From last few weeks we are having a potluck with other 2 families on Friday evenings,we decided to have different cuisines for each week.Till date we had a BBQ party,Dosa Party and Italian Dishes,We had good time tasting and trying new dishes for the potluck and learning new games.
Last weekend we had Italian Dishes for the potluck so I decided to make Grilled Eggplant Lasagna and Calzone,both of them were a big hit and my friends loved them.I made my own pizza dough for this dish,it was fun playing with the dough.Here goes the recipe.
Pizza Dough:I made half of the recipe which I made for Pizza Base.U can find the recipe for Pizza Base here.Mozzarella Cheese:1/2 cup
Marinara Sauce:1/2 cupVeggies Of ur Choice:I used Onions,peppers,mushroom and grilled eggplant pieces
Egg Wash/Milk:1/4 cup
1.Pre-heat the oven at 450 degrees.Knead the pizza dough well,take a small portion of it,using a rolling pin spread the dough into circle,now apply the marinara sauce on half of the pizza dough leaving half inch all round.
2.Put the veggies of ur choice,sprinkle cheese and fold it with the other half of the circle and press the edges to seal the calzone,using a pizza cutter u can trim the edges to make it look perfect.3.Using a fork we can make the impression on the edges,now transfer these to a greased baking tray and brush the Calzones with egg wash/milk to get a good golden color on top,make a small slit on top of the calzone for the steam to escape out.Put this tray in the oven and bake it for 20-25 mins(or till the calzone turn golden color and crisp on top)4.When done bring out from the oven and apply little butter on top,so that the calzone will not turn dry.5.Serve it hot.U can have it with tomato ketchup too.
