Ingredients

  • 4

    cups flour, plus more for dusting

  • 3

    tsp. baking powder

  • 3/4

    tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste

  • 1 1/2

    tbsp. canola oil, plus more for frying

  • 2

    cups ricotta cheese

  • 8

    oz. sliced deli ham, torn into 2" pieces

  • 6

    oz. mozzarella

  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • Marinara sauce, for serving

Directions

1. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add oil and 1¼ cup water; knead dough until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and leave to rest for 30 minutes. 2. Combine ricotta cheese, ham, mozzarella, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl and refrigerate until ready to use. 3. Heat 2” oil in a 6-qt. saucepan until a deep-fry thermometer reads 350°. Divide the dough into 6 balls. On a lightly floured surface, roll balls into six 9” circles. Place ⅔ cups of cheese mixture on one side of each circle, leaving a 1” border. Fold other half of circles over, and seal with a fork. Working with one calzone at a time, fry, turning once, until golden and puffed, about 5 minutes. Using tongs, remove calzone and drain briefly on a paper towel-lined plate. Transfer to a serving platter and serve with warm marinara sauce.
