Calzone Stuffed with Mushroom and Cheese

Calzone with Mushroom and Cheese
Hope everyone had a great long weekend..Todays recipe is gonna be calzone..For those who had not heard of this “Calzone is a folded pizza that is stuffed with your favorite veggies and baked”.This dish is originated in italy..This is pretty simple to make..Infact you could stuff some chicken filling inside and do the same..or any filling will do..As you can see I made a couple of big calzone,if you are making this for parties you could make small ones and serve as a appetizer.Traditionally the filling is cooked first and filled,But I added it raw and I liked that way(it is easy that way)...They use Marinara sauce in it but I used tomato ketchup.This makes life easier and it came pretty great...So hope you try this and let me know what you think.


For Dough:

All Purpose flour-2 cup
Yeast-1 tblspn
Sugar-1 tsp
Salt to taste
Warm Milk-1 cup or as needed
Olive oil-1 tblspn

For Filling:

Onion-1 sliced

Mix tomato ketchup with minced garlic and set aside.

Take flour in a bowl and mix salt with it.Mix yeast,sugar with warm milk and set it aside till it foam up.Mix the flour with the yeast water till it forms a soft dough.Apply oil in it and cover it..Set this aside in a warm place till it doubles in size.

When it doubles,knock out the air and knead the dough for 3 min.Divide it into two equal portions and set it aside.

Roll one dough into round shape...Apply the garlic ketchup generously on the rolled dough.Add onions,mushrooms,capsicum,salt,pepper on one side of the rolled dough.Sprinkle cheese generously over the veggies.Fold the dough so that it forms a semi circle shape.Seal the edges.Apply some oil on top of the calzone..

Do exactly same to the other dough.Place both the dough in a well oiled baking tray and set it in the preheated oven.

Cook for 35-40 min till the top become golden in colour.

Remove it from the oven and apply some butter on the top so that the top looks glossy.
