Calzone (Pizza turnover)

(Pizza dough, extra olive oil, filling)

Make pizza dough earlier so it is risen and ready to bake (can use double or triple. The yeast in our recipe if you want it to rise faster).

Preheat oven to 220 degree C.

Make filling (see separate recipe) and place on oiled baking tray.

Roll pizza dough out thinly (large circles for big calzone to cut in wedges, small circles for individual “turnovers”. )

Brush dough circles with olive oil (or rub with hands). Spread filling over the half of the dough circle nearest to you, leaving a little space at the edges.

Fold the other half of the dough over  the filling to make the edges meet. Press edges together with a fork to seat well.

Brush top  with olive oil (or beaten egg) sprinkle with salt. Pierce a few holes with knife tip (to let out stream).

Bake 10-20 mins till brown and crisp.
