Tired of pizza? Lets try some calzones! It is an Italian turnover made from pizza dough stuffed with fillings like cheese, ham, vegetables or other varieties of ingredients. I had my first calzone many years ago, it was stuffed with baby spinach and cheese. I liked it so much but didn't know what was it called because back at that time, I was still very new to western meals.
I described what it looked like to Tom recently and he told me it is "calzone". I immediately checked it out from wikipedia and found that it is quite simple to make. Since I had some leftover canjun style grilled chicken, I decided to make some grilled chicken calzone with my pizza dough recipe. It turned out great. :-)
2. Filling (according to your preference) a) Canjun grilled chicken - cubed b) Grilled green pepper and onion - sliced or cubed c) some shredded cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese d) pizza sauce e) some black pepper f) some butter g) some Parmesan cheese powder
1. Pre-heat the oven at 450F 2. On the floured surface, roll each portion of the pizza dough to approx. 6" circle. 3. Spread about 1.5 tbsp pizza sauce on the half circle, leave about 1/3 edge. 4. Add in chicken, pepper,onion slices shredded cheeses, sprinkle some black pepper. 5. Fold dough over filling to form a half moon shape. 6. Seal the edge with a fork. 7. Baked in preheated oven for 30~35 minutes or until it turns golden brown. 8. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese when serve (optional)
