This recipe is so simple! Talk about satisfying with minimal effort - A calzone is it. I've always been a more-cheese, less-sauce kind of girl with pizza so I'm a big fan of the cheese overload in a calzone! Ricotta = love. I love making pizza dough from scratch but if you're pressed for time you could always pick up the uncooked dough at your grocery store. Pictured here with Baked Zucchini Fries :)
Makes 4 servings
Total Time: 35 minutes
Pizza dough (enough for a large pizza)
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2.5 oz pepperoni (and/or whatever other fillings you want)
1. Roll out pizza dough to 1/3 to 1/2 inch thickness.
2. Spread cheeses and fillings on half of the rolled out dough leaving a 1 1/2 inch gap for the crust.
3. Fold dough over and pinch ends together. Fold ends over to create a crust and firmly seal the edges. Score the top of the calzone.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until the top of the calzone is golden brown. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping. Enjoy!
Roll out the pizza dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. Load up the fillings! Tonight I went with pepperoni but you could use any of your favorite pizza toppings!
Fold the dough over, pinch the edges shut, and then fold the edge like you're making a pizza crust.
My boyfriend INSISTED that you had to score the top. I didn't feel strongly either way, so the calzone got scored just for him :P
Side dish pictured here: Baked Zucchini Fries! Get some veggies in the meal if you can haha! Both are great for dipping in marinara sauce.
