  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the shredded mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave on high for 1 minute, then stir. Continue microwaving in 30-second intervals until the cheese is melted and well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and salt.
  4. Add the dry ingredients and the egg to the melted cheese mixture. Stir well until a dough forms.
  5. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased surface and knead it for a couple of minutes until smooth and elastic.
  6. Divide the dough into four equal portions. Roll out each portion into a circle or oval shape, about 1/4 inch thick.
  7. Spread about 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce on one half of each dough circle, leaving a border around the edges.
  8. Layer the pepperoni slices, black olives, diced green bell pepper, diced onion, shredded mozzarella cheese, and red pepper flakes (if using) on top of the sauce.
  9. Fold the other half of the dough over the filling to create a half-moon shape. Press the edges together firmly and use a fork to crimp and seal the calzone.
  10. Transfer the calzones to the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
  11. Remove the calzones from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy your keto calzone as a satisfying meal!
