Cheesy Calzones

Kids night in the kitchen for us.  Ok well for Brooklyn and me.  Caleb is shopping for baseball pants while we get to have all of the fun.

What’s a good way to get kids to eat their vegetables?  Cut it up and put it in a pizza of course!  Brooklyn actually likes broccoli so I didn’t have to try so hard with her.  But Caleb, he may not be so kind to the fact that I cut it up and put it in there.  Which is why there are two calzones.  One for the boys, and one for the girls.  Girls rule, boys drool!!  That said by Brooklyn!!

What you need:

1 can (13.8 oz) refrigerated pizza crust

1/4 cup  pizza sauce

1 cup  KRAFT Shredded Low fat Colby Jack

3 slices  OSCAR MAYER Deli Fresh Shaved Ham

2  Tbsp. small broccoli pieces

Green olives cut in half (as many as you like)

1 Tbsp.  water

1 Tbsp.  KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese

Make it:

1. Heat oven to 400°F.  Cut dough roll in half crosswise.  Unroll 1 half on large baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.

2. Spread pizza sauce evenly down center of dough, leaving 1/2-inch around edges. Sprinkle with cheese. Top 1/3 with turkey and second third with broccoli and corn, leaving last third cheese only.  Unfold remaining dough half over filling.  Crimp edge with fork.  Cut rectangle into thirds crosswise.  Cut each rectangle on diagonal into 2 pieces (do not separate).  Brush dough with water.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

3. Bake 15 to 19 min. or until golden brown.  Cool 5 min.

How fun do these look?  And guess how much fun us girls had making them!!!  I can’t say this enough.  The more the kids help participate in cooking, the more they enjoy eating the food they make.  Even if it has broccoli.
