Recipe - Calzone Rolls

We tried a new recipe this past week and it was a winner, with everyone. Sadly my little guys who used to eat everything like champs have become a little picky. As of late, dinnertime usually doesn't end with cleared plates and full bellies. But with these calzone rolls, the boys ate everything on their plate and even asked for seconds. Greg loved how meaty they are; I loved how easy they were to prepare. We will definitely be making them again.

Calzone Rolls

2 loaves frozen bread dough, thawed
1/2 pound sliced ham
1/2 pound sliced hard salami
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup jarred marinara sauce

Roll each loaf of dough into a rectangle about 8 inches by 12 inches.  Layer ham and salami down the center of each rolled loaf lengthwise.  Top meats with 1 cup shredded mozzarella for each roll.  Fold short ends of each loaf in about 1/2 inch and seal. Roll from the long sides and pinch well to seal the entire loaf. You should have 2 long rolls.  Bake, seam side down on a greased baking sheet in a 375 degree F oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Cut each roll into 8 slices and serve with marinara for dipping.
