Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).

Divide each ball of dough into 12 even pieces and roll each into a five-inch (12 cm) round. Place 12 rounds on two non-stick baking sheets. Spread sauce on half of each round, leaving a 1/2 inch (1 cm) edge.

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and broccoli and cook until lightly softened, 6 to 8 minutes.

Evenly divide red pepper, mushrooms and broccoli over sauce on the rounds. Sprinkle each with thyme, basil and Canadian Swiss. Fold remaining half over toppings, making half moons. Pinch dough around edges and fold up to seal well.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until calzones are golden brown.


Cooking Club Tip:Cool; label package with recipe name, date and heating instructions. When ready to serve, heat in conventional or toaster oven until heated through.

Add any diced, cooked meat, like ham, pepperoni, wieners, etc., that children like.

For a change of taste, use Canadian Emmental or Canadian-Swiss.
