First make a basic pizza dough
1 package active-dry yeast
1-1/2 cups very warm water (110Â°F)
18 oz. (4 cups) all-purpose flour; more for dusting
1-1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. olive oil
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and set aside. Mix all othe ingrediants then add yeast and water. Flour your hands and kneed until smooth.
Cover the bowl with a towel and set it in a warm place like on top of the stove while you get everything else ready.
Calzones are kind of like pizza pockets, so whatever you like on a pizza will be good in a calzone. Traditionall calzones didn't have a pizza sauce but they might have sliced plum tomatoes and basil. They also would traditionally have ricotta cheese not mozzarella, but it's your calzone you stuff it you way!
The traditional stuffing is: ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, sliced plum tomatoes, broccolli , basil, garlic, salt and a sprinkle of olive oil.
After you ready you stuffing stretch out the dough into a round circle about 10" in diamter. You could use a rolling pin. Put your stuffing inside the circle and fold the circle in half. Leave a space about 2" wide from the open edge. Pinch the edges together. Starting from one end fold over an edge of the dough and pinch it. Then move up to just past the end of that pinch and fold over that section and pinch it. Do that all the way around and it should look like a braid along the edge of the calzone. This not only looks nice but holds the stuffing in. Now ***** a few small holes over the stuffed section to let steam escape.
Rub a spoonful or two of olive oil on a pizza pan and toss a few piches of corn meal over it. This will help brown the bottom of the calzone and keep it from sticking.
Now bake it at about 350 degrees F for about 15 to 20 minutes or the calzone turns light brown/tan. Pull it ot and let t rest for about 5 minutes and eat!
Now if your making this over a campfire in a firepie pan oil both sides of the pan generously or use a no stick spray. They cook pretty fast over an open fire so don't get to close to the fire!
