Undoubtedly, a magnificent option for family gatherings, with friends or simply to effortlessly enjoy this easy but exquisite preparation. Make the most of the tomato and basil season with fresh, whole wheat-style creations.

Of Italian origin, the calzone whose preparation is like pizza but closed and similar in appearance to a large empanada stuffed with mozzarella or ricotta and tomato. However, there are other combinations of fillings that use from different types of meat to vegetables. Generally, it is cooked in the oven, although there are also fried ones.

Let’s talk a bit about the recipe:

Preparing this whole wheat calzone is simple because there are no complications in terms of its preparation, and it has more than one advantage. The ingredients are frequently used and just a few, easy to find in any market. In addition, you can change any of them according to preference or need without inconvenience.

About the ingredients:

At Integralisimo, the whole wheat flour used is 100% organic whole wheat, finely ground (unless it is mentioned). In general, depending on the brand, it can absorb more or less liquid. For this reason I recommend incorporating the liquids gradually. As a result, keep in mind that the lower the volume, the lower the final product.

For its filling, there is a diversity of ingredients that give rise to different combinations. Which range from the typical and traditional cheese and tomato calzone to other with special preparations. Like the Sicilian calzone, which differs by its fried cooking in olive oil. They also exist with other fillings such as tuna, onion, spinach, chicken, meat, vegetables, etc.

The amount of filling to be used will be to personal taste. However, for an exquisite, forceful and satiating result, skimping is not recommended. Because it looks like a large empanada, if it doesn’t have enough filling, you’ll obtain an unappetizing and unattractive calzone. So don’t be afraid to use a good amount of filling.

About the filling:

This time it is a caprese calzone, whose name characterizes a typical filling that usually consists of 3 ingredients: tomato, basil and mozzarella cheese. In general, fresh tomato is used, but it can also be dehydrated, which should be hydrated with a little water beforehand.

On the other hand, if you use fresh tomato, what is recommended here is to cut slices and place them for a few minutes on absorbent kitchen paper. This is important for no excess liquid during cooking, resulting in a moist and slightly crispy dough.

About the dough:

Once the dough is leavened, roll it out in a circular and thin shape, as if you were going to make a traditional pizza. Then place the filling covering only half of the dough. Therefore, with the free end of the dough, cover the half that has the filling and seal the edges by pressing with your fingers. Finally, make a rim.

About cooking:

Finally, the calzone is baked at a high temperature that exceeds 200 °C – 392 °F for approximately 20 minutes. To obtain a good result, it is recommended to adapt the baking according to the type of oven available, since each one has a particular and unique cooking.
