Summers Not Over Recipes

Smoked Mozzarella Broccoli Calzones 
  • 1 ball Wildtree So Quick & Easy Pizza Dough, prepared according to package directions
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup frozen broccoli spears, thawed and chopped
  • 1/4 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Wildtree Smoked Mozzarella & Tomato blend
  • 1/2 tablespoon Wildtree Natural Grapeseed Oil
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet.
Combine mozzarella cheese, ricotta, broccoli, roasted red peppers and Smoked Mozzarella Blend in a medium bowl. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the ball of dough into a 12-inch round. Mound filling onto one side of the dough, leaving a 1-inch border along the edges. Brush the edges of the dough with water. Fold the other half of the dough over the filling and press edges to seal. Transfer to prepared baking sheet, use a sharp knife or kitchen shears to cut 5 slits diagonally across the top of each calzone. Brush the oil over the top and bake until golden, 15-20 minutes.
Serves 2-4.

Cranberry Graham Snackers

  • 3 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon Wildtree Cranberry Spice Blend
  • 8 honey Graham Crackers

  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
Bring water in a medium sized sauce pan to a boil. Add tortellini and cook about 10 minutes or until pasta is al dente. Drain and rinse under cold water to cool off enough to handle with your hands. Thread each skewer with a tortellini followed by a tomato, another tortellini and topped with a mozzarella ball. For the dipping sauce blend Basil Pesto Blend with warm water to hydrate. Then add ricotta and sour cream. Stir to blend.

Place the top on the sandwich and individually wrap sandwiches tightly in aluminum foil. Weigh sandwiches down with a large can, other picnic foods in the cooler, or a large skillet, etc. and let rest for at least 20 minutes. Unwrap and serve!
