    JQuinn,[p]No idea on the calzones, but do get the pizza stone and a plate setter. My first pizza or two were bunrt crust fiascos (such that my daughter refused to try later attempts --- she finally relented upon bribing). My two keys to non-burnt crust were (1) get plate setter and pizza stone. The extra mass is critical. (2) I use pizza screens that I picked up from Ace Mart for $1-2 each. Haven't burnt a crust since.

    Hi JQuinn,
    I do calzones frequently. My grandsons like the 'Philly cheese steak' best. Grilled rib eye, red bell, white onion,
    provolone, salt, course pepper with a dusting of Cowlick, EVOO & Balsamic vinegar.
    Brush a coat of butter on half way through.
    For dough see the link.

    ThinkandDrive,[p]They are little screens that you can bake your pizza on. Walmart supposedly have some foil ones under $1. Here are some pictures:[p]"pizza+screen"+oven
