This month I decided to make calzones for the Whip Up Something New challenge. Every weekend, either Friday or Saturday night, depending on our schedule, I make homemade pizza but I was getting a bit sick of it so I thought this would be a simple twist.
I usually switch off between KitchenAid’s pizza dough recipe and Ina Garten’s recipe, depending on how much I want to make and/or freeze for later. This past week I did the KitchenAid recipe. Here it is:
After making the dough and letting it rise, I rolled it out. Though my husband is definitely stronger than me, I’ve become a master dough and fondant roller over the past couple years. We like our crust very thin.
I called my sister to tell her that calzones were so much tastier than pizza and I couldn’t figure out why; she said “Easy! It’s because the dough-filling ratio is much higher with a calzone.” Of course.
