Four Years Ago: White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies and Cranberry Apple Scones
recipe by The Sweets Life
-12 oz pizza dough (I used my sourdough pizza dough)
-1 onion, diced
-1 lb ground turkey
-1 tsp cumin
-1/2 tsp chili powder
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-2 bell peppers, seeded and diced
-1 (15 oz) container low-fat ricotta cheese
-1 cup shredded Mexican cheese
-salsa, avocado, and/or sour cream, for serving
1. Brown turkey with the diced onion and bell peppers in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once turkey has browned, stir in cumin, chili powder, and garlic powder, cooking for one minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
2. In a large bowl, mix egg with ricotta and shredded cheese. Stir turkey mixture into the cheese mixture, mixing well to combine.
3. Divide pizza dough into 8 or 10 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball on a floured surface and use a rolling pin to roll into a thin circle. Top with 1/4-1/2 cup of the filling and fold one half of the circle over the other, creating a half circle. Pinch the open ends together to seal. Use a knife to cut a few slits in the top of each calzone.
4. To freeze, place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze calzones until firm before wrapping individually in plastic wrap and storing in a freezer bag. To bake, allow to thaw. Unwrap, place on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 400F for 25-35 minutes, until heated through.
