I've been looking for a way to use the fresh mozzarella that I have leftover from the Grilled Onion & Red Pepper Sandwich that I made early last week. Then I stumbled upon this lovely looking calzone on Pinterest and decided that a calzone would be a perfectly delicious way to use up the leftover mozzarella cheese.
-Package of Pizza Dough
-Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
Preheat your oven to 375.
|Mix dough according to package directions.|
|Slice the mozzarella as thin as possible.|
|Spread out the dough in a rectangular shape of a foil lined baking sheet.|
Spread marinara sauce down the center.
|Top with the mozzarella.|
|Cut the sides into strips and fold them across the center.|
|Once the toppings are covered, brush the top with the egg wash and sprinkle Italian Seasoning and Garlic Powder on top.|
|Ready to bake.|
|Bake for 20-30 minutes until the top is crispy.|
|Slice and serve.|
The calzone was pretty good and it was great to use fresh mozzarella. It's best served as a light lunch or dinner if it's going to be split three ways because overall the portions weren't very filling.
