  • 13.8 ounces refrigerated pizza dough (1 can)
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup sliced pepperoni


  • Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  • Flatten dough to 1/8” thick on a floured surface.
  • Using a cookie cutter or bowl, cut out 5” circles.
  • Spread about a tablespoon of pizza sauce on half of the dough circle. Add cheese and pepperoni (don’t overstuff the dough).
  • Fold opposite side over to form a half circle. Crimp edges with a fork or a pastry crimper.
  • After air fryer has preheated, lightly oil the basket or use a parchment liner. Place calzones in the air fryer basket and cook for 5 minutes. Flip and cook for 2 more minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Let cool before eating.


  • Recipe will make 5-6 calzones depending on the amount of dough you are using.
  • Room temperature dough works best.
  • Optional dipping sauces: marinara, Ranch, garlic butter sauce and Sriracha.
  • To freeze: make calzones as directed up to cooking. Place uncooked calzones on a sheet pan and flash freeze for 4 hours. Transfer to a freezer-safe container. To reheat from frozen: cook at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes, until heated through and golden brown. Check at the 8 minute mark and adjust time if needed.
