I like pizza, but sometimes, it gets quite messy when you eat it on the go. This is where calzone comes in, they are sandwich sized, so they are perfect for lunch, and since they are in a pocket of dough, it’s perfect to eat while on the go. So let’s make it!

You’ll need: 250g flour; 150g water; 5g instant yeast; 2g salt; 1/4 lb sliced prosciutto; 1/4 lb sliced salami or mortadella; mozzarella & ricotta cheese; 1 can tomato sauce; 1 tbsp olive oil; 1/2 sweet onion; 2 cloves garlic; 1 red chili; some basil

How to make this:

  1. Mix the yeast and water together to wake them up. Mix the flour and salt, sift, then add in the water, knead for 3 min, then cover and let it rise for at least 1 hour
  2. After the dough is raised, divide it into 2, knead each dough for another 1 min, and let the dough rest for another 30min
  3. Mince the chili, onion, and garlic, then cook them in olive oil over medium heat. Add the tomato sauce and cook for 10 min over medium heat
  4. Press the dough into about 8-inches wide, then on half of the dough, place on a layer of sauce, then place a layer of prosciutto, ricotta cheese, salami, and mozzarella, then some basil leaves for some extra flavor
  5. Fold the half over, then fold the sides to seal the calzone, poke 3 little holes on the top for steam to escape
  6. Brush on a layer of egg wash, sprinkle with some parmesan cheese, then bake it in a 260C or 500F oven for 14 min
  7. Sever it with a salad and extra sauce
