Meat Lovers Calzone

Active Time: 10 minutes • Total Time: 30 minutes • Serves: 4


Schnucks nonstick cooking spray
1 tube (10 ounces) refrigerated classic pizza crust dough
1 cup part-skim or whole-milk ricotta cheese
1 cup Schnucks shredded mozzarella cheese (about 4 ounces)
1 cup precooked hearty sausage crumbles
1/2 cup pepperoni minis
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3/4 cup marinara or basilico pasta sauce, plus additional for serving (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray large cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. On cookie sheet, unroll pizza dough. Press dough into 14 x 10-inch rectangle.

2. In large bowl, stir ricotta cheese, mozzarella cheese, sausage, pepperoni and cornstarch. Spread cheese mixture down long side of dough to cover half of dough leaving 1-inch border around edges. Spoon pasta sauce evenly over cheese mixture.

3. Fold other half of dough over filling. Pinch edges together to seal. Cut 5 slits in top of calzone to allow steam to escape during baking. Bake on bottom oven rack 18 to 22 minutes or until golden. If desired, heat additional sauce to serve with calzone for dipping.
