Ingredients
  

  • 1 Fresh Pizza Dough We buy ours at our local Italian market
  • 1/4 Cup Flour To rollout the dough and coat rolling pin
  • 1 Pack Gardein Meatless Meatballs or your favorite brand
  • 1 Jar Tomato Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion Chopped
  • 6 Garlic Cloves Crushed
  • 1 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • 2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast (Nooch)
  • 1 Pack Vegan Ricotta We used Kitehill
  • 1 Pack Vegan Mozzarella Shreds
  • 1/4 Cup Vegan Butter Melted
  • Salt to Taste
  • Black Pepper to Taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 450ºF.
  • Chop half of your onion, crush 4 cloves of garlic, and saute over 1 tbsp olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  • Once the onions and garlic are soft, add the meatless meatballs and cook for 6-8 minutes.
  • When the meatballs have browned, add 1 jar of tomato sauce, 1 tsp dried basil, 1 tsp oregano, 2 tbsp Nooch, and salt and pepper to taste. Reduce the heat to low and cook in the sauce for about 5 minutes to soak in that flavor.
  • Once the meatballs are cooked, set aside. Remove your fresh pizza dough from the wrapping and set onto a lightly floured surface and cut into 4 equal parts.
  • Lightly flour your rolling pin and roll out one pizza dough quarter at a time. It doesn’t have to be a perfect shape so long as it is large enough to stuff and fold.
  • Spread 1-2 tbsp vegan ricotta cheese onto the dough leaving about 1 inch of space around the edge of the dough. Place your toppings: tomato sauce, meatballs, and vegan mozzarella on one half of the dough.
  • Fold the dough over the toppings and seal by pinching the dough together around the entire calzone. Press down the edges with a fork to reinforce. Repeat with the remaining 3 dough quarters.
  • Once the calzones are stuffed and ready to go, crush 2 garlic cloves and combine with melted butter. Brush the garlic butter over all of the calzones for that perfect golden crust!
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden. Let cool for a bit before eating and enjoy!
