Calzone With Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Recipe by Annacia
READY IN: 40mins




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