Ingredients

Calzone Dough:

  • 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella cheese grated
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Filling:

  • 2 cups roasted turkey cut into cubes
  • 4 tablespoons Marinara sauce low carb
  • 2 oz Parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 oz Mozzarella cheese grated
  • 1 egg wash for brushing calzones

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 220C/425F degrees.
  • Place the mozzarella and cream cheese in a bowl. Either zap in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and zap for another 30 seconds. If the mixture has not melted give it another blast in the microwave.
  • If you don’t have a microwave, place the bowl over a saucepan of boiling water and stir until melted.
  • Once the cheese has melted, add the egg, baking powder and almond flour.
  • Stir until you have a dough mixture. Don’t be shy about using your hands to mix the dough. If it feels too sticky, add more almond flour.
  • Cut the dough into 4 pieces and place a quarter of the dough onto a piece of parchment paper, then lay another piece of parchment paper on top.
  • Roll out the dough into a circular shape. Remove the top baking paper and cut out a circular shape. I use a small saucepan lid. Repeat for all dough pieces.
  • Mix the turkey with the Marinara sauce.
  • Spoon the turkey mixture onto half of the circular dough.
  • Scatter the Parmesan cheese on top of the turkey, then the Mozzarella.
  • Gently fold the other half of the calzone dough over the filling and press the edges together so that they are sealed.
  • Place the calzones on a parchment paper lined baking tray and brush with the egg wash.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until golden
  • Eat and enjoy!

Rotisserie chicken or cooked ham could be used in place of the turkey.
