Calzones

So i bought some pizza dough with the intention of using it for making cheese calzones. I can’t order them at any of the pizza places around town so I thought I should make it myself.

I used whole milk ricotta cheese with a little garlic powder, parsley, salt and pepper, and parmesan cheese mixed in. I do it to taste so I don’t have any measurements. I split a pre-made pizza dough into 4 pieces and rolled out 2 of them and saved 2 of them. I rolled them thin and put a spoonful of ricotta cheese on each one and put some mozzarella cheese on top of that. I closed them up and baked them at 400F for 15 minutes or until they are golden brown and delicious. 😀 I made a romaine salad with oil and vinegar as a side dish as well.

Calzones!

Well, it has been a while since I posted! I made some quick calzones tonight! Courtesy of Rachael Ray and the Food Network!

4 large, crusty Kaiser rolls
1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
Salt and pepper
1/4 pound salami, chopped
1/4 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano
8 slices fresh mozzarella
8 slices vine ripe tomato
8 fresh basil leaves, torn or sliced


Heat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Split the Kaiser rolls favoring the bottom half a little. Scoop a little of the white soft insides out of the bottoms. Season the ricotta with a little salt and pepper. Stir the salami and grated cheese into ricotta. Fill the rolls with the ricotta and salami. Cover the ricotta with mozzarella, tomato and basil. Set covers in place and bake to heat through 10 to 12 minutes. Cut and serve.

I made a few things different tho. I forgot about the tomato and basil so that didn’t get added on. I also added garlic and some oregano to the ricotta cheese mixture. I also didn’t put in any parmesan cheese. I think they need to cook a bit longer than 10-12 minutes. I had them in for almost 15 minutes and they weren’t heated all the way through. I thought they were delicious tho! 😀 I will probably add the tomatoes and basil next time plus the garlic and oregano I added to taste. The original recipe can be found here:
