We might raise our own meat: beef, pork, and chicken – but we also choose to eat vegetarian once or twice a week for health purposes as well as the financial benefits.
A fresh batch of ricotta and mozzarella make these calzones the perfect meal for a Wednesday evening. Ricotta is one of the simplest cheeses to make, and will leave you feeling like a farmstead rockstar. I made the cheeses the morning of, before my farm deliveries, and the dough upon returning home. Components spread throughout the day make for an easy compilation at dinner time.
The crust for these calzones are from scratch whole wheat – with a small amount of honey to activate the yeast, and only take an hour. Pizza dough is definitely one of those things that are super easy to make by hand. You can whip up a batch to rise quickly.
Mushrooms, Spinach, Garlic, and melty cheese. You can’t go wrong with those flavors.
Add these calzones to your weekly meal planning. You won’t regret it!
Bonus: You can freeze these before or after baking! Simply place on a baking sheet. Freeze for a couple hours. Transfer to a freezer safe bag. Bake (do not thaw) in a screaming hot oven until cooked all the way through. Easy!
