Gluten-Free Calzone Recipe


This might be my favorite recipe...at least it's my favorite for now. I use Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Pizza Crust mix to keep it GF and because it makes the two crusts so I can feed my family of 4 (and have leftovers). 

Mostly Made fillings are gluten-free (each batch is tested to ensure there's no gluten). Just use Gluten-free pizza dough to make these calzones. 

You’ll need:

1 package Mostly Made Lasagna Filling
Pizza dough for two 14" crusts, assembled per package directions
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Mix pizza dough per instructions and allow to rise, or use premade dough.
  3. Place parchment paper drizzled in olive oil on each baking sheet and roll out the dough. 
  4. Heat the Mostly Made Lasagna filling in a microwave safe bowl for 2 minutes, until hot.
  5. Spoon the Lasagna Filling on one half of the rolled out pizza dough.
  6. Top with 1 cup of mozzarella.
  7. Fold the empty half of the dough over the filling and crimp the edges to seal. Cut slits for steam to escape. Repeat for the second calzone.
  8. Bake 30 minutes until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.

Calzone recipe instructions

Special tips for using gluten-free dough:

- Roll out dough on parchment paper that you lightly spread with olive oil. Use the parchment to easily fold over the calzone once filled. It also makes clean-up easier. 

- If the gluten-free dough is sticking when you roll it out, dip your fingers in water. This makes it much easier to spread out. 

- Pre-cooking the GF pizza dough for ~2 minutes before you add the Lasagna filling makes it easier to fold over the calzone. This is true for gluten-free dough, but not necessary for regular dough.

- Before you add the Filling to the calzones, heat the lasagna filling in the microwave for 2 minutes to cut down on the baking time. This ensures the center will be hot without burning the crust.
