Having three boys means we go through a lot of food in my house. They have never eaten a ton in one sitting, but they eat all day! It is funny though, my oldest son who is 6’1″ eats the least and my middle son who hates everything eats the most. I have learned over the years to have food accessible all the time. I try to have fruit or some frozen snack heated when they get home from school. When have time I will make a big snack or the “meal” before dinner. This recipe is one of those snacks I will make, but it is a great dinner as well. Just serve a salad and you have a great, easy weeknight meal.
Easy weeknight dinner for the little kids and big kids.
- 2 16oz Balls of frozen pizza dough
- 1 small Jar pasta sauce
- 1 Cup Cottage cheese or ricotta
- 2 Cups Shredded mozzarella
- 1 lb. Sweet Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
- 1 5oz Package sliced pepperoni
Cut dough into 4-6 equal pieces. Roll out into a circle on a floured cutting board.
Spread a small amount of sauce on the dough. Spread about 1 Tablespoon cottage cheese or ricotta onto one half of the rolled out dough. Sprinkle mozzarella, sausage and a few slices of pepperoni over the cheese and sauce.
Fold the dough over filling and pinch edges to seal.
Place calzone onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil.
Once you have finished preparing all the calzones place into a heated oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with heated remaining pasta sauce.
