From the Test Kitchen

These calzones are loaded with melty fresh mozzarella, creamy ricotta, and tender broccoli—balanced by a tangy tomato dipping sauce. For a refreshing side, we’re tossing crunchy romaine and briny black olives in our take on Caesar dressing.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Remove the dough from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem, then roughly chop the broccoli. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Tear the mozzarella cheese into small pieces. Quarter and deseed the lemon.

Cook the broccoli & make the filling:
2 Cook the broccoli & make the filling:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped broccoli; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add 2/3 of the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add 1/4 cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the broccoli has softened and the water has cooked off. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, half the Italian seasoning, and the juice of 1 lemon wedge; stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan.

Assemble & bake the calzones:
3 Assemble & bake the calzones:

Lightly oil a sheet pan. Divide the dough into 2 equal-sized portions; using your hands and a rolling pin (or wine bottle), gently stretch and roll the portions into ¼-inch-thick rounds. (If the dough is resistant, let rest for 5 minutes.) Divide the filling between the centers of the rounds; fold each round in half over the filling. Using a fork, crimp the edges of the dough to seal. Transfer to the sheet pan. Using a fork, poke a few holes across the tops of the calzones to vent. Lightly drizzle the calzones with olive oil. Bake 16 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand for at least 2 minutes.

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
4 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the calzones bake, using the flat side of your knife, smash the olives; remove and discard the pits, then roughly chop. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; roughly chop the leaves. To make the dressing, in a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, half the parmesan cheese, the juice of the remaining lemon wedges, and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Make the sauce:
5 Make the sauce:

While the calzones continue to bake, in the pan used to cook the broccoli, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the remaining chopped garlic; cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the tomato sauce and remaining Italian seasoning. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Make the salad & serve your dish:
6 Make the salad & serve your dish:

Just before serving, add the chopped olives and lettuce to the bowl of dressing. Toss to coat; season with salt and pepper to taste. Cut the baked calzones in half. Serve with the sauce and salad on the side. Garnish with the remaining parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
