Recipe - Calzone

Sorry about the delays in posting anything here but work is manic at the moment and I just don't seem to remember to take pictures of and document what I cook.

But, I promise to try and update more often from now on.

Homemade pizzas always taste better than the ones you buy in the shop and I particularly like Calzones. You can vary the fillings to suit your taste, this is just a suggestion.


500g mince
1 yellow onion, split and sliced
Olive oil
Chilli Mayo
Roasted Garlic Mayo
Pickled Chillies
Button Mushrooms, thickly sliced
Grated Cheese
Mozzarella Cheese
Rindless smoked bacon
1 portion of pizza dough (I cheated and bought a kit that just needs added water)

Set your oven to 225c/425f/gas mark 7.

Start by grilling the bacon until it's crispy, cut into small pieces and put to the side. Fry the mince in the olive oil until it starts to brown, then add the sliced mushrooms and the onion and let this slowly fry until the onion is nice and soft.

In the meantime prepare the pizza dough and roll it out into a more square shape than you'd normally do for a 'normal' pizza. Spread the base with the different mayos and then put the mince, mixed with the bacon, on top of this - leaving a bit of an edge so you can close the pizza up later. Top with mozzarella and grated cheese and finish off with the sliced pickled chillies. Close up the pizza and put it into the oven for 25 minutes or until it's nicely browned.
