Homemade Calzone

Tired of spending way too much for a great Calzone at your local pizza place. Check out this recipe where you to can make your own Calzone.  

We make Calzones or Pizza usually once a week.  Here is my tried and true recipes for you to use.  Start by preheating the oven to 480 degrees. Make your own Home-made Pizza Crust.  Simple, easy and quick. This is a great meal to add to your Meal Planning.

Calzones Recipe:  Makes 3, 4 inch Calzones


1 cup small-curd cottage cheese or ricotta cheese
3 tablespoons grated Parmeasan cheese
1 large egg
1 teaspoon parsley, oregano or basil (or if your like me add all three)
1 teaspoon of Garlic powder
20 slices of pepperoni cut into 4
2 cups of Hot Italian sausage or other meat cooked (optional)
1 cup of shredded cheese (I like pepper jack)
Pizza dough for one pizza 


Stir together all the ingredients except for the pizza dough.  
Divide the pizza dough into three and roll out into circle about 1/4 inch thick.
Spoon 1/3 of the other ingredients mixture on each circle and fold dough over filling pressing the edges to seal and then rolling them up. 


Place on a baking sheet or a pizza stone and prick holes in the top with a fork.  Used brushed egg white on the tops of the calzones for crispier crust. Cook  for about 10-15 minutes.  You can serve alone or with warm Pasta or Pizza sauce.
