Family Style Calzone


This is adapted from an old Pampered Chef recipe that I use to make all the time.  The original recipe is a large rectangular shaped calzone made in a 9x13 pan.  I made this "fancy" by making it look like a really huge traditional calzone.

I haven't made this in years and I had forgotten how good this is. We both loved the herbed crust and the creamy filling.  This was a nice change to our usual pizza night. I am going to have to add this back into the rotation.




Family Style Calzone
adapted from Pampered Chef
(Printable Recipe)

1 can refrigerated pizza dough
7 1/2 oz ricotta cheese
3 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 oz parmesan cheese
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 egg white
Fillings of your choice - we used turkey pepperoni and sausage
pizza sauce for dipping

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Mix together all cheeses, Italian seasoning and egg white.  Roll out pizza dough into a large circle on parchment paper.  Spread the cheese mixture over half of the pizza dough to within one inch of edge.  Sprinkle cheese with your meat and/or veggies.  Fold the opposite side of the dough over the filling and pinch edges to seal.  Bake for 25 minutes.  Allow to cool and serve with pizza sauce.

*I brushed the calzone with some olive oil and Italian Seasoning during the last 5 minutes of baking.

  2. As you know, I don't do dough, but I've been dying to make a calzone. We have a little Italian place about an hour away that makes the best. I want to try to imitate some of their fillings since it's not convenient to visit. Thanks for this recipe Stephanie.

  6. I'll be taking some tips from this. We tried making our first calzone this week and while it was good, wasn't great. I think the seasoned crust would have been the difference.
