A couple weeks ago Cookies was moaning for pizza, but I just was a little tired of the same old ingredients over and over again. Standing over the cutting board with piece of bacon, onion and cheese I was thinking, what I can do… pizza shitzza… started cutting things and just let it flow, thinking where will I end up… happened it was something similar to real calzone. I actually didn’t aim for it, nor looking for any recipes. Cookies called it that way when I served it.
It happened that my thoughtless cutting and mixing ended up really good. This time just made it smaller, cutting the dough in 4 portions instead of two. Cookies may have nice lunch for tomorrow. He always say that the best dinner is the one that will feed him next day for lunch 😉 He is hardcore on not eating salads and other normal stuff… well don’t get me wrong – I mean it’s normal for me 😛
Today, I prepared different stuffing with ham and mushrooms, and this all ended with aromatic calzone with delicious insides. If you are interested, the recipe for pizza dough you will find here.
- ham - 250g
- mushrooms - 500g
- onion - 1 big
- cheddar cheese - 150g
- tomato concentrate - 1 tbsp
- ketchup - 2 tbsp
- oregano - to taste
- salt, pepper - to taste
- ghee - or oil
Dice onion and ham. Slice mushrooms. Fry ham with onion for couple minutes, add mushrooms or fry it separate - if you have a washer 0_o I do... Cookies already cleaned most of the mess I made... but I didn't even start with the dough.... 0_o Stir it all together, add concentrate and ketchup, spice with salt, pepper and oregano. Set aside. Prepare dough like for pizza... Cut the dough into 4 portions and flatten it with rolling pin into a nice round, if you are more skilled than me... Put the stuffing along with the grated cheddar cheese, on one half of the dough and cover with the other half of the dough and close it tight. Though don’t forget to stab it with your fork few times, so the hot steam can escape. Bake like a regular pizza, max 20 minutes in the oven preheated to 220C.
Serve and enjoy a simple meal for Sunday dinner. If you want to you could also add sundried tomatoes into the crust mix, or grated parmesan cheese on top prior to baking it. Also sprinkling parsley on the stuffing would add extra kick ;-)
Until next time, take care of yourself and each other 0_o
PS/ Cookies thoughts: I wasn't complaining. Mostly I was praying to not be tortured with GRILLED CHIX, COUSCOUS and TOMATOES OR CUCUMBERS.(Note she was watching my editing this and said I was repetitive!) truth is this was tasty and really spectacular and surprising as she really never did it before, and its a bit different for her as it required a bit more work, but still off the charts. Magda Cooks… it just right! and so will you if you follow the recipe!
