I Can’t Get Over How Tasty This Recipe Is! And They Reheat So Well For Quick Lunches!

We love a good Philly Cheesesteak, so anytime we’re in the area, we make sure we get our fill.

However, when we get that hankering for a good cheesesteak and don’t have the option to indulge in a good, traditional one, this calzone makes a great substitute and is easy to recreate at home!  Part of what makes the flavor great is the use of cheesesteak ingredients; provolone or American cheese, flank steak and the pre-grilled veggies. Wrap it all up with even more cheese, pop it in the oven and you’ve got a seriously tasty lunch or dinner! Plus, with this recipe in your arsenal, you can tweak and customize to make a ton of delicious future meals, win win!



Serves 4


  • 1 (10 oz.) package refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 1/2 pound flank steak or deli roast beef, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup provolone or American cheese, grated
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 3/4 cup white onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, optional
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • marinara sauce, garnish
  • sliced mushrooms and green peppers, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400º F and lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick spray or olive oil.
  2. Heat a pan or skillet over medium-high heat and brown meat on all sides, then set aside.
  3. In the same pan, saute onions (and mushrooms and peppers, if using) until softened and translucent. 6-8 minutes.
  4. Once cooked, remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Gently roll dough out into a large circle and transfer to baking sheet. Note: it’s okay if the dough doesn’t fit in/on baking sheet, as it will be folded in half.
  6. Sprinkle majority of the cheeses evenly over half of the dough, making sure to leave a 1/2-inch border around the edge.
  7. Spread steak over the cheese and season with salt and pepper; then top with onions (and mushrooms/peppers).
  8. Spread remaining cheese over the meat and vegetable(s).
  9. Fold the uncovered half of pizza dough over all the toppings and use your fingers to firmly press and seal the edges together.
  10. Use a fork to poke some holes in the top of calzone, allowing space for the steam to escape.
  11. Brush the top of calzone with remaining olive oil, sprinkle with parsley and place in oven. Bake for 19-22 minutes, or until golden brown.
  12. Remove from oven and serve with marinara sauce or your choice of garnish.
