Baked Ricotta and Mozzarella Calzone…


Baked Ricotta and Mozzarella Calzone…I had some leftover ricotta cheese from making some bulk raviolis the other day.  I have been storing like a half a dozen pizza dough balls on call  in the freezer now so I can make pizza on the fly.


I rolled out a pizza dough and made 2 calzones stuffed with ricotta cheese and shredded mozzarella with red pepper flakes and fresh basil.  I am real happy with the way this came out.  The calzone was just the way I wanted.  It was light but still firm and a little chewy on the edges.  I ‘ve had calzones before where it just more dough than stuffing, and where it was just so thick, and dry.  This has a lot of potential for tasty stuffings, like my all time favorite – chicken rolls.
