Today we begin the 2nd week of Blogging Marathon, my theme for this week is “Stuffed Breads”. To make the theme challenging Valli wants us to make very specific stuffed breads: Stuffed Yeast bread, Stuffed Roti/ Paratha & Stuffed Naan/ Kulcha.
So for the “Stuffed Yeast Bread”, I made a “Calzone“. Calzone is nothing but a folded pizza, all the gooey and yummy goodness of pizza in a portable turnover form. After tasting her first calzone ever, my mom commented that this is better than pizza because your fingers are clean when eating and there are less chances of toppings falling off. I have to agree with that. Calzones are easier to carry and cleaner to eat.
I used a wholewheat pizza dough for the covering. For the fillings, I used the leftover roasted veggies from here, thawed frozen spinach and grated cheese. Calzones are very easy to make and they are very versatile. Find your favorite pizza dough recipe and fill them with your favorite pizza toppings and you are in for a filling and delicious meal.
I had a little helper in the kitchen to make calzones. My 5 year old wanted to roll the dough and fill the calzones with cheese. He also filled his tummy with a little cheese in the process.
