We were in Beaches Negril in September for My 14 year old’s golden birthday. There were a lot of favorite food, but one in particular was from the brick oven pizza place. It was a calzone stuffed with banana and nutella. I do not have a brick oven pizza but wanted to try to make these. Ninja Foodi or Ninja Grill to the rescue again. The Ninja Foodi Chocolate Banana Calzone cooked up in 15 minutes and was oh so good. Now if I could just figure out how to get the beach waves in the background it would be even more perfect.
I used the round pan of my Ninja Foodi baking kit on a trivet with the Air Fryer basket removed. It was a perfect fit. The Calzone cooked perfectly to a golden brown. The center was melted and wonderful. I might add a little more banana next time. Or I may try with marshmallows and graham cracker pieces for a Smore Calzone.
Ninja Foodi Chocolate Banana Calzone Steps
This uses just three ingredients. Pizza dough (I used Pillsbury roll dough), Nutella and banana. Simply spread out the canned dough and roll it to be a little thinner. Spread Nutella on the dough and slice banana on top. Pull the long sides of the dough up to meet and pinch the seam closed. Close the ends by folding them up and pinching closed.
Lightly spray the round pan form the baking kit. Gently lift the calzone into the pan putting in a circle. If the ends meet that is fine if not they should at least be close. Turn on the Ninja Foodi or Ninja Grill to Air Crisp at 390 degrees. Cook for 15 minutes.
When complete carefully flip the pan on to your serving plate. Slice in but know the Nutella in the Ninja Foodi Chocolate Banana Calzone s very hot and will burn your mouth. I always have to convince my kids to give it a minute.
