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 9×13 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
- 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.
