Hot Apple Pie Calzone – Gluten Free


In a previous post, I mentioned how wonderful it was to find ready-made gluten free dough in my refrigerator section at the local supermarket.

This apple pie is wrapped in the new Pillsbury Gluten Free Pie and Pastry Dough.


It is flaky, butter and fairly easy to work with for a gluten free dough.

Before anyone gets too excited, you still can’t roll it out and pick it up with your hands to drape over the top of a pie with ease. It still acts like gluten free dough – which means it requires careful handling.

That being said, did I mention that it was ready-made dough? And if you’re in a hurry, you can skip the “completely from scratch” dough by stopping by the store on your way home from work and just picking up a tub of pastry dough to make a dessert?!

I’m sure that I am not the only long-term gluten free lifer out there who has a deep appreciation for this product and ones like it.

Let’s just say this made making dessert easy as pie. Literally.

Prepare apple pie filling.

Roll out dough.

Place in apple mixture in middle.

Fold dough over and crimp sides.





Hot Apple Pie Calzone - Gluten Free

1 large calzone - serves 2


  • 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced thin
  • 4 Gala apples, peeled and sliced thin
  • 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup pastry dough, gluten free
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp milk or water


  • Preheat oven to 425 deg F.
  • Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with gluten free cooking spray.
  • Mix together apples, lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon.
  • Roll out pastry dough on wax paper. (Extra gluten free flour on hand is helpful but not necessary for dusting and avoiding dough sticking to surface.)
  • Place apple mixture in center of dough and fold dough over in shape of a calzone.
  • Crimp the edges with a fork and slice air vents into the top.
  • For a golden brown crust, lightly brush lwith egg wash by whisking 1 egg with 1 Tbsp of milk or water. Brush across pastry. (Don't use too much where it is runny or mushy.)
  • Cover lightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove foil and bake another 10 minutes until golden brown and the apples are bubbly.
