My First Calzone Attempt ~

 

So this was simple and good. You start with the frozen bread dough you find in the grocery store. I thawed one loaf. Then I floured my surface. I separated the loaf into 3 equal parts. Yikes but when I went to roll out my first circle I realized I do not have a rolling pin in my condo kitchen supplies! What to do? Well I’m not a HomeEc major for nothing people. I’ve learned to improvise. The closest thing I could find in my condo that resembled a rolling pin was this…

A muddler! Wasn’t the simplest tool to use to roll out the dough to a seven inch circle but it worked.

I sauteed most of the filling ingredients before adding them to the circle of dough. You can choose whatever filling floats your boat. I chose red onion, mushrooms, green bell-pepper, and chicken sausage. After sauteing these together and getting rid of some of the moisture I spread a little marinara on the dough placed some soft mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce and then added the sauteed ingredients. Egg wash the edges like shown above and then fold it over and seal it. Give the top another egg wash and prick it with a fork. Bake in a 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes. And drum roll please…here’s how it came out.

It was very yummy! Oh and I was so proud that I got it to fit on a smaller plate to fulfill my brown plate challenge…

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage. I’m working on updating my blog posts very slowly.

  1. I have used clean glass bottles as a replacement for rolling pins before and gotten good results 🙂
    Nice-looking calzone!

  2. Yummy! I’ve used the Pillsbury refrigerated bread dough in the tube. It works pretty good, too. It came out a little smaller than yours, I’m sure.

  3. Thanks for sharing your How-To. I made a mushroom and cheese calzone about two weeks ago. It tasted good, but the calzone ended up being as big as two large dinner plates…I think I’ll try your technique next time. 🙂
