I had actually, originally planned to make calzones in the skull pan, but wanted to keep it a very kid friendly meal, so I just made stuffed pizzas. Some kids, hate ricotta cheese. I was one of them. I’m glad my tastes have changed over the years. Now I love it and am a huge fan of calzones.
It’s funny how tastes change. As a kid I thought a pizza wasn’t a pizza without pepperoni, now I never eat it. I much prefer veggies or even ham and pineapple on my pizza. I chose to stuff my calzones with roasted red peppers and artichokes (pictured) and put pepperoni in my husband’s.
That’s one of the great things about calzones, or stuffed pizzas, you can customize them to your tastes.
Calzone Hearts (makes 6*)
8 ounces ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, plus 1 more whisked together with a bit of water to make an egg wash
pinch of salt
1/2 cup pizza sauce
3 tubes Pillsbury Thin Crust Pizza Dough*
fillings, pepperoni, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, artichokes, etc.
non-stick cooking spray
1 Wilton Dimensions 6 Cavity Mini Hearts Pan
Fill with 1 tablespoon pizza sauce and a little over 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture. Add toppings of your choice. Repeat.
If you’ve filled your hearts with various toppings, it’s a good idea to mark them in some way. I just put small pieces of the fillings on top.
