Kids love pizza. So what's the next best thing? Calzone.

We will make our own pizza sauce with thinned tomato paste, a bit of honey and Parmesan, garlic and some spices.

There will be string cheese strung out all over inside after they bake, and spicy sausages nestled up next to it.

The outside will be simple biscuits, but it's the inside that makes it special.

Somehow i have the feeling no one is going to complain about cooking class today.
