Or in my family we call these hot pockets. If we call them calzones my children won't eat them. If we call them hot pockets they eat. Go figure.
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
ham (I use canadian bacon for pizza)
sliced swiss cheese
- In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
- Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 15x10-inch rectangle. Cut into 6 equal rectangles.
- Top with ham and cheese. Brush edges of dough with water. Fold dough over filling to opposite edge, streching if necessary. Seal edges with tines of a fork.
- Place calzones on baking sheet. Prick tops with a fork. Bake about 15 minutes or until lightly golden in a preheated 400 degree oven. Place on wire rack until cool enough to eat.
