Mini Pizza Calzones

Ken came up with this idea and made these delightful bites for us. I love when he is creating in the kitchen, not only do I get a break but he always makes something so divine. These would be great for lunch, appetizer, kids party, the list goes on and on.

Amber and I loved them and gobbled them down in no time. A real treat, if you love pizza you are going to love these!! ENJOY!!
