Oh calzone! No words … Just drool… Yum!
Friday night pizza night! Well calzone night to be exact…. My oh my oh my oh my… Cheesy heaven sharing plate with the prettiest salad on the side! This is sooooooo good. Yes I seem to say that about many of my dishes but art of zen foods are to thank for this dish. Their violife cheeses are sublime.
For the cheats dough mix:
190g of self raising flour
1/2 a sachet of yeast
110 ml of water
1/2 tablespoon oil,
A pinch of salt and sugar
For the filling:
A handful of scallions and basil roughly chopped and mixed with half a packet of violife dairy free pizza cheese and a packet of original violife dairy free cream cheese.
Roll out dough (no need to let this dough sit its ready to go from the off) and place mixture in the middle of the dough. Fold and seal! Pop in the oven at 180c for 20+ min with 2 min under the grill and a drizzle of olive oil.
Serve with a side salad if you haven’t eaten the entire thing straight from the oven. Oh and a cheeky glass of wine definitely helps too.
Now excuse me while I serve myself another portion. Drool….
