Lasagna-stuffed calzones

Makes 8 calzones

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound prepared pizza dough
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • 2 cups marinara sauce of choice
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  3. Brown and crumble the sausage.
  4. Drain the grease from the sausage, then pour in the marinara.
  5. Bring to a simmer and let the sauce cook down until almost all the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the ricotta, Parmesan and mozzarella cheese until well combined.
  7. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces.
  8. For each calzone, roll the dough into an 8-inch circle.
  9. Place 1/8 of the cheese mixture and 1/8 of the meat mixture in the center.
  10. Close the dough edges together to make a half-moon shape.
  11. Press and seal all of the edges very well.
  12. Place on the baking sheet and repeat until 8 calzones are made.
  13. Bake at 500 degrees F for 15 minutes until golden brown.
  14. Serve hot.
