Veggie Calzones

Veggie Calzones

"Bread dough makes it a breeze to assemble these savory turnovers from Lee Ann Arey of Gray, Maine. 'If you have a favorite pizza dough, use it instead,' she recommends. 'These freeze well and once they are frozen, they can be heated in half an hour.'"

  1. In a large skillet, saute the mushrooms, onion and green pepper in oil until tender. Add tomatoes; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Stir in tomato paste; set aside. Combine cheeses and set aside.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, divide dough into eight pieces. Roll each piece into a 7-in. circle. Spoon a scant 1/2 cup of vegetable mixture and 1/4 cup of cheese mixture over one side of each circle. Brush edges of dough with water; fold dough over filling and press edges with a fork to seal. Place calzones 3 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  3. Beat egg and water; brush over calzones. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes. Cool desired number of calzones; freeze for up to 3 months. Bake the remaining calzones 18-22 minutes longer or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
  4. To use frozen calzones: Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

First time I've made or even eaten calzones and I was impressed. I made my own dough and only had 2 tomatoes to hand. I also used pizza sauce instead of the paste because I had some leftover. My...
