A Keeper Calzone Recipe
« on: January 16, 2009, 11:10:52 PM »
These calzone turned out fantastic. It was-

KABF 100%
Water 60%
IDY .5%
Salt 2.5%
EVOO 2%
200g dough ball
bowl residue 1.5%

36 hour bulk ferment. I actually ended up rolling out the dough out for these. The filling was ricotta w/ egg, oregano, reggiano and romano. Fresh mozz, peperoni, sausage and kalamata olives were other filling choices. I brushed w/ an egg wash and baked at 450 til golden. The crust was soft yet chewy-just like I remebered when I was a kid.

I would like to try your recipe. Can you give weights in grams for ingredients? Do you ferment in refrigerator?

jgame,

If you go to the expanded dough calculating tool at http://www.pizzamaking.com/expanded_calculator.html, 1) enter the dough ball weight in grams (200g), 2) enter the baker's percents for everything but the flour, 3) select "1" dough ball, and 4) enter a bowl residue compensation of 1.5% (at the bottom of the tool), and you will have the ingredient quantities. If you need help, let me know.

jgame,

I did do the bulk ferment in the fridge. The dough calculatore Peter showed will give the exact #'s.

Have Fun,

Jeff

Very Nice Jeff! Trade you a slice of deep dish for half of that :)
Calzone and Shrimp cocktail perfect together!
Whats the egg wash comprised of? that gives it the shine right?
I have been doing rolls  lately just easier after making pizzas, I am eating a sausage ricotta, mozzarella, cheddar with dipping sauce  right now from this weekend. I will definitely give this a try, bake direct on stone?
But I don't do Olives, Yet :D

John-

Yep the egg gives it shine-1 egg and 1 TBS water. I actually baked these on a baking sheet because I forgot to preheat the stone.  :-[

Jeff,

Not having made calzones before this may be a dumb question but the recipe you give is that for 1 calzone or, if not, about how many and what size?

Thanks.

Dave

Dave,

No problem-the 200 gram dough ball is for one calzone. All you have to do is plug the numbers of dough balls you want into the dough calculator with the mentioned %'s and it will do the rest.

Best,

Jeff

Made calzones based Jeff's dough suggestion.  Had to wing it on the mixing and such.  Scaled it for 2 dough balls.  Turned out pretty good.  Think I rolled them out to too thin, but they were still good.  Stuffed with mozz/provolone blend, sausage, pepperoni, roasted peppers, mushrooms, and ricotta.  Marinara on the side.  I will surely do these again.  Good alternative to pies.  Thanks for the inspiration Jeff.

 I would like to try this recipe as I love Cazones, but I do not see the recipe listed.  Am I looking in the wrong spot?

Thanks,

KB,

The opening post gives the baker's percent version of the recipe. To get quantities, you should use the Dough Weight option of the expanded dough calculating tool at http://www.pizzamaking.com/expanded_calculator.html, and enter all of the baker's percents from the opening post (except for the flour), along with the other requested input data (including the bowl residue of 1.5%). If you have problems with this, let us know.

Thanks for bumping this thread IRHusker! I think I have only made calzone one other time since this post and will have to make them again soon.

Jeff, Thanks for the pics and explanation. I'm going to put this in my favorites. I keep getting asked yearly to do a class at the local bilingual school to show how to make pizza, but I didn't want to do pizzas. No oven there. But these I could do in a toaster oven and some tile. They have offered also to buy a tiny gas oven, about the same size as a toaster oven. Better get busy practicing making calzones.
