Mushroom & Cheese Calzone Recipe with step wise pictures
Pizza, Calzones = Kids favourite, not only kids even adults go crazy. Making it at home is super easy and affordable than you think. I have shared like so many calzone and pizza recipes on my blog so far. The first stage of making pizza or calzone is forming the crust. You can use some of my favourite pizza crust recipes on my blog.
I just used the mushroom filling alone. But you can go further and top with raw sliced bell peppers, onion slices, olives and tomatoes for more filling and tasty toppings. If you are not a fan of mushrooms you can add paneer or chicken instead of mushrooms or check out the other pizza which i have on my blog.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
