Lindsay Peppers from Lucky Supermarkets – Calzone Pepper Pockets Recipe


cbias disclosure

Grocery shopping at Lucky Supermarkets or Save Mart Supermarkets? You don’t have to ask me twice – I love both of these stores! I am fortunate to have two houses, where I split my time. At our second home, there is a Save Mart right around the corner, and at our primary residence, Lucky is just a hop, skip and jump away!

I visited my local Lucky Supermarket in search of Lindsay Peppers. Although I have purchased them before, and have included them in a variety of recipes, I was looking for a specific jar of peppers this time. I decided to create a new recipe, Calzone Pepper Pockets, and wanted to use Lindsay Sliced Sweet Banana Peppers. I didn’t want the flavor to be overwhelming in this recipe, but more subtle.

My Lucky Supermarket didn’t have all of the Lindsay Pepper varieties, but they did have the one I needed. I would like to see their shelves with all of the different peppers, as I would love to include them in other recipes.

There are so many yummy pizza dough recipes online, but I decided to use a Bobby Flay pizza dough recipe. Of course you could use pre-made store bought pizza dough too, if you want to save a little time. I, however, have been craving a good home made pizza dough lately.


Pizza dough
Lindsay Sliced Sweet Banana Peppers (or Lindsay Peppers of your choice)
Pizza Sauce
Cheese (I used a 3-cheese blend), grated
Olive oil
Garlic Powder (to taste)
Parmesan cheese (to taste)

The sky is the limit really – you can add whatever you like in your Calzone Pepper Pocket! Some other things that would be really good are Canadian bacon, regular bacon, pepperoni, salami, feta cheese, spinach, etc.

Divide the pizza dough into golf ball size pieces.

On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of pizza dough very thin and add about a tablespoon of pizza sauce (you can use more or less, depending on your preference).

On one half of each pocket, sprinkle shredded cheese over one-half.

Continuing on just one half of your pocket, layer the remaining ingredients, starting with the flattest items (ie: spinach, salami).

Add another sprinkling of shredded cheese over the toppings.

Fold the empty half of the pocket over the fillings and seal with a dab of water (I use my finger and swipe water on the bottom edges).

Press edges down with a fork, and make sure the pockets are sealed completely.

Place pockets on a cookie sheet or baking stone. Brush each pocket lightly with olive oil (this will add a nice sheen to the finished product!) and sprinkle with garlic powder and/or parmesan cheese.

Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

My gosh these are good! The Lindsay Peppers add such a nice flavor, and really make these Calzone Pepper Pockets come to life. If you like to live on the edge, you could use another variety of Lindsay Peppers. Each jar of peppers states whether they are mild, medium or hot.

  1. My husband loves peppers, so I’ll have to make this for him! This looks delicious! I also like that you used mushrooms in it, too!

    I have never had jar peppers. I think I need to buy some because I love fresh peppers but hate how long they take to cook to soften enough for the kiddos to eat. Jarred would be perfect!

  3. I like the Lindsay Peppers because I can get them mild. And this recipe is so delicious, and I want to make it for my family. I know that they would love for me to make this. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. My husband can’t get enough of the Sliced jalapeno’s ..In fact, he added them to my shopping list again yesterday. These look really good, my family loves Calzones.

  5. I’m not a big fan of banana peppers, and actually think green peppers are more complimentary for sandwiches or calzones. To each their own.

  6. sounds like a great recipe. and I am glad these peppers are in a glass jar, I was just reading about tin cans being unhealthy.

  7. I love the idea of the calzone. I prefer banana peppers in my sandwhich with meat, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, oil and vinegar.

  8. My husband loves banana peppers. He will eat them right out of the jar. I love your calzone recipe. I never thought to brush the top with olive oil. Thanks for the hnt.

  10. This recipe looks so good! I love banana peppers, never tried Lindsay’s yet, but certainly going to search for them now, thanks! 🙂

  11. This isn’t something I would like (not a big fan of cheese other than mozzarella, banana peppers are way too spicy/sour/hot for me & I don’t like pepperoni) but this recipe is right up my Father’s alley.

  12. Oh boy that calzone looks amazing!!! Me and hubby are banana pepper lovers they taste great in a sandwich never thought to use them this way!

    Those look amazing! We love their Pepperoncinis and Banana Peppers. If we make pizza, we must have one of those as a topping or on the side.

  15. Tami Vollenweider on

    I’ve never used peppers in a jar before,but I’m a big fan of banana peppers and this way would be a quicker way to use them! They look YUMMY!

  16. This looks and sounds so yummy! You know, I LOVE Lindsay olives….they’re the only ones I buy. And I LOVE banana peppers, but for some reason I’ve never bought Linday’s before! I’m definitely going to try this out! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  17. These look so good. We always have banana peppers (mild of course for me) in the house. We have the slices for pizzas, salads, nachos and then we have the full peppers as hubby likes to have a couple if we order out pizza.

  18. What time is dinner? 🙂 I honestly didn’t know they made anything other than olives. But my husband would swoon with delight if I made these. He just loves peppers of any kind.

  19. My husband is crazy for banana peppers, so I am going to surprise him by making this. He will be in heaven when he bites into it!

  20. I never had sweet banana peppers until I met my husband….he’s from the south. The are my favorite now!!! I did not know that they came in different heat levels…I have never heard of the product..ill have to look the next time we go shopping to see if we have them here in PA.

  21. Sarah Marshall on

    These look great and luckily for me they don’t seem to challenging to prepare! I am not a fan of hot peppers, but I think I would enjoy these prepared with the mild peppers.

  22. I had no idea all these peppers were available so easily! My sweet husband loves these so I’ll definitely look for them.
