Recipe
PRE TIME: 1 hr
COOKING TIME: 15 min
TOTAL TIME: 1 hr 15 min
2 SERVING
Ingredients:
  • For the dough
  • 5 cup AP flour
  • 2 tbsp. Instant yeast
  • 1 tbsp. Salt
  • 1 3/4 cup Water, lukewarm
  • 1 tbsp. Olive oil
  • For the tomato sauce
  • 3 medium Onion, sliced
  • 1 Garlic bulb, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cup Peeled tomatoes
  • For the filling
  • 1 cup Mushroom
  • 1 large Red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup Beef Chorizo slices
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tbsp. Parsley
Directions:
1
In a large bowl, add the flour, instant yeast, salt, and water. Knead the dough with your hands until it's smooth and elastic, about 7 to 10 minutes, adding more as necessary to make a soft, smooth dough.
2
Add olive oil to the dough and knead it with 1 more minute. Cover it, and let it rise for 1 to 2 hours, whatever fits your schedule.
3
Gently deflate the dough, and divide it into two pieces. Knead lightly to form 2 dough balls. Cover and let the dough rest to relax it and make it more cooperative.
4
In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and sautee the onion and garlic until fragrant. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add peeled tomatoes and cook for 15-20 minute until it's reduced by 30%.
5
Slice the mushroom and red bell pepper.
6
On a working surface, sprinkle a little four. Shape each dough ball into a 10x5-inch rectangular circle.
7
On half of each dough circle, add equal parts tomato sauce, red bell pepper, sliced mushroom, and beef chorizo slices. Then, top with Mozzarella cheese and parsly. Make sure to leave a little room around the edges so you can crimp the calzone shut.
8
Sprinkle the toppings with equal parts shredded Mozzarella cheese and parsley.
9
Then fold the other half of the dough over the toppings and crimp the edges.
10
Optional: top the calzone with extra tomato sauce and shredded Mozzarella cheese.
11
Bake in preheat oven at 425°F for about 15 minutes or until the dough is fully cooked and the calzone is golden brown.
