Well we had our first rendezvous last week and the couple that ran the cook tent gave us a 5 pack of frozen bread dough that wasn't frozen anymore. Well even being in the fridge all week it kept popping out of its bag...so finally had time to divide it and stretched out some dough then parbaked it and froze some of it. The other 2 pieces got made into a pizza and mega calzone!

Stretched the dough out on pan then parbaked it for a bit. Started with a ketchup and mustard mix based sauce, browned hamburger with green chilis added in, sautéed onion, and bacon bits.

Add some homemade pepperoni, made with mix from Owen's BBQ. Topped with smoked cheddar and mozzarella

The calzone was basically the same minus the pepperoni. Out of the oven and a sliced pic

This thing was huge! Leftover piece still filled the plate

Of course we needed a side of onions with ranch and salt

Those onions came from our wild onion patch that started about 15 years ago. We had a partial bag of yellow onions that went bad, so we threw them out with garbage and put them in burn barrel. Over time the burn barrel rusted in half and fell over onto the cement. Over the years there were hogs and sheep raised here and eventually these onions started growing. After about 10 years they actually made it onto the lawn

That's about it for this one so thanks for stopping by! And remember to smile! Who knows, you might even make someone's day. If nothing else, it will make them wonder what you're up to!

Thank you! It really hit the spot! Last time we had frozen bread dough out my wife was gonna make cinnamon rolls but I talked her into a deep dish pizza that turned out awesome! Thanks to help from some members here I can make a pretty good pizza dough but when tired this works well also.

Man what’s not to like about that pizza and calzone! Love the green onion and ranch. I do the same with wings instead of celery.

Thank you! Funny thing is we have tried growing the green onions in garden without much luck. But grow on cement in an inch or two of 20 year old dirt and manure with no help... no watering, fertilizer or weeding. But get a bit strong come mid summer.

Thanks Rich! I appreciate it! You're one that really has helped me with making pizza dough...maybe soon I can get back to it. Been too busy lately but try to remind myself that no matter how bad of a day I think I might be having, there might be someone else that's having a worse one. So maybe a smile just won't hurt!
