The Chew: Tailgate Tank Homemade Hot Pocket Calzones

The Chew pitted three viewer recipes against one another, in a recipe contest judged by the crew. Dina’s Panzerotti Recipe was the winner, and she said that her calzone-style dish is perfect for game day because they are handheld and you can customize the fillings.

Michael Symon, who joined Dina in the kitchen, thought these were a great food to represent New York during Super Bowl weekend. Dina got the recipe from her mother, and she uses store-bought dough to keep it simple.

The Chew: Panzerotti Recipe Ingredients

  1. Prepare the dough or let it come to room temperature if you’re using store-bought dough.
  2. Separate it into sections and make six-inch circles on a flour-dusted prep surface.
  3. Place ricotta cheese in the center of each dough.
  4. Layer shredded mozzarella, prosciutto, and salami inside. (Use your own favorite deli meats.)
  5. Fold the dough over and pinch the edges to seal them, like you would with a calzone.
  6. Use a fork to create perfectly crimped edges all the way around.
  7. In a cast iron skillet, heat oil to about 360 F.
  8. Work in batches, frying panzerotti for about one or two minutes per side, until they become golden brown. Do not overcrowd the pan.
  9. For a fun alternative, brown ground beef or sausage with onions and tomato sauce in a pan to create another filling idea.
