Ingredients

For the Calzone Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

For the Filling

  • 1/2 cup ricotta
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup Italian sausage cooked and crumbled

For the Topping

  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

Instructions

  • Heat your oven to 375°F.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella and 2 ounces cream cheese to a microwave-safe bowl.
  • Melt the cheeses in the microwave for a total of 90 seconds in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval.
  • To the same bowl, add 1 egg, the almond flour, and the baking powder.
  • Knead all the ingredients together with your hands until fully incorporated then create a large dough ball.
  • Divide the dough ball into 3 equal parts.
  • Roll out each of the 3 dough parts into individual 8-inch circles in between two layers of parchment paper.
  • Remove the top layer of parchment paper and carefully transfer the bottom layer of parchment paper with the 3 dough circles on it to a baking sheet.
  • Mix your fillings (the cheeses & cooked Italian sausage) together in a medium bowl.
  • Put 1/3 of the filling on one half of each dough circle.
  • Fold the other half of the dough over and seal the edges with a fork.
  • Beat the remaining egg with a fork lightly and brush the egg over the top of each calzone.
  • Using a knife, make 3-4 slits in the top of each calzone about an inch apart.
  • Sprinkle the calzones with dried oregano and coarse salt.
  • Bake for 20-26 minutes or until tops are golden brown.

Notes

  • Make sure to both knead and roll out your dough. Don't skip these steps.
  • Don't over-stuff. Be careful not to pack your calzone to the brim.
  • Pre-cook your vegetables. If you are stuffing your calzone with veggies, sauté them in a skillet until they are softened slightly.
  • Avoid hidden sugars. If using 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!
