I went a few weeks ago to Olympia to hang out with my BFF Mallory and her Fiance Aaron. Aaron jokingly said I could only stay if I cooked for them…lol. Mallory is Vegetarian, so I did what I always do and FoodGawker’ed “vegetarian” looking for something new and exciting, that’s when I saw it, Vegetarian Calzones….Holla! This was super exciting!
My recipe was very roughly based off this recipe. However, I’m not really a “make your own dough” kinda girl, so we headed to the magical land of Trader Joe’s. We didn’t have Trader Joe’s in Colorado, so I’m very excited to add them to my weekly shopping, as I hear nothing but good things. We got everything for this meal there, including Whole Wheat pizza dough.
-Fat Free Ricotta Cheese
-Low Fat mozzarella
-2 packages of Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
-Let the dough sit out for 20 minutes, as the package says to do so.
-Chop onions, garlic, peppers, and Sausage
-Saute vegetables in olive oil, add sausage and Saute that too.
-Meanwhile mix the Ricotta and the Mozzarella and Chopped fresh Basil into a large mixing bowl.
-When the veggies and Sausage are cooked, mix them into the cheese bowl (its fine if they are still a bit hot).
-Set aside the “insides” and separate the dough into 4 balls, roll out with a little flour into ovals. Put a big scoop of the “inside” mixture int he center of the dough, fold over and crimp. Bake based on your dough’s instructions. We also added little bowls of marinara for dipping.
