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


Ingredients:

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 

Directions:  


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. 

Baking: 


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.
