The Best Keto Calzones

Say hello to your new favorite weeknight dinner – Keto Calzones. Because let's admit it – calzones are pure deliciousness! 

They are basically a pizza sandwich! And you can stuff them with your favorite pizza toppings – so the possibilities are endless.

This calzone is our keto take on the traditional carb-filled calzone you would get at your local pizza shop. 

It tastes just as good and is super easy to make!

The Crust for Keto Calzones

The trick to this keto calzone is the crust.

This recipe utilizes a classic Fat Head Crust.

Fat Head Crust couldn't be easier to make and tastes incredible whether it is savory or sweet!

Once you master this keto crust, the sky is the limit on making incredible keto pizzas, sandwiches, flatbreads, and now even CALZONES!!

But you can stuff yours with anything that your heart desires!

  • Pepperoni
  • Chicken
  • Bacon

Calzone Tips

Before you start cooking, let's go over a few quick tips:

  • Make sure to both knead and roll out your dough! Don't skip these steps.
  • Be careful not to over-stuff your calzone.
  • If you are stuffing your calzone with veggies, saute them in a skillet beforehand until they are softened slightly.
  • If adding pizza sauce, make sure it is sugar-free and don't add too much or the crust will get too soggy.
  • We like to keep our sauce on the side and then dip the calzone into it!

Step #4. Roll Out the Dough

Divide the dough ball into 3 equal parts and roll out the dough parts into 8-inch circles in between two layers of parchment as pictured below.

Remove the top layer of parchment paper and carefully transfer the bottom layer of parchment paper with the dough circles on it to a baking sheet.

Time to assemble the Keto Calzone! This is how to assemble a keto calzone:

  1. Mix your fillings (cheeses & sausage) together in medium bowl.
  2. Put 1/3 of the filling on one half of each dough circle.
  3. Fold the other half of the dough over and seal the edges with a fork.
  4. Beat an egg with a fork lightly and brush the egg over the top of each calzone.
  5. Using a knife, make 3-4 slits in the top of each calzone about an inch apart.
  6. Sprinkle the calzones with dried oregano and coarse salt.

I’ve only recently started trying some keto recipes and this is my favourite so far. Really flavoursome and cheesy and I was surprised at how easy the dough was to make.
