Serves: 24

Ingredients

  • ½ lb. mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ½ lb. ricotta cheese
  • ¼ lb. pepperoni, minced
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • ½ tsp. ground cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 package (12 oz.) round wonton wrappers
  • 2 cups vegetable oil

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the wonton skins and oil and blend well.
  • Lay out about 10 wonton skins on the work surface. Keep others covered with a towel. Place 1½ teaspoons of cheese mixture in the lower center of each wonton skin. Fold over and press edges firmly to seal. To ensure a tight seal, moisten the lower edge with water before pressing closed. Cover filled skins with a kitchen towel to prevent drying.
  • In a 5-quart saucepan or a deep fryer, heat oil to 370°F. Fry calzoni 8 at a time, until golden brown on both sides. Remove and let drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
