I decided to make a couple mini calzones to use up the ingredients from the fridge. I just made a quick smaller version of my dough for this recipe. It’s pretty easy with 1 cup of flour and half cup of warm water with 1 tsp. yeast, ½ tsp. salt and ½ tsp. sugar. It is simple and easy to mix together. And delicious! This recipe is good for four snack size calzones or two meal size portions. I absolutely loved these. I think my family will like them too!

Toppings – I used mushrooms, black olives, and red onions. But you could also put any veggies in this calzone i.e., green peppers, zucchini, broccoli, etc. You may want to steam harder vegetables a little bit or par boil them so they are partially cooked before adding to calzone.
Daiya shredded cheese ( used the cheddar because that is what I have today.)
Split dough in quarters. Spread out/roll out into 4 circles. Place a few tablespoons of sauce on top of the dough. Top with desired toppings.
Bake in 400 degree oven for 18 – 20 minutes until golden brown.
On the baking sheet - finish. The sauce & cheese came out a little bit.
1 cup flour
½ tsp. sugar
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. active dry yeast
½ cup warm water
Put all dry ingredients in a glass mixing bowl and stir to combine. Pour in the warm water and mix until forms a ball. Knead ball in bowl for a few minutes. I just used the fork to continue to stir and knead the dough. Cover and allow to rise approximately 2 hours.
