Get your kitchen associates settled comfortably. Make sure they have enough things to keep them occupied for the next half hour so you don't have to use floury hands to toss a teething ring way.

First make the dough.

Combine yeast, warm water and sugar. Mix lightly and add oil.
(The complete recipe is at the bottom of the post.)

Mix the dry ingredients...Add the bubbly yeast mixture to the dry.

Grate your cheese...

Chop the peppers...

Have fun...
Prepare other yummy filling you'd like to add to your calzones.

Keep everyone happy...
Make your sauce...
Or use a jar of sauce if you'd prefer.

Get your older kitchen associates to help assemble the calzones...

Fold and press...


1 1/2 tsp Dry Active Yeast
1 cup warm water (110 degrees)1 Tbs Sugar
2 Tbs Olive Oil
2 Cups Gluten Free Flour Mix
3/4 Cup Sweet (Glutinous) Rice Flour
2 tsp Italian Seasoning Mixture
1/2 tsp salt

Combine yeast, warm water and sugar. Mix lightly and float olive oil on top of the yeast mixture. Let stand for 10 - 15 minutes. It should be bubbly on top before use.

Mix flours seasoning and salt and add wet yeast mixture. Divide dough into 3 parts (or 2 if you want the calzone bigger) . Lightly dust a surface to roll out the dough. I use parchment paper to roll it out because then you can bake on the paper. Roll into a circle approx 11-12 inches in diameter (or 14-15" if doing 2 calzones).

I found this recipe here.

You can really fill them with anything you want. Spinach, cheese, ham, pepperoni, sausage, onions, green peppers, mushrooms.

What is your favorite combination?
