Calzone in Se7en Steps…

April 28th, 2009 · 10 Comments

Well we always have pizza’s on Saturday night – always… But this past week after an entire day out and everyone completely exhausted, and ready for bed, we could not raise any pizza interest… So we made something totally different (not!) and it went down surprisingly well, brilliantly in fact!. The father person has been wanting to try calzone’s for a while but we kept putting it off because of the great pizza event. This way we kept everyone happy!

This is what you are aiming for:


Let’s Meet the Players:

  • One batch of pizza dough:


  • And whatever pizza topping you would like – to use as your filling.


    We just used:

    • ham,
    • mushrooms
    • motzerella
    • tomato pizza-sauce topping

Let’s Play the Game:

Step 1: Pop your dough onto a well-floured surface and roll it out.


Step 2: We used a plate to cut circles out of the rolled dough. We picked up the extra bits and re-rolled and re-cut and we quite easily made se7en!


Step 3: Pop your filling onto half the circle. We started with cheese to prevent the base getting to soggy with mushrooms and goodies… So layer away. We went cheese, pizza tomato-sauce, ham, mushrooms and finally smothered some more cheese on top.


Step 4: Fold your pizza base over the filling.


Step 5: Seal your calzone with a fork.


Step 6: Brush with olive oil.


Step 7: Pop into a hot oven 200 degrees Celsius (400 degrees fahrenheit) for about 10 to 15 minutes. Until it is nicely brown
and crispy on top.


When you slice it open all the yummy filling should be hot and steamy and lots of melted cheese – Yum!


That’s it – pizza with a twist! The hoods called them pizza-pies and they were munched down with alarming speed.

    We, Americans, have two meanings for "bomb".

    Like, things could "bomb" (be horrible).

    Or, it’s "the bomb" (as in fantastic).

    Had to get to the end of your post to decide what you meant.

    Sorry, meant to add this.

    It’s kind of like "quite". We Americans use "quite" positively. Yet, in England we discovered it had more of a "ahh, not so great, but okay" conotation.

    Got my husband into trouble a couple of times when he thought he was complimenting the cook regarding their food which was "quite" good. 😉

    Hay C, Thanks for the input – I think I may edit “quite” a bit!!! Actually I have a post lurking in my head on “South Africanisms” because we sure speak a different language to the rest of the world… Thanks again – and we are finished school !!! for the day and it is lunchtime on a glorious sunny day – yayayayay… I will have to spend the afternoon off my computer!

    Hi M, So nice to meet you from the far side of the world!!! I am so glad you stopped by to comment! Isn’t it funny how so many countries speak English but that doesn’t mean we speak the same language at all! You have a good day!
