Calzone Recipe

Here comes my beloved calzone recipe. I just made a new batch and my folks aaah’d and hmmm’d a lot … so, here you go =)

Ingredients

… for the dough

1 kg flour
350 ml warm milk (= 1.8 cup)
200 ml warm water (= 1 cup)
2 teaspoons (1 package) dry yeast
9 tablespoons olive oil
5-6 teaspoons of salt
4 teaspoons of sugar

… for the filling

You are actually free to put whatever you want in it. Your favourite pizza topping will do.

Procedure

Put some of the water in a cup and slightly mix in the yeast. Add a teaspoon of sugar and let it wait for 5 minutes.

Put the flour, milk, rest of the water, oil, salt, rest of the sugar, and the yeast+water mixture into a bowl and knead well. Put a cloth on top of the bowl and let it rest for about an hour.

After the dough has grown to approximately twice its size, make little balls (a little larger than a walnut) out of it and put aside.

Roll out each ball to approximately 14 cm in diameter (= 5.5 inch). Put 1,5 tablespoons of the filling on one half of the dough, fold over the other half and tightly secure the borders =)
