Pizza, Calzones and Stromboli are notorious for being unhealthy. Why not try out this healthier version of a calzone that uses pita bread as the base for a shortcut version that can be prepared in a matter of minutes.  The end result is just as tasty with nice crispy edges, but easier on the waistline. Even better? You can fully customize it with whatever pizza toppings you like best. There are no wrong combos! This is an easy recipe to get everyone involved, since each can make their own bowl of filling, kids and adults alike!
