Everything you love about a traditional pepperoni, in a calzone. Super quick, super simple. Recipe by the incredible Ines @lupacotta.
Pizza dough ball (7 Oz)
2 oz ricotta
8 oz pepperoni
Hot honey (optional)
Roll out your pizza dough into a circle with a wine bottle or rolling pin.
On one half of the dough, spread a thin layer of Calabrian chilli, a few dollops of ricotta, pepperoni, and sharp provolone. Remember, less is more.
Fold over and tightly crimp the edges, shaping the pizza dough into a half moon shape. Cut a few small slits to allow some air to escape.
Spread a very thin layer of tomato sauce on top of the dough. Add a pinch of pecorino, and a drizzle of olive oil.
Bake your pizza low and as slow as you can (ideally around 370°C/700°F) proactively turning the pizza so it gets evenly baked.
Add basil. Enjoy!
