Whole wheat Calzones

250g Strong Whole wheat flour
100g Strong Plain Flour
1 Sachet of fast acting Yeast
1 1/2 Tsp Olive Oil
250ml Warm water
1/2 Tsp Salt
Pizza sauce ( can of chopped tomato, basil, oregano, onion & garlic)
Pizza toppings of choice


In a mixing bowl add flour, salt and yeast and mix


Add warm water and olive oil and knead well for at least 5 minutes.IMG_4506

Place the dough in a lightly floured bowl and cover with cling film.IMG_4511

Leave to prove in a warm place for about an hour until doubled in size.IMG_4512

Tip the dough onto a floured surface and knock out the air.IMG_4513

Knead briefly for about 2 minutes.IMG_4515

Using about half of the dough, roll out the dough to approximately 14inch circle. Place the dough off centre on a baking tray.IMG_4516

Spread on the pizza sauce on half of the dough generously, keeping about 2 cm from the edge.IMG_4517

Top the calzone with fillings/topping of choice, I used spinach, sweetcorn, mushrooms, onions, peppers and tomatoes.IMG_4518

Sprinkle on the cheese, adding some to the edge where there is no sauce, as this will help seal the calzoneIMG_4519

Fold over the other half of the doughIMG_4520

Fold and pinch in the dough edge to seal.IMG_4521

Sprinkle a little cheese over the top


Bake in the oven at 220c for 15-20 minutes.IMG_4529

It’s ready to serve, I added a little garlic herb cheesy sauce and some extra pizza sauce.IMG_4530

Enjoy this calzone, I must warm you – it was pretty big! Like Franke and Benny’s size!
