Lazone (If lasagna & a calzone had a baby…)

Get in my belly.

My kids are not big lasagna fans. They will eat it but they don’t ask for it. Crazy, I know. But my sister had a Lazone (lasagna calzone) at a place in Spokane and loved it. So naturally I had to try it myself. It was delicious. And the kids loved it. Anything wrapped in a good dough and baked it most always good. And good it was. I bought prepared lasagna for the ease of it. I suggest you do the same. Such a fun dinner in a short amount of time.

1 40 oz. fresh or frozen lasagna

1 recipe Authentic Pizza Crust

Pizza Sauce

Shredded Italian cheese

Parmesan cheese and fresh basil for garnish

Cook your lasagna according to package directions. Meanwhile make your dough and let it rise for 1 hour.

I got this great fresh lasagna from Walmart.

Assemble your lazone. Divide the dough in to 8-12 pieces. Cut your cooled lasagna into 8 or 12 pieces.

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Take a ball of dough and roll or use your fingers to spread it into a round shape, about 1/3″ thick. Place some pizza sauce, and more cheese, then your piece of lasagna on top. And more cheese of course, the cheesier the better. Crimp the edges together. Place your lazone on a baking sheet. Repeat until all are done. You can place 4-5 lazones on a large baking sheet. Do a quick egg wash on top of each lazone before baking. This helps in browning.

Bake for 22-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before serving. You can garnish with more Parmesan cheese and fresh basil if desired.

Happy Lazone Night!
