Made some calzones tonight. I've made pizza many times, but never before have I made calzones. They were easier than pizza and I put basically the same stuff inside. Today, I had stuff in the fridge that needed to go. Some leftover lasagne sauce, some mushrooms that needed to br used and I had artichoke heart, olives and onion in the fridge, as well as the motzerella. It was a darn good calzone.
The dough was
1 pky yeast
desolved in 1 cup warm water.
Add that to 2 3/4 cup flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 Tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon salt
Mix together until smooth, cover and let rise for 1/2 hour.
Roll it out, fill half with whatever. Fold over and crimp edges. The recipe I used said to cut in half. I cut it in thirds, and next time I'll quarter it.
Spray a cookie sheet with Pam and cook in preheated oven (375) for 15 minutes. Brush on olive oil and sprinkle with salt and what ever herbs you like.
Bake for 15 minutes more. Let rest a few minutes before serving.
