How many calories are in this Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone? 

We worked this recipe out to be approximately 390 calories per calzone, which means it fits into our Everyday Light category, but as always, please double check any nutritional information yourself.

This recipe is perfect if you’re following a calorie controlled diet, and fits well with any one of the major diet plans such as Weight Watchers. 

As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day. Obviously, if your goal is to lose weight then you might want to adjust these slightly! You can read more about these recommendations on the NHS website.

How do you make this Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone?

Gooey, cheesy, meaty goodness – all wrapped up in a crispy pastry-like case, and it’s so easy to make! What’s not to love?

  • Spread the passata over the wrap to make a base. Don’t get too close to the edge!
  • Put all of the ingredients (apart from the egg!) on one half of the wrap, brush the edges with the beaten egg.
  • Fold over the wrap, seal the edges and brush the whole thing with beaten egg.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 -15 minutes or until its golden brown.

Can I freeze these Syn Free Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone?

We’ve not tried freezing them, but lots of people on our Facebook group have frozen our pasties, so there’s no reason why these Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone wouldn’t freeze well either, but please remember to do the following;

  • Freeze it as soon as it has cooled down completely.
  • Use an air-tight container or bag that is suitable for freezing.
  • Don’t forget to add a label with what it is, and on what date you put it in the freezer! Unless you fancy mystery food for dinner haha.

Just let them defrost, then pop them in the microwave to reheat. Or you could reheat them in the oven if you prefer, but be careful not to burn them.

Make sure they are piping hot before you eat them!

  1. I found these really nice but quite greasy when eating them tried flipping them over when cooking but still grease dripped out can you recommend anything to prevent this

    1. Hi Jayne,

      I think it would depend on the cheese and ham you’ve used, or how much frylight you sprayed on your baking tray.

      Hope that helps!

    1. Hi Michelle,

      I would recommend cooking them first. If you pop some parchment between them before freezing, they’ll be easier to separate 😊

  2. A year into my SW journey…it’s difficult to stay excited by the same meals – made these today for lunch and were delicious. Have made lots of your recipes…keep up the fab work.

  3. Made this with ham ,peppers , mushroom spring onion,homemade tomato sauce with half cheese and a squirt of primula low fat chees it was delicious.

  4. Made these for a food taster this evening and they were a hit, especially for our under sixteen member as they are struggling with packed lunches. I will definitely be making more of them.

  5. Could you cook these the night before and just take them into work the next day and eat cold? We don’t have a microwave at present!

  6. Delicious, I am loving your site. All the recipes I’ve made so far have been so tasty!! Thanks for keeping such an organised site wit the recipes so easily accessible. Makes it easier for us unofficial slimmers 🙂
