We eat pizza a lot over here, so I thought it’d be fun to try my hand at making homemade calzones, which are pretty much just like little inside-out pizzas.
I used my recipe for homemade pizza dough for the calzone crust, except with only all-purpose flour this time instead of wheat. I was worried about the stretchablity, but in hindsight I believe the wheat flour version would have been fine too.
The fillings for these two homemade calzones were simple: mozzarella, ricotta and basil. (And a little spoonful of sauce for my husband’s, which some might say makes it a stromboli rather than a calzone….)
You might say that the fact that the cheese is oozing out means I didn’t do a great job of sealing the dough. But, I believe it only makes the calzones look that much more mouthwatering. Am I right?
