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.
