Baby Dessert Calzones

Guava and Cheese
4 oz. guava
4 oz. sharp cheese (I used an Asiago, Parmesan, and Fontina blend; sharp cheddar is also good)

Chocolate, Macadamia Nut, Coconut (Vegan)
1/8 cup coconut
1/8 cup macadamia nuts
4 squares dark chocolate
1/4 teaspoon turbinado sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon chili powder

Sweet Coconut
4 teaspoons sweetened condensed milk
1/8 cup coconut
dash of cinnamon

whole wheat pizza dough (I used store bought)
bench flour

*Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F
*Split the dough into four portions and then split each portion into four smaller portions. Makes 16 baby calzones.
*Use bench flour to stretch each piece of dough into round

*fill half of each disk with filling, flip top over, seal with fork
*bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown disks

*Prep fillings (cut guava paste, nuts, etc.)

I sprinkled cheese on the top of the guava and cheese calzone, sealed the sweet coconut calzone with the seam facing upwards so that the sweetened condensed milk would not spill out, and topped the chocolate calzone with the spice mixture mentioned above.

Note: the guava-cheese combo is known as Romeo and Juliet in Brazil, because the flavors are perfect together.
