Description

Use frozen bread dough to make these ridiculously easy glorified pizza pockets!

Ingredients

  • 16 whole Frozen, Unrisen Dinner Rolls (I Use Rhodes) Note: Can Also Use Frozen Bread Loaves.
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Diced
  • 1 pound Breakfast Or Italian Sausage
  • ½ teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes
  • 15 ounces, fluid Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese
  • ½ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1-½ cup Grated Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • Black Pepper To Taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Parsley
  • Marinara Sauce, For Serving
  • 1 whole Egg, Beaten

Preparation

Place frozen rolls (or frozen bread loaves) on a baking sheet to thaw. Cover with a tea towel and let thaw and rise for 2 to 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and allow to cook for a couple of minutes. Add sausage and cook until brown, crumbling the sausage as you stir. Add Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. Remove from pan and allow to cool on a plate.

In a separate bowl, combine ricotta, Parmesan, mozzarella, eggs, salt, pepper, and parsley. When sausage is cool, stir it in. Set aside.

When rolls are thawed and risen, roll them out on a lightly floured surface until paper thin. Spoon 3-4 tablespoons (approximately) filling onto half of the dough circle. Fold half of the dough over itself, then press edges to seal.

*Note: If you want a larger calzone, use frozen bread loaves and use about 1/4 to 1/3 of the loaf for each calzone.

Brush surface of calzone with beaten egg, then bake for 10-13 minutes, or until nice and golden brown. Serve with warm marinara sauce.

Made these last night. Husband ate three of them. He took the sauce and just poured it over them, said it was easier. He says it’s a definite “Do Over” The rest I wrapped and threw in the freezer for future enjoyment!

These were easier than I expected, normally I don’t work well with any kind of dough. Really liked the cheese filling inside, thinking of what else I could stuff in them now. Thanks for sharing, it was a winner!
