Great recipe! My husband was in the field and I needed a meal I could serve him and the other guys that could be eaten with one hand. The crust on these calzones tastes great! Just a few helpful hints... use lots of flour when rolling so it doesn't stick. I cut back on the white flour that I put in the dough so that I could add more while I was rolling. I added some italian seasoning to the dough as well. Also, I only used water to seal the edges and then crimped with a fork. I used a sausage pizza type filling as well as pepperoni. Tasted great and husband was happy to have something other than sandwiches or pizza while planting! Can't wait to try other filling ideas! Thank you!
Very tasty crust! We kneaded it for ten minutes before letting it rise the first time. This made eight meal sized calzones! I have six in the freezer for quick lunches. I hope they freeze well!
We really enjoyed this crust, and we made up our own filling. I roasted a large pan of red peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, onion, eggplant and mushrooms. I used this for the filling, along with about 1T of tomato sauce, some garlic chips, red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, and a good handful of mozzarella cheese. Next time I might add the Italian seasoning in the crust, but otherwise it was just right. I made half a recipe, and I plan to assemble a couple more to put in the freezer uncooked, for quick dinners. Thanks Annie H!
This was quite good. Our filling was hamburger, black olives, cheese and pizza sauce. I can't wait to try the chicken one! The recipe did confuse me a bit, because I thought the dough should rise some. So after consulting some zaar friends, I mixed the dough, let it rise until doubled, then punched it down, rolled into about a 9 inch circle, filled them up, and sealed with a egg wash before crimping together. Wonderful! Thanks!
These were okay. I found them a bit doughy. I made the asparagus one which was actually pretty bland. I also modified the chicken one to use garlic-herb cheese and a red pepper/eggplant sauce. Good, but not spectacular. Maybe I should've tried other fillings.
This was a great recipe except for the directions on the dough were a little vague. I tried the chicken filling and DH thought it would be better with shredded chicken instead of strips. Thanks for a good start to my OAMC stash.
Yes! I did a dry run of these tonight before making them for my girlfriend and had so much fun. I made the classic chicken calzone and made only 4. I must say that at first the assembly process was confusing but by the fourth one I was a pro. Making the dough into a rectangle seemed to work best. Thanks!
This was good. I used the beef filling and i added a bit of cheese as well. I found the dough a little tough to work with and I think next time I would like to try it with all white flour. I made these during a OAMC blitz and froze a few of these for my husband's lunches. These tasted delicious dipped in barbque sauce. Thanks for posting!
We loved this Calzone. I prepared the chicken filling in the morning. Then prepared the dough near supper time. VERY easy and very good. I plan on making the asparagus and brie cheese next. This is a gread find and I thank you for sharing it, Annie H.
