Easy Calzones

 

We had lots of lasagne ingredients left after making lasagne a few days ago, and so tonight we turned them into calzones.  I grilled them – it’s too hot to turn on even the toaster oven – but they would work well baked, too.

These are super simple:

1/2 batch of pizza dough
1/2 batch of ricotta cheese (15 oz tub of ricotta mixed with one egg)
1/2 c. chopped ham
1 c. grated mozzerella
Italian seasoning to taste
marina sauce for dipping

Roll out 1/4 of your pizza dough into a small circle.  Spoon 1/4 of the ricotta mixture onto  half of it and top with chopped ham, a bit of mozzerella, and a dash of Italian seasoning.  Fold the dough over to make a pocket and pinch it closed. (I did this with a fork to seal the edges.)  Repeat 3 times.

On a greased cookie sheet, bake at 350 degrees until dough is baked and crispy.  Serve with a side of marinara.

** I think this would be yummy with spinach in it, as well, but the store was out when I shopped for it.  Maybe next time!

Do you like calzones, or are you more of a straight-up pizza person??
