Introduction: Calzones From Scratch
I wanted to make pizza using my neighbors pizza dough recipe, but my toaster oven is too small to fit a round pizza. So I decided to wrap it up into calzones!
It's a very simple recipe, and you can use any vegetables for the filling. I used onions and peppers, but you can do mushrooms or olives too.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
- 2 cups flour
- 2-3 tbsp water
- 1 container (250 grams) of soft white cheese (sour cream might work if you can't find the cheese)
- 1 bag of baking powder - 10 grams, 0.35 oz, or 3 tsp works also
- Tomato paste
- Spices: garlic powder or granules, salt, pepper, sweet paprika, oregano
- Red bell pepper
- Yellow cheese
Step 2: Make Sauce and Saute Veggies
In a small saucepan, mix tomato paste with a bit of oil, water, and spices. Bring to a boil and simmer.
Saute onion and bell pepper (or mushrooms if you want) with a bit of oil until onion is translucent.
Step 3: Make Dough and Roll Out
Mix 2 cups flour, 2 tbsp water, 250 grams soft white cheese and a bag or 3 tsp of baking powder.
If the dough is too dry, add a tbsp of water.
Knead into a dough, and divide into 4 balls.
Roll out dough with a rolling pin until flat.
Step 4: Fill and Fold Your Dough
Spread about 1-2 tbsp of sauce on the dough. Leave the edges empty.
Put in some veggies and shredded (or cut up pieces) yellow cheese.
Fold the dough into a half circle and close at the edges. Cut some slits in the top to let steam escape.
Step 5: Bake and Enjoy!
Bake at 175C / 350F for about 40 minutes until browned and bubbly!
Let it cool a bit and enjoy!
I manged to eat 1 and a half, they are filling! You can eat one with a salad and have a perfect meal.
