This was one of the delicious items my dear friend (and fabulous cook) Steph served at her New Years party this year.I am usually not a meatball girl, but this was soooo yummy, that I asked her for the recipe. To my delight, it was SUPER easy!! I came home and made one for my family a couple of days later. It was a hit! In this picture I actually used some homemade pizza dough I had in the freezer. I do have to admit though, that this calzone is better with the Rhodes brand bread dough. Anyway, here is the recipe–hope you enjoy it!
Frozen Rhodes bread loaf–( 1 pound loaf, thawed)
Frozen Costco Italian Meatballs-heat as directed-(about a dozen)
Shredded Mozzarella cheese (1-2 cups)
Parmesan (1/2 cup)
Serve with your favorite spaghetti sauce (I have a really great 5 minute marinara sauce-I will post soon)
On a floured surface (or Roul pat), roll out the thawed dough into a 18 x 12 inch rectangle. Spoon on the desired amount of cooked meatballs and sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese on half the rectangle of dough. Fold dough over filling and press edges firmly to seal.
Place on a baking stone (or cookie sheet). Brush top with egg wash and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Let stand for 15-30 minutes while you preheat the oven to 350. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with your favorite marinara/spaghetti sauce. Enjoy!!
