Veg Calzone 

Veg calzone. 

Calzone is a dish of Italian origin that is made of pizza dough. Pizza dough folded in half and filled with cheese, tomato and Origano etc. 

I have used soya granules in the stuffing. If you want to make a non veg version you can use minced and boiled meat instead of soya granules. 

Make it as a party snack or for evening snacks for kids. 

Or make large sized calzone and serve as dinner. 

Sending this post to 105th #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is savoury baked dish.

I have used refined flour and whole wheat flour both. But you can make it with only whole wheat flour or only refined flour too. Or use half portion whole wheat flour and half refined flour. 



Recipe 



Atta or wholewheat flour  –2 cup 

Refined flour – 1 cup 

Yeast –  2 teaspoon

Sugar –  1/4 teaspoon

Milk – 1 and 1/4 cup or as require to make a soft dough

Salt  – 1/2 teaspoon

Oil  – 2 tablespoons

Garlic paste  – 2 teaspoon

Oregano  – 1 teaspoon

Black pepper powder  – 1/2 teaspoon

Some flour for dusting

For stuffing 



Onion – 3 sliced 
Capsicum – 1 large, thinly sliced 
Soya granules – 1/4 cup 
Garlic paste – 2 teaspoon
Pizza sauce – 1/4 cup 
Tomato ketchup – 2 tablespoon 
Origano – 2 tablespoon 
Chilli flakes – 1-2 teaspoon or to taste 
Black pepper powder – 1/2 teaspoon 
Cheese cube – 2



Method 



Take 1 cup lukewarm milk in a large bowl. Milk should be just warm not hot.
Add 1/4 teaspoon sugar and 2 teaspoon yeast. Stir well to dissolve both.

Now keep it covered for 15 minutes or until the mixture bubbled up. 

Add salt, oil, Oregano, garlic paste, black pepper powder and half of the flour. Mix well with a spoon.

Now add remaining flour and knead with hand. Knead well and add more milk if require. Knead the dough for 8 to 10 minutes. 

Smear the dough with some oil and cover. Allow the dough to proof for 2 hours. If the weather is cold increase the time.

For stuffing soak soya granules in hot water or microwave for one minute. Soak for 15 minutes. 

After 15 minutes drain water, squeeze and keep aside. 

Heat oil or butter in a pan. Add sliced onion. Fry till the onion becomes translucent. Add garlic paste. Fry till the onion becomes brown. 

Add chopped capsicum. You can use red or yellow bell peppers, olive or jalapeno if you have. 

Stir and add soaked soya granules. Saute for 1-2 minutes. 

Now add pizza sauce, tomato ketchup, origano, chilli flakes, black pepper powder. Saute for one minute more. 

Add chopped or grated cheese cubes. Mix well and remove from heat. 

Let the mixture cool down.

Preheat the oven at 200° for 15 minutes. 

Grease a baking tray or line with parchment paper or aluminium foil. 

Now take out the dough. It will be double. Punch down the dough to remove the air.
 

You can make 6-7 large calzone. I have made 14 small sized calzone and 3 small braided pizza out of this dough. 

Divide the dough into equal portion. Make balls out of each portion. Roll out into thin circles on a flour dusted surface. 

Fill each circle with stuffing on half of the circle. 

Leaving the edges. Spread grated mozzarella cheese over the stuffing. Fold half of the circle over it. 

Press the edges to seal and ensure stuffing does not spill out. Use a fork to seal the edges. 

Make small slits with a knife over every calzone to escape the steam. 

Brush with butter or oil. 

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the calzone becomes golden brown. 

Let the calzone cool for 5-6 minutes before serving.

Serve with tomato sauce or cheese dip or any sauce. 

Happy baking……

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
