Broccoli and Cheese Calzone

Broccoli and Cheese Calzone

Prep Time: 15 min

Inactive Prep Time:5 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Level: Easy

Serves:4 servings


  • 1 (15-ounce) container part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 8 ounces shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 (10-ounce) package broccoli florets, thawed and drained
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 pound bread or pizza dough, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan


In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella and broccoli. Mix well. Season with salt and black pepper.

Roll dough out to a 12-inch circle. Spread cheese filling over 1 side of circle, to within 1-inch of the edge. Lift 1 side of dough and fold over so that it meets the other side, forming a half moon, and pinch the edges together to seal.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Transfer calzone to a large baking sheet sprinkle the top with cheese. Bake 15 minutes, until puffed up golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
