Ready for a two in one dish? Use the same dough to cook a calzone and half-a-pizza at the same time. Add pretty much the same, classic ingredients to both: tomato paste and ham. Fill the calzone part with grated mozzarella but add to the pizza part the mozzarella balls. They’ll melt, leaving a dot pattern on the pizza.
