Calzone

So this is my first time making this dish.  With my latest obsession of making my own dough (I still need a separate post about that) I thought this would be something good to try…this is another one of those dishes you don’t really need to plan ahead – just grab whatever you have in your fridge and get started!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound dough
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Assorted Meats (I used some Spicy Salami and Pepperoni)
  • Cheese (any kind you have on hand – I used Cheddar)
  • Mixed Veggies
  • Meat Sauce for dipping (I saved some of my lasagna sauce from the other night for this)

Directions:

  1. Dice your veggies you want to put in your Calzone – I used Red Onions, Mushrooms, Green Pepper, Jalapeno Pepper, and Tomato
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 450 F with a baking stone in it, and a broiler pan underneath
  3. Measure out 1 lb of dough, and flour your counter top 
  4. Split the dough into two balls, and roll out like you’re making pizza
  5. On half of the Calzone, put on some pizza sauce, and cover with your meat, veggies, and cheese 
  6. Using a Pastry Brush, moisten the outer edge of the dough with water
  7. Fold over the Calzone, and use your fingers to seal.  Slice a couple of holes thru the top with a serrated knife
  8. Liberally throw on some cornmeal on your baking stone, place the Calzone on the baking stone, and put a cup of water in the broiler pan and quickly close the door.  Cook for 25 minutes
  9. Warm your marinara sauce, and enjoy!
