Steph's Pick - Calzones

Sep 11, 2009

Everyone has staple recipes that they use over and over again in their homes, right? If not, you should! Calzones are one of the things that Alan and I LOVE to make at least a couple times a month. They work great for a dinner and a movie night (that is if you're staying in). The Pizza Crust recipe (compliments of Nealy - which by the way, if you haven't checked out her blog, you totally should - she has some awesome idea's on it) and the Calzone recipe below are awesome!

Pizza Crust
3 cup flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp garlic
1 1/6 cup water
2 tsp yeast
1/2 tsp italian seasoning

Heat water to tepid; add sugar and yeast. Add remaining ingredients and knead 2 minutes. Let rise 30 min in warm place (ex: turn over on for 1 min then off).

Toppings: Pepperoni, Sausage, Mushrooms, peppers, etc... Here's your chance to get creative
1 cup mozzarella cheese
Italian dressing
Parmesan cheese
8 oz can pizza sauce

Preheat oven to 400 degree's.
Combine ingredients (meat cooked if need be) and add just enough dressing to moisten (2 Tbsp. should be plenty). Divide dough into 4-6 pieces. Roll and stretch each to form a 6-7 inch circle. Spoon filling on half of each circle, leaving 1/2 inch border. Fold other 1/2 over to form a 1/2 moon shape. Crimp edges with fingers to seal tightly. Cut a small vent on top. Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes. Brush with Italian dressing and sprinkle with parmesan and bake another 3-4 minutes. Serve with cups of pizza sauce.
