Pita Calzones

I received free samples of Toufayan Pita mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Toufayan Bakeries and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

 

When I opened the box I received from Toufayan Bakeries, I might have squealed a little bit. It was like Christmas! Pita Heaven!

Toufayan Bakeries is a family-owned bakery in the US that makes more than 100 delicious products. They use old-world recipes with only top quality, wholesome ingredients. Toufayan Pita is naturally cholesterol-free and trans-fat free, and they also contain an impressive amount of fiber and protein. With such a remarkable nutritional profile, it’s easy to give your favorite recipes a healthy makeover with pita bread.

I received six different pita varieties– I’ve tried and love them all– but the sweet onion pita in particular were calling out to me. It was a tough choice, but the deciding factor was the smell: oh my goodness, so delicious.

There are so many creative ways to eat pitas– as sandwiches, as pizzas, dipped in spreads, paired with soups– but I recently finished doing a marathon re-watch of Parks and Recreation, so I knew exactly what I was going to make: pita calzones.

Calzones are one of those things that sound a little bit more complicated to make than they actually are, and using pita bread as a handy shortcut makes things even easier! Just mix your filling ingredients together, stuff the pita, and bake– you’re ready to go!

And let’s be honest: it’s hard to go wrong with bread, sauce, and cheese.

    Oh I used to love a good calzone! Going vegan has left me sad about that. I would have never thought to make one out of a pita – very clever! And healthier too. I love the sound of this.
