As I blogged about before, we have pizza every Friday evening.  Today my eldest daughter had to rush off to swimming right away so I thought I'd tackle the calzone.  Easy enough to finish eating in the van if need be, and I could make everybody's a little bit different.  As it turned out I was also able to make enough to freeze for a few lunches in the next couple of weeks.  We had spinach and feta, veggie pepperoni and cheese, red and green pepper, and some with all of the above.  They were a giant hit, and will definitely be added to our regular meal rotation.


3 cups white flour
3 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups warm water
4 1/2 tsp yeast (2 packages)
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp salt
olive oil
(whatever fillings you want to use-mozza, cheddar, feta, peppers, garlic, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, etc)

*Dissolve yeast and honey with warm water, leave to foam for 10ish minutes
*Mix flours and salt, make a well and add yeast mixture
*Combine well and knead for 5-10 minutes
*Cover in oil and let rise in covered bowl for at least 1 hour
*Punch down and divide into 16 pieces
*Roll each section into a circle, spoon in filling, and fold over.
*Wet edges and use a fork to crimp the edges
*Brush the top lightly with olive oil
*Bake at 450 for 20 minutes
