True pizza lovers, such as myself, will definitely love this Turkey Pepperoni Calzone recipe. I often wish I could live like the Ninja Turtles and eat pizza everyday and all day but it’s not an achievable goal, unfortunately.
With turkey pepperoni you won’t miss the traditional pepperoni and when you pair that with tons of cheese and a soft crust – your portion control may go out the window! This is a great option for your next pizza night.
