Piggy Calzone Bento

I was so happy with the way my pizzas turned out, I decided to make calzones. I rolled the dough (use any pizza dough for this) out into circles, then placed chopped ham, pepperoni, grated cheese and baby arugula on half, and folded the circle in half, pinching to seal the edges together. For fun, I added two balls for ears (which I rolled in flaxmeal), and a little circle for a snout. I intended for it to result in a cute bear face, but the snout rose during baking and I think it looks more like a pig snout now. So a piggy it is. The calzone fits perfectly in one side of the Sistema box, while the other sectioned side contains: corn, broccoli, carrots, pluots, nectarines, grapes, strawberry and lychee. Oink!

  6. How cute and delish! Love the calzone fillings, reminds me a fav pizza combo (that I think we will have tonight from our favorite pizza place: arugula, marscarpone, proscuitto, whole roasted garlic cloves, roasted eggplant on a tomato/mozz base--YUM!)

    You cut fruit with such pretty finesse, they sparkle like sweet jewels in your bentos. Happy holiday weekend!
