Calzone Rolls

My son and I were flipping through on the TV last week and saw Rachel Ray cooking calzone rolls. The recipe looked simple and the end result delicious, so we decided then and there that we'd make them this weekend.

We had them for lunch yesterday (minus the salami, although my husband added it to his) and found them easy to make and even easier to consume! Here's the recipe to make four:

  • 4 large, crusty Kaiser rolls
  • 1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 pound salami, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 8 slices fresh mozzarella
  • 8 slices vine-ripe tomatoes
  • 8 fresh basil leaves torn or slices
  1. Heat the oven to 325°F.
  2. Slice the Kaiser rolls favoring the bottom half (bottom half thicker than the top). Scoop the white soft insides out of the bottom half.
  3. Season the ricotta with salt and pepper. Stir the salami and grated cheese into the ricotta.
  4. Fill the rolls with the ricotta and salami. Cover the ricotta with layers of basil, tomato and mozzarella. Set covers into place.
  5. Bake to heat through for 10-12 minutes. Cut and serve.
