Cook Method


2 (13.8-ounce) cans refrigerated pizza crust
1 (16-ounce) container LLOYD’S® Seasoned & Shredded Chicken in Original BBQ Sauce
1½ cups chopped green, red and/or yellow bell pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 tablespoon shredded cheddar cheese, divided


  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Unroll pizza crusts, one at a time, on a lightly floured surface. Roll each into a 12×12-inch square. Cut each into four 6-inch squares. Spoon a well-rounded tablespoon of the LLOYD’S® Seasoned Shredded Chicken in Original BBQ Sauce onto each of the eight squares. Top each with 2 tablespoons chopped bell pepper and 1 tablespoon of the cheese. Brush edges of the dough with milk.

  2. Fold dough in half to form a triangle over filling; press edges firmly with a fork to seal. Prick tops with forks. Brush tops lightly with milk.

  3. Line 2 baking sheets with foil and coat the foil lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Transfer filled calzones to baking sheets, brushed side up. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake on separate oven racks for 10 minutes or until golden brown, rotating baking sheets halfway through baking.
