Tools To Make
Here’s what you’ll need to make this AMAZING keto calzone recipe:
Paper towel-lined plate
1 Low Carb Pizza Crust
1/2 Low Carb Pizza Sauce or any pizza sauce with no sugar added
1/2 Lb Italian Sausage casing removed
1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese shredded
1/2 Red Onion sliced
US Customary – Metric
Make the pizza dough per recipe, and divide the dough into 2 balls. Set aside while you make the filling.
In a large nonstick, cook the sausage until brown, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you cook it.
Place the sausage on a paper towel-lined plate and toss onions into the nonstick. Add oil if there isn’t enough grease left in the pan.
Saute until onions are soft and translucent, about 10-12 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 425 F.
Roll 1 of the pizza dough balls between 2 sheets of parchment paper using a rolling pin, until the dough is about 7″ wide. You want the dough to be of thick (or else it will tear).
Remove the top sheet of parchment paper.
On 1/2 of the dough, spread a spoonful of pizza sauce.
Sprinkle with 1/2 the sausage, cooked onions, and shredded cheese. Don’t overfill your dough! Fewer toppings are better and will prevent the dough from tearing.
Grab the edge of the parchment and fold the calzone dough in half, then peel back the top layer of parchment.
Damped your hands, and crease the edges of the dough. I like to push the ingredients in toward the center to get more crust along the edge. With damp hands, you can also smooth out any tears that may have formed. I also used a spoon to trace the edge between the crust and the calzone.
Brush your calzone with olive oil, and pop it in the oven for 22-25 minutes, or until the top becomes golden brown.
Serve with extra pizza sauce, and enjoy!
