Our two favourite Calzones!

I know we already have a calzone post, but these two recipes are tried and true. We even served them at a dinner party!

My wife has perfected dough making and has it so fast now! You can use store bought dough or short crust pastry sheets for ease, but probably not bases as they are too hard to fold.

Anyway, we have the following two: Spinach, feta and sun dried tomato and Salami, chorizo and mushroom!

  • Can of tomatoes and reduce down a bit

  • Let cool for a few minutes, then add sun dried tomatoes and mix in
  • Roll out your dough, spread out tomato paste with a 2cm gap from the edge.
