Chicken and Vegetable Calzone
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
400g (14 ounces) chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon chili
1/2 teaspoon sweet pepper
200g (7 ounces) mushrooms
2 big onions
1 red pepper
1 courgette aka Zucchini (about 250g or about 9 ounces)
200g (7 ounces) cheese (grated)
1 teaspoon marjoram or oregano
oil for frying
160g (1.6 ounces) tomato puree
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cube of broth
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon chili
450g (almost 16 ounces) flour
3 teaspoons of 18 percent cream
100 (3.5 ounces) yeast
1 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon marjoram
1/2 cup of lukewarm water
1 tablespoon oil of olives
egg to spread if need be
Cut the chicken breast into large chunks. Add salt, chili and sweet pepper.
Cut vegetables into large chunks.
Fry meat and vegetables a little bit and sprinkle with marjoram.
Boil ingredients in sauce on a low heat for about 5 minutes.
Mix the meat and vegetable stuffing with sauce. Place this somewhere to cool down.
Knead ingredients for dough. Divide into 2 parts (one of them little bigger).
Shape circle "pancake" from bigger part of dough, then leave it to rise (about 15 min.)
(Make sure your stuffing has cooled down before you perform this next step)
Put the stuffing mixed with sauce on the dough. The outside section (think pizza crust) of the dough shouldn't be covered with stuffing. Basically, as shown in the image, leave some of the outside area of the dough uncovered.
Sprinkle with cheese.
Place the other dough section of top. Turn up the outside edges of the dough pieces and close tightly.
Cut cross-shaped hole in the middle of dough.
You can beat and egg together and use an egg wash on the dough. This will help give it a golden brown color when it cooks.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 250 degrees centigrade or 480 degrees Fahrenheit, or until the dough becomes golden brown.
