Since going gluten free, there are only two things I have really missed. One is Auntie Ann’s pretzels. I have fiddled a little bit with making gluten free soft pretzels, but I haven’t come up with anything great. The other is a calzone from Three Brothers Italian Restaurant.  My favorite is their spinach calzone, but the meatball one is great also.

calzone Then, a few weeks ago I saw a recipe for gluten-free calzones at Gluten Free Mom.  They looked great, and I decided to give them a try. I also decided to participate in Book of Yum's Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger event.

Gluten Free Mom has recipes, product reviews, and information on celiac disease and raising a celiac kid.  You will enjoy visiting the blog if you haven’t already. I followed Jamie’s calzone recipe as is except that I used instant yeast.  The calzones turned out really well, and it was so nice to eat them again. The dough is rather heavy and very filling, but that’s the way any gluten-free dough that you can roll, cut and pinch is going to be.

My whole family enjoyed these and I will definitely make them again.  Thanks, Jamie!

Wonderful! I'm really happy you participated and introduced me to the Gluten Free Mom Site. The calzones look great.

If you want a lighter GF dough, you might like using chebe as a pastry dough. It is really easy to work with and not at all heavy after baking. :)

These look delicious - we're talking about having them tonight, but it's getting hot enough that we'll probably BBQ. They are definitely on the list!
Hi, I am so glad you made them and liked them. The dough is definately a heavier dough, but easy to work with and thick enough to hold in a lot of ingredients.

Have a great weekend,
I did a google search for "how to make gluten free calzones" and that's how i found your site. Thank you so much for sharing this. My husband has celiacs and he asked me if i could make him these so i'm going to surprise him some night with them for dinner! thanks again!
