    Main Dish



Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.

Sauté the mushrooms in a skillet until the mushrooms give up their juice and are brown. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the chicken and the pesto and toss to combine.

Divide the pizza dough in half and roll each section into a circle on a floured surface.

To assemble the calzones, spread half of the chicken onto the bottom 1/3 of each round of dough. Top each chicken mixture with the mushrooms and Swiss cheese. Take the top portion of dough and fold over. Press to seal.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the outside is golden brown. Slice and serve.
