What's for dinner you ask?!

CALZONES!!! mmmmmm!!!

If you wanna try them...here is the recipe! ;0)

1 cup lukewarm water
1 tsp yeast
2 cups plus 6 tbsp white bread flour (if you prefer whole wheat I'd do half and half)
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp olive oil

Jar of Marinara sauce

Lots of yummy cheese!!! I usually use...provolone, ricotta, parmesan, and mozarella.

**any other ingredients you wan to throw in (spinach, mushrooms, italian sausage, etc) be creative**

For the dough, add the water in your bread maker, followed by the yeast, oil, and then the flour. Be sure to cover the yeast/water mixture completely with the flour (yeast likes sugar...but not salt) this way your dough will rise better. then just add the sugar and then the salt....set the "dough" option on your bread maker and VOILA!

When your dough is ready, heat the marinara and prep your calzones with the fillings. Oil the calzones and stick in the oven.

Bake at about 400 degrees 'til golden.

Enjoy.

  5. You actually don't really have to have a bread maker...I used to make them by hand all the time...it's just a lot of kneading. If you have a kitchen aid you can do it in that too it'll save your arms! :0)
