“If you are a pizza fan you'll love this! It's mega popular with the teen set I can tell you. Prep does not include making the dough.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare 1 recipe pizza dough (I use'd the dough cycle on the bread machine) and let it rise.
  2. While Dough Rises, Prepare Filling:
  3. In a medium frying pan heat tomato oil over moderate heat, add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft but not browned.
  4. Mix in garlic, then remove from heat.
  5. In a medium bowl mix ricotta cheese with dried tomatoes and parsley.
  6. Stir in cooked onion mixture.
  7. Divide dough into two equal portions.
  8. Roll each half out on a floured surface to a 12-inch circle.
  9. Spread half of the ricotta filling over half of each circle of dough, leaving about a 1/2-inch margin.
  10. Sprinkle half of each circle with half of the meat strips and 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese.
  11. Fold circles in halves over filling, moistening and pinching edges together (or pressing with tines of a fork) to seal.
  12. Preheat oven to 450~ F.
  13. Sprinkle a large, greased baking sheet lightly with cornmeal.
  14. Place calzones well apart on prepared baking sheet.
  15. Let rise until puffy (12 to 15 minutes).
  16. Bake to a deep golden color (about 20 mins).
  17. Brush tops lightly with olive oil, then serve hot.
