Buffalo Chicken Calzone

I made two giant calzones and it was really too spicy for me (I think it was our brand of wing sauce) and now I have a whole one sitting in my fridge that has been left uneaten.

1 pound chicken breasts
1 8 ounce package of cream cheese
handfuls of mexican cheese blend
half of a small onion, diced
minced garlic
1 cup wing sauce
1 roll of Pillsbury thin crust pizza dough (Its the long tube of dough in the refrigerated section)This is the same dough I use for pepperoni rolls
2 tablespoons melted butter
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In a wok cook the chicken, breaking up the breasts into bite sized pieces, add the garlic and onion to the wok.
Remove the chicken mixture and put it in a large sauce pan on the stove top. Add the wing sauce and cream cheese and mix everything together until cream cheese is melted.
Spray a baking sheet well with olive oil spray
Lay out the pizza dough
Cut the pizza dough into two equal pieces
Use a brush and brush the pizza dough with butter
Add a layer of cheese to the dough
Spoon on the chicken mixture. We had a little too much mixture so we put the extra in a small tupperware container.
Then I pulled the edges of the dough over and pinched them tightly together
I cut a slit in the top of each calzone
Next I brushed each calzone with a bit of olive oil
Then bake!

Bake until the pizza dough is browned, about 20 minutes
