These Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzones are the perfect way to satisfy your pizza cravings without blowing your diet!
Gooey, cheesy, meaty goodness – all wrapped up in a crispy pastry-like case! What’s not to love?
We used the Weight Watchers White Wraps to make these. We’ve tried many lower calorie/higher fibre wraps (Fitzgeralds, BFree), and the Weight Watchers ones are by far the best!
They are the only wraps that we’ve found that crimp well, don’t split and actually stay stuck together!
How many calories is in this Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone?
This Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone is 407 calories. A small classic Pepperoni Feast from Pizza Hut clocks up 1,050 calories, so this is a really great swap!
How Slimming World friendly is this Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone?
This Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone is Syn Free, but ONLY if you use the wrap as your Healthy Extra B, and the cheese as one of your Healthy Extra A choices.
You cannot use just any wrap as your HEB, only particular ones count. So be make sure to check that the ones you use count!
We used Reduced Fat Cheddar, and you get 40g for a HEA choice. This Syn Free Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone recipe makes 1 calzone.
If you don’t want to use your Healthy Extra allowances, this Syn Free Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone will be 12 Syns.
I also should remind you, that you should eat some speed food with this Syn Free Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone, to protect your weight loss. We like to enjoy ours with a large salad!
How Weight Watchers friendly is this Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone?
There are 9 Points in this Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone. This is a great saving when you consider a Domino’s Personal Meat Feast Pizza clocks up 18 Points!

How do you make this Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone?
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post.
Take a wrap and spread the passata over half (be careful not to get any too close to the edge).
Place all of the remaining ingredients (apart from the egg!) on one half of the wrap (again be careful not to get any too close to the edge).
Brush the exposed side of the wrap and all around the edges with beaten egg.
Fold the wrap in half and press down around the edge. Crimp the edges using the back of a fork, then place on a baking tray sprayed with low calorie cooking spray.
Brush the outside of the Calzone with beaten egg.
Bake at 200°C for 10 to 15 minutes or until 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 Syn Free Ham and Mushroom Pizza Calzone wouldn’t freeze well either.
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.
