Mushroom and Paneer Stuffed Calzone

A calzone  which in Italian means “stocking” or “trouser” or “drooping sack” or “hanging fold” is a dish that originates from Italy. It is made of ingredients similar to pizza folded over and shaped like a crescent before being cooked. The typical calzone is stuffed with tomato and mozzarella, and may include other ingredients usually associated with pizza toppings. I had some left over Pizza base and decided to try it out. I’ve tried the mushroom and paneer stuffed calzone. Here’s the recipe.

•    Pizza Crust 8″ (6 oz dough): 1
•    Curry Pizza sauce : ¼ Cup
•    Thinly sliced onions: ¼ Cup
•    Tomatoes: ¼ Cup Chopped and deseeded.
•    Fresh mushrooms: ¼ cup
•    1 tbsp Vegetable oil
•    ½ tsp Cumin powder
•    ½ Cayenne pepper
•    Salt to taste.
•    Paneer crumbled 1 cup
•    Water for sealing
•    Oil

•    Heat oil in a pan. Add onions and fry till pink
•    Add tomatoes, paneer and mushrooms and spices. Sauté about 2 to 4 minutes on high. Let it cool.
•    Oil an aluminum baking pan
•    Place the pizza crust.
•    Brush the Pizza crust with oil.  Turn it over so that the oiled surface is in touch with the baking pan.
•    Spread the pizza sauce leaving about  ¾” to the edge empty.
•    Put all the filling on top of the sauce on the lower half of the pizza base.
•    Apply water to the empty area and fold it over the filling.
•    Seal the edges and prick the top with a fork to make holes for steam to escape.
•    Pre-heat oven to 450º F.
•    Put the assembled Calzone on the pizza peel.
•    Transfer the Calzone in the pan from the peel to the stone.
•    Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Preparation time: 30 minutes.
