This one is hot off the presses, an email from Red Sky Grilling that I received just a few days ago. Thought that if the weather outside isn’t too frightful, then maybe a New Years Day treat for the visiting in-laws or relatives might just be the trick. Now I love Calzones and never even though to do this with my Red Sky Pizza Stone! Let alone, do the with breakfast fillings and have them to start the day!

Here is the recipe and as a special promotion, BBQ Pro Shop is running a sale on the stones to help spread the word, comments are welcome, especially if you try the recipe!

Brunch Calzones on the Red Sky Pizza Stone

The first time we grilled a calzone on the Grilled Pizza Stone, we had no idea how amazing it would taste!  It’s a delicious crowd pleaser that can be served hot off the grill or made ahead of time and served at room temperature.  (You’ll enjoy it as next-day refrigerator leftovers, too!)

Breakfast is our favorite meal, and we couldn’t resist firing up the Red Sky Grilled Pizza Stone for a Sunday morning treat.  These calzones were very easy to make, and would be a perfect meal to serve hungry house guests for breakfast or a late morning brunch. The wood smoke from the grill really wakes up traditional breakfast ingredients!

Our objective was to create grilled breakfast calzones combining a raw egg with popular breakfast fillings like sausage, bacon, ham, cheese, etc. and cook the calzone to perfection on the Grilled Pizza Stone.

Sample Fillings

Breakfast sausage-browned in a sauté pan      

Bacon, thick cut-cooked                                        

Canadian bacon-sliced                                          

Ham (leftover holiday ham is a treat!)              

Chorizo – sliced and cooked in a sauté pan        

Southwestern style vegetarian pinto beans  

Sample Cheeses

Pepperjack (Monterey Jack with jalapeños)-shredded

Smoked Mozzarella-shredded

Extra Sharp Cheddar-shredded

Swiss-sliced

Fontina-shredded

Goat cheese

Ingredients

4 – 5 Extra large fresh eggs – cracked into a bowl, beaten slightly and seasoned with salt and pepper

Shredded cheese of your choosing

Prepared filling of your choosing

2 lbs fresh pizza dough divided into 7 – 8 balls about the size of a baseball.

Olive oil, salt and pepper

Flour for dusting work surface

Cornmeal for dusting platter

Pre-heat your Red Sky Grilled Pizza Stone. Add cheese to egg mixture and stir. Flour your work surface, roll out dough ball into a rough rectangular shape.  Season dough with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Add 3-4 tablespoons of filling to dough, then 3-4 tablespoons of cheese/egg mixture.

Fold the dough over the toppings.  To seal the edges, pinch and pull the dough with your fingers, all the way around.  Gently pick up the calzone, and transfer it to a cookie sheet or pizza peel sprinkled with cornmeal.

Carefully place the calzone onto the Grilled Pizza Stone, being careful not to touch the pizza stone, as it is very hot.

Replace the lid of the grill, and after approximately 5-7 minutes, flip the calzone using grill tongs.  Again, replace the lid of the grill, and grill another 5-7 minutes.  Use grill tongs to place the calzone on a plate and let it rest for 5 minutes.  Cut and serve hot!
