Shortcut Calzone Recipe


Homemade calzone is usually time consuming to prepare. However, with an automatic bread machine, the dough almost makes itself, and requires very little hands-on time from the cook. This Shortcut Calzone relies on homemade dough made in the automatic bread machine set to the dough cycle; the filling starts with Italian Meat Mix from the Italian Meat Mix Module which can be made months ahead and stored in the freezer. Packaged, sliced pepperoni and packaged shredded mozzarella cheese are filling additions that take no time to prepare. The sauce is simply a jar of store-bought spaghetti sauce.
””
For those who don’t own an auto bread machine (they are often available for under $8 at thrift stores), or who are extra short on time, frozen dough may be used in a pinch. French bread dough will come out crisper and more like pizzeria calzone, but regular bread dough may be used in a pinch. For a complete meal, just add a tossed salad.

Don’t be surprised if this becomes a favorite family meal. Kids even like to help roll the dough, and they can add their own additions to the filling.

6 Servings

Crust
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
3 1/2 cups flour

  5. Divide the dough into 6 pieces.

  6. Form each piece into a ball and let rest a few minutes.

  7. Roll each ball of dough into an 8" circle.
