Many years ago I got into a pizza-making craze, and I made many different types of pizzas and calzones almost every weekend. After that other crazes followed, and I just simply stopped making pizzas altogether.
This Ramadan I finally dusted off my old pizza cookbook to make Prawn Panzerotti, a dish I tried many many years ago before I started blogging my cooking adventures. This recipe requires a batch of calzone dough, which I have now modified for making in my Kenwood BM450 breadmaker using the Pizza Dough program.
Based on the recipe from 500 Pizzas & Flatbreads.
Breadmaker Calzone Dough
- 225 grams water
- 1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 175 grams plain flour
- 200 grams bread flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 3/4 teaspoons instant yeast
- 1 teaspoon salt
In your breadmaker pan, add the water and olive oil.
Add the flours, sugar and salt.
Make a small well at the center of the flour, but not too deep as far as the liquid.
Add the yeast in the well.
Transfer the pan to your breadmaker, and run the Pizza Dough program.
After the program has finished kneading, let rest for 10 minutes. My Kenwood BM450 has a 1 hour rise cycle, but I just take it out much earlier.
Use as desired.
