    HeliWif's Note:

    Not your usual red tomato sauce calzone. This recipe came from my mother who had clipped it out of a magazine eons ago. This has been a family favorite since I can remember! With simple alterations to recipe, I'm sure you can add any of your favorite ingredients!

      Made for Freezer Tag 2008, Ham Calzone, “Ham Calzones�, Since I live in Denmark, frozen dough is not an option, Danes pride themselves on making things from scratch, so I made my usual Calzone dough, from “Easy Calzone Dough (Bread Machine)�. Followed the filling recipe exactly, and what a wonderful filling. First batch I filled with the ham, second batch filled with Italian sausage, mushrooms, and black olives. I had made a double batch, thinking there would be plenty to freeze. Think again. Just shows how good it was. I froze them wrapped individually in plastic wrap and placed them in a plastic bag. I also put about 1/3 cup of pasta sauce in sandwich sized ziploc bags and put them in with the calzones. I tried reheating a couple of ways--the best was to wrap it in a paper towel and put it in the microwave on defrost for 2-3 minutes and then on high for another 2-3 minutes. You do loose the fresh bread / crust, but the filling is still wonderful. Thank you for posting.

      These were very good. I used Homemade Buns for the dough so mine were whole wheat. I also used a little less ricotta and a little more mozzarella. These would be good with all sorts of fillings. I made 14 calzones and was able to get three meals out of it. Thanks.

      Absolutely wonderful taste if you love ricotta like I do (if not, it can be a bit much). I had some trouble with these getting soggy on the bottom (my first attempt at any kind of calzone), and after reading some ideas, I might try putting some slits or fork holes on top for steam escape, may try a little cornmeal on cookie sheet, and will definitely remove and put on cooling racks right away. Still, the recipe itself is truly delicious and such a treat! Thank you for posting this great recipe that I will make again (and freeze some, too).
