So, I found a recipe on another woman's blog that looked like an easy way to make a calzone. I really tried to make it work! Sadly, mine is not nearly as pretty as the other woman's but it was sure good! Because I am a bit of a perfectionist, you will not see a photo of my calzone, but you can look at the *F* *O* *O* *D* blog to see how it is supposed to look. You will notice I made a more simplified version.
- 2 loaves frozen bread dough, thawed (I think this is where I went wrong with mine, there was absolutly no frozen bread dough at the commissary, so I had to make do with refridgerated french bread dough, which did not want to stretch, so you lucky folks in America who have Walmart and other BIG grocery stores, go for the frozen dough!)
- 1 small can spagetti sauce (I got one with Italian flavoring)
- shredded mozzarella cheese
- sliced mushrooms
- flatten both loaves on a cookie sheet to form a rectangle of dough
- spread sauce down the middle, leaving at least an inch of dough on each side
- cover sauce with cheese
- cover cheese with pepperoni
- cover pepperoni with mushrooms
- cut strips along each side of the dough
- take a piece from each side and cross together (the refridgerated french bread will break at this point, and the sauce will ooze out, so hopefully there will be better luck with different dough)
- once all of the strips are coving the toppings cook at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes
- allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing
I promise even if it oozes out and doesn't look pretty, it still tastes great! Like a pizza on bread!
