Low Carb Ham & Cheese Calzones
Health Highlights
A delicious ham and cheese filling wrapped in a buttery almond flour crust. Add anything you like inside!


2 1/4 cup Almond flour/meal, Bob's Red Mill
6 tbsp Coconut flour
1/3 cup Whey protein powder, unflavoured
1 tbsp Baking powder
1 tsp Garlic powder
3/4 tsp Xanthan gum
3 large egg Egg
6 tbsp Butter, unsalted (melted)
3 cup shredded Swiss cheese (or any cheese or combination of preference)
1 1/2 cup Ham, sliced (chopped)
1 egg yolk Egg yolk


  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, whey protein, coconut flour, baking powder, garlic and xanthan gum.
  3. Add eggs and melted butter and mix until dough comes together.
  4. Divide dough in half. Turn out first half onto a large piece of parchment paper and pat into a rough circle. Top with another piece of parchment paper and roll out into a large circle, about 12 inches in diameter (roll it out quite thinly). Remove top piece of parchment.
  5. Sprinkle one half of the circle with about 1 & 1/2 cups of shredded cheese and 3/4 cup of chopped ham, leaving a 3/4 inch border for sealing the calzone.
  6. Use the parchment paper to lift and gently fold the other half of the dough over the cheese and ham filling. Pinch the edges to seal and crimp it with your fingers to create a nice edge.
  7. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Transfer calzones, still on the parchment on to baking sheets (or one large one, if you have it).
  8. Mix egg yolk in a small bowl and brush over the calzones.
  9. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
