Yummy food.

Yesterday it was my son's day to choose dinner. Always a tense moment as he is a trained chef and so often comes up with complex recipes.  This day was no exception. He told me he wanted Calzones.  "What is that when it's at home?" I asked him.  It turned out they are like folded over pizzas.  So off we tootled to the shops after chef had made the pizza dough and left it to prove.

We bought basil, mozzarella, panchetta and some black olives. When we got back home the dough was divided up and made into small rounds.

Then we chopped olives, ham,sun-dried tomatoes,capers, mozzarella and grated some cheese.

We heaped on the yummies and folded over the pizza bases. Then pressed the edges down firmly and washed with egg-wash.

In the oven till they were nice and brown. Some filling escaped but there was plenty yummy stuff left.

I can promise you they didn't last long!

I haven't got a precise recipe as Chef told me what to do, but here is one I found on the internet. It has different fillings but you can  put in what you like. Give it a try and let me know how you got on. Enjoy!

This looks so yummy! I love calzones. A restaurant down the street from me makes a vegetarian calzone that is divine. Now I'm craving one. I must find a recipe for a gluten free version. :)
