These easy Chicken Alfredo Calzones are loaded with meat, vegetables, and cheese. Little stuffed pizza pockets made from biscuit dough are the perfect recipe for game day or for dinner time with kids.
Our family loves Friday pizza night. We usually have some sort of pizza and watch movies or play games every weekend. There are a few weeks that we change it up and order out, but for the most part we make our easy homemade pizza dough, and everyone creates their own personal pizza.
Since pizza for dinner is always a winner, I knew our kiddos would love these little hand-held cheesy calzones in the middle of the week.
This week I had some canned chicken that needed to be used up, so I mixed up some vegetables, sauce, and cheese and folded it into biscuits.
Refrigerated biscuits are a life saver sometimes. I usually have a few different ones floating around in the fridge for quick and easy meals.
How to make Chicken Alfredo Calzones:
- Stir together chicken, bacon, veggies, cheese, and Alfredo sauce.
- Flatten each biscuit out to 5 inches.
- Put ½ cup of the chicken mixture on one half of each dough circles.
- Stretch the dough over the chicken and use a fork to press the dough together.
- Bake for about 14 minutes.
- Brush the cooked calzones with a light coat of melted butter and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.
BRUCREW TIP: If you are serving these as your main meal or as game day snacks, you may want to double the recipe. 8 biscuits don't go very far when hungry hoards attack them.

Can these be made ahead and baked then frozen for later?
I'm actually not sure. We devoured them right away, so there weren't any leftovers.
Looks great! I was going to print it but the big ad in the middle wouldn't go away and messed up the print. 🙁
I am so sorry about that. I am working to find a fix for that problem!
Kentuckylady717 says , So delicious looking...my granddaughter Faith loves calzones...she will enjoy helping me make them 🙂
This is definitely going to be a fun one for you guys to make together!
I love Calzones, I've never tried to make them at home though! Might be a fun recipe to try out, thanks for sharing!!
Using the refrigerated dough make them so much easier too!

What a fun test with the tomatoes. I had not realized there was such a difference!! These Calzones look yummy!!
It really was fun to compare them. We did it when I was at the headquarters, but I enjoyed doing it at home and seeing the same results.

I love calzones, and usually make spinach and cheese- so this is something different!
Since I'm Italian, people often ask me how to make homemade tomato sauce as they don't like theirs as much as mine, and to me, one of the cardinal sins of sauce making is using that "other" brand! I tasted them once, and that was the last time. You should be able to stick your finger in tomatoes and taste it without making a sour face! 😉
Oh, I like the sound of spinach and cheese, but I don't think my kiddos would. Maybe I can do a partial batch next time for me. I totally agree about the tomatoes!!

They look incredible and it's definitely something my whole family would enjoy.
Thank you! I hope your family enjoys them as much as mine did!
Oh yum! This sounds so good! I have not made calzones in a really long time!
I hadn't made them in quite a while either. It was a fun change up for dinner.
Those look delish! We have pizza on Fridays too. Can't go wrong with Calzones! Those tomatoes look awesome. I'll need to see if they are in my store. I don't recognize the brand.
Friday and pizza just go together like peanut butter and jelly! I hope you can find the Red Gold...I really do prefer them over any other brand.
