Ingredients

How to make it

  • Dough:
  • Form a ball with the dough oil the surface and place in a warm place for an hour.
  • Spread some semolina flour on a dry cutting board.
  • Start by pushing down and away from the center of the dough ball working your hands in a circular motion while pushing with the opposite hand.
  • *Tip to speed thing up like we all do place the dough on the oven door for just a minute no longer, this will help relax the dough for easier stretching.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and set aside while you grate the cheese.
  • If you have difficulty use a rolling pin to roll the dough thin.
  • First recipe:
  • Place a few tablespoons of sauce in the center of the dough, and swirl it around leaving two inches of dough.
  • Add half the spinach then half the portabella mushrooms on top.
  • Next place the mozzarella and 1 oz of sharp cheddar cheese on top.
  • Carefully fold over dough toward you and press to seal.
  • Crimp the edges over and indent with your fingers.
  • Slice three vent holes on top.
  • Sprinkle with one ounce of grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • Place in a preheated 475 F. oven and bake until golden and cheese on top begins to bubble.
  • Second Recipe:
  • Place the remaining spinach in the center.
  • Next place the remaining Portabella mushrooms.
  • Place the artichokes on top.
  • Then half the remaining sharp cheddar cheese.
  • Carefully fold over dough toward you and press to seal.
  • Crimp the edges over and indent with your fingers.
  • Sprinkle with one ounce of grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • Place in a preheated 475 F. oven and bake until golden and cheese on top begins to bubble.
  • Heat marinara in a small dish or ramekin. and use for dipping.
  • Enjoy!

    These look wonderful! I just created a Calzone, Stromboli and Handheld Meals group on here. I will tell you what the URL is to it if you cannot find it when you search it on "groups". I found an amazing Brocoli Chicken Calzone. It will appear on here along with other recipes I have in my collection.

    Your calzones look amazing! I surely will make them!

    Wow, I caught the calzone pic in "crazy about greens" group, and just had to come and check it out. Fabulous pics and step-by-step instructions! I love calzones, and spinach just happens to be one of my favs, although I've never tried to make them. I like your tip on using semolina flour. You've inspired me, so I'm going to try this soon! Thanks Michael :) Bookmarked, ^5
