Pulled Pork Calzone #EasyRecipes

This recipe is simple, yet so delicious!  Pizza dough full of flavor, slow cooked pulled pork, veggies, cheese and serious butter love… Perfect!  Why wouldn’t I share the recipe, right?  Hubby and I try to make something special during the weekends.  Since the weather is cooler, it gets a little trickier to use our outside roasting box.  So, instead, we pulled out our roasting box that sits right on our counter.  Everything about pork cooking inside is a plus, especially the way the house smells during the cooking process.  Adding it to our calzones was beyond delicious.  Who wants to share this huge Pulled Pork Calzone with me?

I try to share more involved recipes here on the blog, but sometimes you have to go simple.  There is nothing intense or earth shattering about this recipe, besides being AMAZING.  I did feel that the calzones were beyond gorgeous and deserved to be showcased in someway.  Here are a couple other simple recipes that had to be shared on CafeTerraBlog: Wood-Smoked Beef Brisket Nachos, Apple Cardamom Dessert Pizza, and Bourbon Cherry Sipper.

For Pork Shoulder:
8 lb pork shoulder (pork butt)
1 cup chicken stock
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
6 cloves of garlic, diced
Rub mix (chili pepper, cumin, salt, pepper, brown sugar) (You can use your own mix for the rub)
For Calzones:
Pre-made dough
Mozzarella cheese
Bell peppers
Ro-tel (spicy diced tomatoes in a can)
Pulled pork
Melted butter (for top of calzone before baking)


Prepare pork shoulder: Slather outside with mustard, then add rub mix all over.

In roasting box or roasting pan, add chicken stock, onions, garlic, and prepared pork shoulder. Let cook 30 minutes per pound at 350 degrees, about four hours for 8 pound shoulder. Check temperature if possible, should be above 165. Pull apart meat.

For calzones, spread out dough, add ingredients to one side- pork, mushrooms, bell peppers, diced tomatoes, and cheese. Fold dough over ingredients and carefully ensure sides are sealed. Top with melted butter. Bake for about 30 minutes depending on oven, until golden brown, and dough is fully cooked.

Let sit for five minutes and enjoy!
