Calzone Bundt #BundtBakers

Pizza in a Bundt pan?  Yep this tasty Calzone is shaped into a roll, placed into a Bundt pan and baked to a golden brown with an ooey, gooey center for a fun dinner presentation.

Join the Bundt Bakers today as we explore the world of Savory Bundts........

When my friend Sneha, of Sneha's Recipe invited us to share a savory Bundt my first thought was to go for breakfast as I did in this Mexican Breakfast Bundt that was absolutely delicious.

As you can see, I changed my mind and you will be glad I did because this is a Bundt that will be sure to please your family come dinner time.

So will these other Savory Bundts being shared today.......

I am so happy to have some new dinner ideas.  Sometimes when making my Weekly Menu I feel that I am lacking creativity.  That won't be a problem when I add some of these creations to my line up.

The Bundt that I'm sharing today was actually a spur of the moment thing.  The Teen had some friends over to spend the night and I had bought the makings for a pizza pie.  Inspiration hit when I remembered this challenge and I decided to turn that pizza into a Calzone baked in a Bundt Pan.

So I rolled my Easy Weeknight Pizza Dough into an oval instead of a round.  Then I placed a row of pepperoni slices, overlapping, down the center and sprinkled on some shredded Mozzarella cheese.

I added a small amount of sauce that I made down the center and served the rest at the table for people to add as desired.  I am including the sauce in this recipe and it is so easy and delicious I think you will want to try it but if you prefer you can use pre-made sauce and just rewarm when ready to place on the table.  Then I sprinkled some Parmesan cheese over the sauce but didn't take a photo.

Rolled it into a loaf, pinching the edges together and placed it into the Bundt pan.

15-20 minutes in a hot oven and dinner is ready to be served. 

I threw together a Caesar Salad while the Bundt baked and had 3 very happy Teens as well as a happy Hubby.  Life was good and easy peasy.
