Mini Calzones
Kids just love these pizza flavored snacks

Servings: 16

• 8 ounces lean Canadian bacon, chopped
• 4 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced thin
• 1/4 cup chopped onion (optional)
• 2 tablespoons fresh oregano, minced *
• 2 packages frozen pizza dough (like Pillsbury)
• 2 cups prepared pizza sauce
• 1 cup low fat, part skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
• 2 egg whites, beaten lightly

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cook mushrooms and onion (optional) in a large nonstick skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Cook over medium heat until tender. Add Canadian bacon and cook for two more minutes. Stir in minced oregano. Remove skillet from heat.

Remove pizza dough from package and divide into two pieces. Lightly flour counter top or surface and roll out each piece into an eight inch square. Cut each large square into 4 even smaller squares. These should be four inch square each.

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Move each square of dough to baking sheet and place 1 tablespoon sauce in center of square. Top with mushroom, onion and bacon mixture. Top with 1 tablespoon of cheese. Fold dough over to form a triangle, carefully stretching to cover. Pinch edges together and use a fork to press down on the edges to seal. Repeat with remaining squares of dough and filling. Brush tops with egg white. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the calzones are golden brown and puffed.

Remove from baking sheet. Arrange on serving platter. Cut in half and serve with warm pizza sauce if desired.

*Not as robust, but you can substitute 2 teaspoons dried oregano
