Line the sheet pans with parchment paper.


Lay 8 pizza crusts on each pan. Allow the crusts to thaw 10-15 minutes.


Use a #12 scoop to portion 1½ ounces of mozzarella cheese on half of the crust and spread it around. Do not spread the cheese all the way to the edges of the crust.


Use a 1 ounce ladle to spoon the sauce over cheese.


Top each calzone with 7 slices of pepperoni.


Fold the empty half of dough on top of the filled half of dough. Press the edges together with a fork, a pastry crimper, or your fingers to form a seal all the way around the open edge.


Make a 2-inch slit on the top with a sharp knife. This will allow steam to escape.
Spray with butter food release spray.


Bake at 425 degrees F in oven for 6 -9 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
