  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

  • Stretch your dough into an oblong circle. This doesn’t have to be perfect since you will be making it into a half moon shape.
  • Lay onto your prepared baking sheet.
  • Lay down your salami and pepperoni topped with your seasoned ricotta, mozzarella, sauce, and fresh basil off center of your dough leaving atleast 1 & 1/2” away from the edge.
  • Fold your dough over and pinch to seal shut. Using a fork, press around the edges to ensure it’s closed tight.
  • Using a knife, cut slits along the top to vent.
  • Mix together your olive oil, parsley flakes and garlic powder in a small bowl. Brush on top of your calzone.
  • Grate fresh parmesan on top.
