Recipe: Quick Storecupboard Calzone

I’m a big calzone fan, (and a fan of big calzones…) and made this the other night for friends coming to tea.

Its great as a last-minute storecupboard supper, as the only must-have ingredients are:  


Quick Storecupboard Calzone 2A packet of bread mix (or flour and yeast) – white bread works well, but you can also use wholemeal, seeded/granary, or some of the interesting flavours around at the moment.

Passata (or if you don’t have any to hand, a jar of pasta sauce would do the trick)

Mozerella (though I’ve made this with cheddar and goats cheese in a fix, and it was still cheesily good!)

The fillings are then entirely up to you – a few suggestions below, but anything goes!

 Here’s a few of my favourite calzone recipes from the web:

1. Tomato Calzone from delicious magazine

I would never have thought of using chutney and caramelised onions but this looks great, and very quick.



2. Mushroom & Goat’s Cheese Calzone from BBC Good Food

 A similar idea with goat’s cheese instead of mozerella, but this time with a creamy mushroom filling.  Great for a filling winter supper.

3. Calzone filled with Roasted Peppers from Waitrose Recipes

I’ve made something similar to these little calzones for picnics in the past and they go down a treat.  Great cold, or if you bake them in the morning and wrap them in foil they keep their heat and can still be warm at lunchtime.
