Stromboli and Calzone (Italian)

Photo by Richardzx
Calzone is a folded pizza shaped like a semi-circle or half moon. Bread dough filled with pizza ingredients such as mozzarella, tomato and dry-cured ham or Prosciutto. You can make Mediterranean ones using Feta Cheese, and Mediterranean ingredients. For me, I like to add what is called 'erős paprika', in English - hot green pepper. The 'burst' flavor in every bite of this hot green pepper is just amazing! Of course, the cheese plays a big part of the great taste! Will post about Stromboli soon...

  1. I love calzones. Do you know of a good gluten free recipe for the dough?

  2. Hi CjRussell, Thank you for your comment. I might know of one gluten free recipe for the dough:

    1.5 cups all purpose GF flour mix
    1 cup warm 2% milk
    1 tablespoon of dry yeast + 1 tablespoon sugar
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp Italian seasoning
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tsp kosher salt, or 1/2 tsp regular salt
    Brown or white rice flour for dusting, or corn meal
    Pam or butter for greasing
    parchment paper to cover the sheet pan
