My husband has had an operation recently. One of the first things that he asked for, when he started to feel better, was a calzone. I decided to knock up this easy calzone recipe. It was so simple to make, fun to prepare and delicious too. The total cost of this calzone, including ingredients, for two people, is well under £2! Depending on the fillings you want. I’m so happy with this easy calzone recipe that I’m already looking forward to making it again!
Ingredients for my easy calzone recipe
1/2 teaspoon yeast
300g strong white flour
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
Pizza toppings of your choice
Method for my easy calzone recipe
Make the dough and leave it to rise in a warm place for at least 30 minutes.
Divide the dough in to two, to make two calzones.
I rolled my dough out like a pizza dough, in to two large circles.
Then I dressed half the dough with homemade tomato sauce (reduced down), chorizo, ham, mushrooms and peppers. Then I added some cubes of mozzarella. You can use whatever filling you like.
Fold the dough over to make a half circle. Crimp the edges. I used a fork and it gave the desired result.
Cook in the oven for around 20 minutes on gas mark 6. I had two calzones in the oven so midway I swapped the pizza trays over. Once it was browning it was ready. This easy calzone recipe really is easy! It is cheap too, particularly compared to going out for dinner which is what my husband wanted to do.
There are so many options for fillings for this easy calzone recipe. You could use your favourite pizza toppings or you could just fill it with chocolate spread and marshmallows. Yum!
