These Cheesy Broccoli Calzones can be made in half an hour on a busy weeknight with the aid of store-bought dough. Pillsbury refrigerated pizza dough works, but many supermarkets carry locally prepared pizza dough that generally tastes better. Look in the refrigerator case or the freezer section for bags of dough. Many pizzerias also sell dough by the pound. We used frozen broccoli, which required no peeling or chopping, and saved valuable prep time. We blended sharp-tasting, briny feta cheese with mild mozzarella for a rich flavor and a creamy texture.

Serves 4 to 6

We had good results with Pillsbury refrigerated pizza dough, but ready-made dough from your local pizzeria is an even better choice. If you use the Pillsbury dough, simply unroll it and use the rectangular shape. If you like, serve the calzones with your favorite basic tomato sauce.
