Recipes and Tips for Healthier Living and Smarter Budgeting

Wednesday, April 14, 2010


This is one of my family's favorite recipes! It does take longer to make than some things, so I don't make it all the time, but it is a great dinner item to eat while traveling, (as long as you don't fill them too full or messy), if you can plan ahead. It's also a versatile recipe, since you fill the calzones with the toppings you like, which could be different each time, or different for each calzone (depending on each person's preferences and/or allergies). And besides being wonderfully delicious, it provides your family a few servings of grains and vegetables in one meal!


1 c. warm water
2 1/4 tsp. yeast
1 Tb. olive or vegetable oil
1 tsp. salt
2 1/2 c. whole wheat flour

Mix and knead (by hand or machine) until dough is soft, pliable, and non-sticky.
Allow to rest while preparing toppings.
Grease two large cookie sheets.
Divide dough into 6 equal parts. Roll each part into about a 7-inch circle with rolling pin.
Spread desired pizza sauce and layer desired toppings on half of each circle to within 1 inch of edge.
Fold dough over filling, fold edges up, pinching at intervals to securely seal.
Place on cookie sheets.
(Brush tops with slightly beaten egg, if desired.)
Bake 20-30 min. or until golden brown.
