential components of Bad Movie Night are:
  1. A very very bad movie
  2. Lots of alcohol to get through said movie
  3. Junk food
Well for this night, we chose Sharknado for the bad movie. Friends supplied the alcohol, and I made a veggie platter because apparently I don't understand the concept of junk food.

Surprisingly, the veggie platter was practically gone at the end of the evening (and I still have alcohol in my fridge and bag of caramel corn. Apparently my friends have their priorities all wrong.)

Even so, I still had a bag of straggling vegetables that didn't get consumed at the party.  Come Thursday evening, I felt I should use them before they started to go bad. So the veggie calzone was born.

I roasted all the veggies in a pan with some olive oil, s&p, and garlic powder.  Then I made my pizza dough recipe, cut it into two pieces, rolled them out, filled them with veggies and cheese, and sealed the edges. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

In retrospect, I forgot to make slits in the top to avoid the air pocket, but they still tasted delicious.

And sorry for being too lazy to post an actual recipe.
