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:
- 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.
