Apple Pie Calzones

Apple Pie Calzones Apple Pie Calzones Fall baking is dreamy; there’s no denying it! That being said, it can also be fussy, expensive, and time consuming. I mean, sometimes you just want a snappy sweet fix without all the hassle, right?

I got YOU covered!

Apple Pie Calzones

Apple pie calzones are all the awesome of apple pie, minus the mountains of mess.

The recipe I’ve listed below is very basic, but bakes up dreamy little pie pockets! Feel free to add a dash of vanilla extract or even something a little funkier like golden raisins or walnuts. Get creative!

Oh, and vanilla ice cream on top… Do it ;)

Apple Pie Calzones

Apple Pie Calzones – Baker by Nature

Makes 4 calzones

1 pizza dough, broken into 4 even pieces

6 apples, cored, peeled, and thinly spiced

2/3 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

For the calzone coating:

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

2 tablespoons sugar + 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon mixed together


Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F).

Peel, core, and thinly slice your apples. In a small bowl combine brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Toss the apples together with the sugar mixture, making sure all the slices get coated.

On a lightly floured surface roll pizza dough into 8″ thin circles. Fill one side of each circle with 1/4 of the apple mixture, then fold the dough over the filling and pinch the edges closed to seal. You can also crimp them shut with a fork!

Brush the tops of each calzone with a small amount of melted butter, and sprinkle with 1/2 tablespoon of the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Place calzones on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and bake for 15-18 minutes. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, and eat warm!
