A Calzone is a fold-over pizza in short, according to Wikipedia, and you can fill it with whatever you fancy as long as it has lots of mozzarella cheese as one of the fillings. I had to make some pre-baked pizza bases for a party on Saturday and decided to make a quick snack for the children!!
I simply caramelized two onions with olive oil,salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar and a teaspoon of brown sugar and when the onions where soft and golden brown, I stuffed it in a calzone with some grated mozzarella and peccorino. The children LOVED it and I loved the idea that cooking can be so simple and yet so rewarding!!!

For the Calzone you can use your own basic dough recipe or you can follow mine!! If you are pushed for time, buy a kg of dough from your local bakery!!!

These are the easy steps you have to follow!!

Calzone
Roll out the pizza dough and lay your filling on the one half. I used onions and cheese for this calzone, but the possibilities are endless!!!
Brush some water around the edges and fold over the dough to form a big pie!!! Make sure all the edges are closed properly otherwise the filling will run out!!
After about 30 minutes your Calzone will be ready !!!
Slice and enjoy the golden onions and the stringy melted cheese…Yum!!!

    I've never seen a calzone that wasn't dripping in pizza sauce. For some reason, your version seems so much more "grown up."

    That's so funny! Just yesterday we were watching a Jamie oliver episode where he was making a calzone and I commented to Tom how easy that looked and something we could easily whip up ourself and now you've gave the good exampe here. Looks delicious!

    Hmm yummy! I used to think making calzones was so difficult, but I agree with you now. They are so easy to make and you can use your imagination for the fillings. Great job!
