Zombie Calzone




About: Coffee/beer/cocktail lover, food ninja, pop culture humorist, mommy, nerd.

Corpsy McCalzone is the Zombie you can eat! He is a fun addition to any Halloween Party and he is rather simple to prepare to as well! I used the Roberta's pizza dough recipe, but you can use your favorite or store bought. I did add some steamed and pureed kale to my dough for maximum decomp look.

Step 1: Roll Dough and Cut

Roll your dough into a rectangle shape, cut down both sides to make arms, cut into a large V shape for the head, make several cuts for the rib cage, and two at the bottom for legs. Roll your legs up, you can add cheese like I did, just make sure to seal well to avoid leakage.

Step 2: Add Your Fillings

Add desired fillings to torso area, I used cooked fusilli , pepperoni, mushrooms and cheese. Then begin to braid over the dough. There is no one way to do this, so be creative.

Step 3: Fold Over Rib Cage

fold dough in a rib cage look, making sure to connect the pieces on the other side.

Step 4: Salami Flesh Wounds

I ripped small holes in the dough for the arms and legs and placed pieces of salami underneath!

Step 5: Details

I used more cooked pasta for the hair, purple onion for mouth, sunflower seed teeth, olive eyes, and a bouquet of parsley flowers!

Step 6: Cook and Serve With Bloody Bolganese

In a preheated 400 degree oven, cook your zombie for 15-18 minutes. Serve with your favorite marinara or bolganese! Eat him before he eats you!

    I think "SoylentGringo" could have some potential as well! LOL

    It was my CB radio "handle" a long time ago.

    I think some defunct Seattle band used it.
