Sausage & Cheese Calzones {THM-S, Low Carb, Keto Friendly}

Share This:

Sausage and cheese perfectly wrapped in a golden brown low carb dough. Perfect for dipping in your favorite pizza sauce!

My husband has long been a lover of calzones. His absolute favorite is ham and cheese (more on that in another post). He whole-heartedly approves of these calzones! 

I was having one of those evenings when I didn’t know what I was going to make for dinner. I had been wanting to try this dough with calzones, and it turned out fantastic! 

This recipe uses the dough from my Low-Carb Stromboli recipe. You will need to make a double batch for these calzones, and you should get 8 Calzones.

Sausage & Cheese Calzones {THM-S, Low Carb, Keto Friendly}

  • Double batch of Low Carb Stromboli dough
  • 1 pound sausage of choice, browned and drained
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion (optional)
  • 12 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 egg white (for an egg wash)
  • Parmesan cheese (for topping)
  1. Make the Low Carb Stromboli dough, and divide it into 8 balls.
  2. On parchment paper, flatten balls into circles.
  3. Place a few spoonfuls of sausage in the center of the circle.
  4. Sprinkle onion (if using) and shredded mozzarella on top of the sausage.
  5. Gently fold the dough over the filling and seal the edges.
  6. Brush with egg white and sprinkle Parmesan on top.
  7. Bake in 425 oven for 12-15 minutes, or until tops turn golden brown.
  8. Serve with your favorite pizza or marinara sauce!

    1. Wow these look amazing! I almost clicked off because I thought it was the real thing lol. I’m bookmarking this and will have to give it a try soon!

    2. I made these last night for dinner with a salad, and they are “awesome”! My question is can you made the dough ahead and freeze before cooking or are they better made and then freeze?

      1. I haven’t tried freezing the dough ahead of time, but I would think they would be okay if you cooked them first, then froze them! If you do, please report back and let me know how it turns out! So glad you enjoyed them! They are on my menu again this week!
