Grizz, Panda, and Ice Bear need to turn a profit… Let’s learn how to make their signature CALZONES together! But please, try to avoid feeding the local wildlife 😉
1 package/can refrigerated pizza dough
1 package Pancetta
1 package prosciutto
1 cup mushrooms
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp basil
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Makes 3-4 calzones
Begin by preparing the calzone fillings – cut up the prosciutto and pancetta, oil a pan, and sautee on medium heat. Add chopped shallots, saute for a few more minutes, and then add the mushrooms, thyme, and pepper. Keep stirring until the shallots become translucent.
In a separate pot we’ll be making our white sauce. On medium heat, melt the butter, then add the milk and heavy cream, minced garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Finally, add your shredded parmesan cheese and give it a good stir. When it has fully melted, pour the white sauce into the pan with the meats and veggies and stir everything together. Chop up some fresh basil and set your ingredients aside.
Loosen up some pizza dough and roll it out enough to fold over itself for the calzone. Layer on a little mozarrella cheese, add some of our meaty mixture, sprinkle with parmesan, and finally add your chopped basil on top.
Brush the edges with an egg wash and carefully fold over the calzone pressing the edges to seal it. Cut out little divots around the border and three slits on top to match the look of the calzones from the show. Brush the whole thing with melted butter and let it bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 375 degrees F.
Voila! Delicious We Bare Bears calzones! Feel free to experiment with your favorite pizza toppings–because after all–a calzone is just a folded pizza! You can have a red sauce base, make it vegetarian, or just filled with gooey melted cheeses!
