Zucchini and roasted red pepper calzone

These are great to make now for those emergency dinner nights later!


You need:

  • 1 pizza dough ready to use
  • 1 cup of ricotta cheese
  • 2 roasted red peppers
  • 1.5 cups of shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water  beaten

I cut the dough in half so that I can make two calzones.  I roll each one out on a floured surface. 

Spread 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese on 1/2 of each rolled out dough's.  Lay the roasted red pepper over the  cheese.  I was able to cut up one whole pepper for each one.  Then I spread the shredded zucchini over the pepper and topped with mozzarella cheese.

Pull the dough over the filling and pinch closed with a fork.  Brush each calzone with with beaten egg mixture.

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 450. 

If you are going to freeze them let them cool, wrap in plastic wrap and then foil.  When ready to eat move wrapping and heat in microwave or oven!

you can change this up so easily – add spinach, use goat cheese, add mushroom.  So many ideas!
