Calzones

On Friday I made calzones so I could use up some ricotta cheese leftover from when we made eggplant rollatini.


I had planned to just do pepperoni and olives in the filling, but when I was looking for the mozzarella in the cheese drawer I found some deli ham that needed to be used up. I diced the ham and mixed it with 2 cups ricotta, grated Pecorino cheese, diced mozzarella, diced pepperoni and sliced black olives. I tasted for seasoning and added salt and pepper and once it tasted right I added one beaten egg.


I stuffed half the filling into each round of dough (I cut one of my frozen doughs in half then rolled both halves out until they were nice and thin), then folded the other half over and crimped the edges. The whole calzone got a brush of oil and more grated cheese, then went into a 550 degree oven for about 15 minutes until the crust was golden brown.

Pin It!

  1. Yuuuuum. This is another one of those good weeknight meals I always meant to make, but tried to plan gourmet crap instead. Wednesday or Thursday, I'm going to give it a try!
