Hump Day Snack: Basketball Calzones

By: Jamie Lisanti

The many many busted brackets of the first week of March Madness means that nobody's taking home Warren Buffet’s $1 billion prize. Still, we think this recipe for mini basketball calzones will score big in game-day snacking. Using store-bought pizza dough, these calzones are baked inside of a cake-pop pan and brushed with a mixture of butter and orange food-coloring to create mini, pizza-stuffed basketballs that look pretty close to the real thing. Serve them up with a bowl of warm marinara sauce for dipping while you kick back and watch the Sweet Sixteen battle it out for a spot in the next round of college hoops.
