Finding money in your pocket is great, but finding pizza toppings in your pocket is way better.
GF. V. SF.
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup warm water (105°F - 110°F)
1 tbsp active dry yeast
2 cups GF AP flour (I use Pamela's Artisan Blend)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
Veggies (I used green peppers, sun dried tomatoes, and morel mushrooms)
Vegan cheese (I used Miyoko's Creamery Fresh VeganMozz)
Seasonings & herbs (I used Frontier Organic Pizza Seasoning & fresh flat leaf parsley)
Tip: Do not fill your calzone with sauce - save it for dunking!
Brushing & sprinkling:
Vegan parm or salt
Pizza or Italian seasoning
Sauce! (marinara, ranch, garlic and oil, the possibilities are endless)
Combine sugar, warm water, and yeast in a glass and let sit until foamy (about 5 mins) - if your mixture doesn't get foamy, your water is too hot or too cold. Or your yeast is dead. So sorry for your loss. Go get some more yeast and try again.
In the bowl of a stand mixer add flour, oil, and salt
Dump in the yeast mixture and mix using the hook attachment (or use your hands if you don't have a mixer) just until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl
If your dough is too dry - add more warm water, if it's too wet - add more flour
Place the dough ball in a lightly oiled bowl, cover, and rest for 30 minutes
Preheat oven to 450°F
Split your dough in half - this recipe makes 2 calzones
On a piece of parchment, roll the dough into an oval using a flour dusted roller
Arrange your filling on half of the dough, leaving about a 1" border so you can seal your calzone
Carefully, using the parchment for assistance, fold the naked side of your dough over the filling, matching up the edges as best as you can
Pinch the edges together creating a seal around your filling
Create 3 slits in the top of your calzone using a sharp knife so the steam can escape
Brush the entire thing with olive oil and sprinkle on seasoning & parm
Bake on a parchment lined baking pan for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown
Let stand 10 minutes before serving
It will be lava hot right out of the oven - trust me - LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!
Serve with dipping sauce!
Instead of using the usual pizza suspects, try stuffing this with broccoli and your fav vegan chedda - Golden Goop of the Gods!
