Calzone Pizza

Hey Gang,

Welcome to our Kids in the Kitchen Class on Tuesday 8th August.

We are making a delicious Calzone Pizza.

A calzone is an Italian oven-baked turnover, made with pizza dough. It originated in Naples in the 18th century. A typical calzone is made from salted bread dough, baked in an oven and is stuffed with salami, ham or vegetables, mozzarella, ricotta and Parmesan or pecorino cheese, as well as an egg. With Different regional variations are normally associated with pizza toppings. We are going to do just that!

During this class you will give to make your own homemade pizza dough and fill it with all your favourte toppings. These also tease just as good the next day and are great for picnics and lunch boxes.

Don’t forget to take a photograph and share it with us,
We love to see your cooking creation’s

For the dough:

  • 400 g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp of rapeseed oil
  • 200 ml of warm water
  • 2 packs 7g of fast-action yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar

  • Preheat the oven to 240C fan/gas mark 8 (You will reduce the heat just before you put the pizza in the oven
  • Add flour into a large mixing bowl. Add your salt, sugar, and mix.
    Make a little well in the middle.
  • In a measuring jug, add the fast-action yeast to the water. Pour it into the well.
    Add the oil and mix everything together well with a wooden spoon.
  • Flour your hands and use them to knead the mixture together in the bowl.
  • Sprinkle a dusting of flour on your work surface and give the dough another very quick knead. Stretch it as you go, allowing the yeast to do its magic.

  • Using a rolling pin Roll out the pizza dough into 4 12-15cm circles
  • Add the sauce on one side and top with your favourite toppings
  • Close the calzone, pulling the side without the filling over, then crimp around the edge, so it looks like a giant Cornish pasty and make 3 slits on the top
  • Transfer to a floured baking sheet and bake for 15 mins until golden and puffed up.
