Turkey Meatball Balsamic Calzone

7 Nov

MainThe other night for dinner I decided to use the left-over pizza dough I made last week and make some calzones.  The pizza dough is similar to my normal one using mostly type 00 Caputo flour mixed with about 10% whole wheat.  I ran out of Caputo so I actually used around 20% Caputo along with some AP flour, potato flour and whole wheat and I added some Asiago cheese just for the fun of it.



The dough actually made some great pizza and was still nice and extensible after sitting in the freezer for a week.

I made some turkey meatballs using ground turkey, Panko Chili bread crumbs, greek yogurt, dried oregano, onions, fresh chopped garlic, onion powder, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, and a couple of eggs.  I browned them on all sides in a large pan and covered them for a few minutes at the end to make sure they were cooked through.  Lastly I glazed them with some good balsamic vinegar and let it create a nice caramelized crust on the meatballs.

For the stuffing in the calzones I used the meatballs, fresh ricotta cheese, fresh mozzarella and a little Asiago.

The end result was a whole lot of cheesy goodness!



Have a great weekend.
