These sausage ricotta calzones are great to make for a quick dinner. And they are also really easy to freeze for future meals!
You can make these Sausage Ricotta Calzones using dinner rolls from the frozen section in the grocery store, or if you have more time available you can make your own pizza dough! I didn’t have much time, so I did the quick version, but I think these would be a ton tastier with homemade dough.
Since these calzones don’t have any kind of pizza sauce baked in, you can serve them with a variety of dipping sauces, from tomato sauce to alfredo sauce depending on your tastes.
