How to Make a S'mores Calzone
Pizza Loves Emily, master of dough, shares its sweet and gooey calzone
Brooklyn favorite Pizza Loves Emily is known for many things. The pizza, first and foremost, is some of the best in the city, the renowned Emmy burger tops almost all of NYC's burger lists and—pro tip—you really shouldn't leave without having tried the wings. But after all is said and done, there's one more thing worth saving room for: the s'mores calzone.
This signature sweet treat is made with the same sized chunk of dough that goes into the restaurant's addictive pizza. Meaning: It's huge. Pie master Matt Hyland stuffs a pocket of dough full of marshmallows and chocolate before throwing it into the wood-fired oven to bubble, char and melt into nostalgic gooeyness.

Luckily for everyone, the process seems straightforward enough that a version can easily be pulled off from the comfort of home (sans wood-fired oven, of course).
Crank your oven up as high as it will go. Take a sheet pan or pizza stone and place it in oven until it's blazing hot. Allow your homemade or store-bought pizza dough to rest while your oven comes to temp.
When the oven and dough are ready, stretch out the dough to form a circle about the size of an average pizza. Place a big handful of marshmallows on top of the dough, then scatter a handful of good-quality chocolate over the marshmallows.
Fold the top half of the dough circle to meet the bottom half and crimp the edges to tightly seal the calzone.
Carefully place the calzone onto your hot pizza stone or sheet pan and bake for approximately 10 minutes or until golden and crisp.
Serve with a sprinkle of crushed graham crackers.
