This is just a simple recipe I quickly put together in honor of St. Patrick's Day. After dinner, my husband said he ate too much, so I guess they were a hit! I used the homemade pizza dough I always use; you could use frozen dough, dough from a can or puff pastry.
Roll out pizza dough into small rounds. For each calzone, place four slices of thinly sliced corn beef and 1-2 slices of swiss cheese on one half of the dough round. Add saurkraut and some Thousand Island Dressing "dressed up" or whatever sauce or dressing you like to put on a Reuben. For "dressed up" Thousand Island Dressing: mix 1/2 cup of Thousand Island dressing, two tablespoons mayonnaise, and 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar. Fold the dough over the calzone ingredients and seal the edges. You may wish to brush the dough, using a pastry brush with olive oil. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or bake at 500 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Serve with additional "dressed-up" Thousand Island dressing and, of course, a pickle. Enjoy!
