Braided Enchilada Calzone


  • pizza dough unbaked
  • Verde enchilada sauce
  • Shredded chicken, pork or chorizo cooked
  • Roasted green chilies of your choice
  • Cheese of your choice
  • 1 egg white whipped

Preheat oven at 350 Degrees F

Role out your pizza dough rectangle shaped on a rectangle cookie sheet.

Using kitchen scissors, cut at a slant down each side strips. Make sure the strips leaves plenty of filling room in the middle. Do not cut them off.

Spread your enchilada sauce down the middle.

Now spread your cooked meat sparingly.

Add your roasted chilies on the middle strip.

Sprinkle cheese over the items in the middle strip.

Now “braid” your dough. Starting with end pull one strip to the opposite side at an angel. Now take one strip from the other side and down over at an angle towards yourself. Do this until all strips are crisscrossed. Tuck the ends under the crisscrosses at the end.

Brush with whipped egg whites.

Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 30 minutes.

Once golden brown remove from oven sprinkle with shredded cheese of your choice.

Sprinkle with a touch of ancho powder if you like.

Serve warm.
