Calzones are a popular dinner option at our house, and they work well at home or on the go. Over the summer, I made the pizza pockets from 100 Days of Real Food for one of our many evenings when we were out at a swim meet during dinner time. Everyone liked them except for my daughter, who refused to eat them. I couldn’t understand it because she loves pizza.
I modified the recipe to make the dough less dry, and after a few tries I found a version that everyone, including my daughter, loves. The key is to roll the dough very thin and pinch the edges together on just one side. The possibilities are limitless when it comes to fillings, but I’m partial to this version. If you want to keep it vegan, fill the calzone with dairy-free pesto and dried tomatoes for a delicious twist on this classic meal.
