Ingredients

2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 8 ounces)

1/2 cup ricotta cheese

1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped

2 scallions, sliced

1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons grated parmesan cheese (about 1 1/2 ounces)

1 tablespoon breadcrumbs

1 pound prepared pizza dough, at room temperature

All-purpose flour, for dusting

1 large egg, lightly beaten

Marinara sauce, warmed, for dipping

4 ounces sliced salami

Giardiniera (Italian pickled vegetables), for serving (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Make the filling: Mix the mozzarella, ricotta, basil, scallions, 1/4 cup parmesan and the breadcrumbs in a medium bowl until combined. Divide the pizza dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll out each piece on a lightly floured surface into a 7-to-8-inch round.
  3. Spoon one-quarter of the filling onto one half of each dough round, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Lightly brush the edges of the dough with some of the beaten egg; fold the dough over the filling and crimp the edges with a fork to seal. Transfer the calzones to the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Brush the calzones with the remaining beaten egg and cut 2 slits in the top of each to let steam escape. Sprinkle the calzones with the remaining 2 teaspoons parmesan, then bake until golden brown and cooked through, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce, the salami and giardiniera.
